With a detailed plan of an Ontario-based pension plan expected to be in Thursday's budget, the Tories continue throwing punches at the minority Liberals calling it a tax.

The Tories have released leaked cabinet documents that show higher payroll taxes will cause the province to loose 18,000 jobs over the next ten years

Standing up in Question Period, Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak refuses to use the word investment when referring to a pension plan because he says it is a payroll deduction.

But Premier Kathleen Wynne won't call it a tax, underlining their plan is about helping people save.

Wynne says the province wouldn't be contemplating its own pension plan if the Conservatives in Ottawa were open to CPP reform.

The Tories say their jobs plan will give people more money and believe they'll want to invest.
 
This, despite many not voluntarily investing in retirement right now.
