He's been talking about creating jobs all week but today, Tim Hudak says he wants to cut 100,000 of them in the public sector. The Progressive Conservative leader says it's the only way to to balance the books in 2016 - one year before the Liberals have promised to.

Hudak stresses his plan to slash jobs wouldn't affect those in education or nurses. If elected as Premier on June 12th, he also wants to put in place an across-the-board public sector wage freeze and shrink cabinet from 27 ministers to 16.

The premier called his ideas disastrous. While in Kingston, Kathleen Wynne says Hudak's plan with move Ontario backward because of service cuts, which would put the most vulnerable people at risk.

In Windsor, NDP leader Andrea Horwath said it would devastate families.

Horwath re-announced her party's plan for a 10 per cent credit on machine and equipment spending in the manufacturing sector. She maintains that will help create jobs.
