You may see Polkaroo at the unemployment office soon.

With the Tories vowing to cut non-teaching positions, leader Tim Hudak won't say if that includes TVO funding.

It gets $13 million in taxpayer dollars each year from the Ministry of Education.

The Premier  - who used to be the Minister of Education - says she supported TVO then and continues to.

Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak laughed when pressed on what he'd do.

Hudak then pointed to how the Drummond Report  on government spending suggested scaling back the education sector. The report did not mention TVO.

The Tories plan to get rid of 9,700 non-teaching positions but wouldn't say if TVO staff were among them.
