WATCH: Horwath, Hudak focus on your wallet

Both make pledges to get you more income

Both the Tories and NDP were out on the campaign trail with promises of putting more money in your wallet.

Time Hudak toured in Sudbury before coming back to to southern Ontario, pledging to phase in a 10 per cent cut to personal income taxes once Tory government balances the budget in 2016-17.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath was in a downtown Toronto cafe with promises to give small businesses a tax break so they can shoulder an increase of minimum wage to $12 dollars an hour.

The Liberal government increased it to $11 this year.

Horwath says she would increase it by 50 cents a year, for two years and then tie it to inflation.

She would decrease small business taxes from 4.5 per cent to three percent by 2016. It would cost the province $90 million a year.

    Hudak wants you to have more money in your wallet.
    Horvath, as she has demonstrated by supporting the Liberals and her NDP party, will lighten your wallet.

    You choose!

    Tim Hudak is going to provide One Million new part time, or temporary no benefits jobs for Ontario residents so they can piece together 40 hours a week of part time wages.

    You go Tim!
    (Maybe we should make all politicians jobs part timer positions with no benefits.)

      @Alex And the liberals are going to provide, once again, broken campaign promises, massive increased public expenditure (not because they like the public, mind you, but because they like your gullible votes), corruption, upward out of control debt... oh, and lies. Lots of them. So, business as usual.

      You go fiberals!

    How can any in there rt. mind vote for the Liberals!!
    Ontario is almost 5 times the debt per capital(i.e.$20,000per person) debt as Callifornia.Which has the worst debt of any state!
    If we don't get rid of the Liberals we will end up like Greece!!

    I'm moving to Alberta if the PC'S are not elected!At least can get some decent health care there and a job!!
