Wynne claims Hudak would "destroy" the auto sector
Leaders talk manufacturing, education on the campaign trail
22 0

The teeth are coming out when it comes to manufacturing in Ontario.

Outside of Windsor, Premier Kathleen Wynne says a Tory government wouldn't value the auto sector as much as hers. She says if the auto industry plummets, the province's economy will go into the ditch.

Earlier in the year, Tory leader Tim Hudak attacked a government grant for Chrysler, which the company ultimately rejected, going with their own funding. And while Hudak criticizes what he calls corporate welfare again, he popped up at another plant - in Cobourg - which received provincial funding.

Hudak brushes that aside, vowing to help businesses by lowering taxes and hydro rates.

In Brampton, NDP leader Andrea Horwath says the provincial government needs to expand opportunity in the auto sector.

She says Ontario should sit down with companies to see what other jurisdictions offer them as incentives and see what the province can offer.

Horwath spoke about her 'Open Schools' fund which would give money to schools in need of help with extra curricular activities and renovations.
