Ontario PC Team is Ready to Govern

While Liberals favour insiders, and NDP answer to special interests – only the Ontario PC Team will fight for the people

Doug Ford today joined a team of candidates from across Eastern Ontario to share how an Ontario PC Government will hit the ground running if entrusted with government on June 7.

“Our all-star team around me here is ready to step up and govern right away,” said Ford. “And we are the only team that has a modest and responsible plan that will deliver real results for the people.”

Ford contrasted the strength of the Ontario PC team to the disastrous record of the Kathleen Wynne Liberals and the risky radical agenda of the NDP.

“Under the Liberals, your hydro rates have more than doubled, 300,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost and Ontario’s debt has doubled, all while a parade of Liberal friends and insiders got rich,” said Ford. “As for the NDP, their candidates have a long history of slandering our veterans and our police, accusing our soldiers of war crimes, and plotting to impose a 35 cent per litre carbon tax. The NDP are where radical politics meet bad policies. And that would be toxic for jobs.”

Ford also used the roundtable to outline the priorities that a PC government would focus on if elected on June 7.

“Our team is ready to govern and ready to deliver real results for the people,” said Ford. “On June 7, you don’t have to choose between Liberal insiders and NDP special interests. Instead you can vote for the right team, with the right plan to deliver for the people right away.” 

Ontario PC Team is Ready to Govern

Radical NDP candidates will endanger jobs, economy and public safety
With the June 7 Ontario Election just days away, Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford today discussed how the PC team of all star candidates will be ready to govern on day one.

“We have a team that is ready to govern,” said Ford. “Our candidates include public servants, including majors and cabinet ministers with decades of experience, small business people, teachers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, journalists, police officers, veterans and reservists — all of whom are continuing their public service in a new arena.”


Ford contrasted the Ontario PC all-star team to the slate of candidates being offered by the NDP.  To date the NDP has enabled multiple candidates with offensive and radical views that include histories of anti-Semitism, accusing the men and women of the Canadian forces of war crimes, calling for a 35 cent per litre carbon tax, multiple arrests for crimes like sabotage and publicly taunting local police with profanity and racial slurs.

“Andrea Horwath has had weeks to hold her candidates accountable. She has had weeks to demand a higher standard.  She has had weeks to demonstrate her party has changed for the better,” said Ford. “Instead, Ms. Horwath continues to coddle and indulge the extremists and radicals in her party.  But if the NDP leader is not prepared to stand up against extremism now, why would anyone think she will do so as Premier?”

“Only our Ontario PC team is qualified and credible, and we have a plan for the people,” Ford said. “We’re going cut gas prices by 10 cents a litre, reduce middle class income taxes by 20 per cent, cut your hydro bills by 12 per cent and give minimum wage earners and working parents a break. Our team will cut red tape and create good jobs, restore accountability to government, and make an unprecedented investment in health care, long-term care and mental health.”

“Our team is ready to create new and better jobs, put more money in your pocket, improve health care and education, and ensure safer streets,” said Ford. “On June 7, we are asking for your vote. Change is coming and help is on the way.”
