Statement from Ontario PC Interim Leader Vic Fedeli on Buy American

“Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals are responsible for Ontario losing its competitive advantage to the United States. Whether it’s skyrocketing hydro rates, the cap-and-trade cash grab, suffocating red tape, or exorbitant taxes, Ontario is plain and simple no longer open for business.

“Initiating a trade war with the United States is a last-ditch election ploy by Kathleen Wynne to deflect the blame for her disastrous economic policies.

“As the Mayor of North Bay, I successfully led the charge against Buy American policies with a mayor to mayor plea. But, the Premier using this as a political tool to cling to power is nothing short of reckless, especially during this critical time in the NAFTA negotiations.

“The Ontario PCs will review and consider the legislation when it comes forward.”
