Hudak Rhymes with Fear Merchant

I can't help but think that Tim Hudak knows he's behind the eight ball in this race and is therefore grasping at anything that may improve his chances. Fair enough I suppose. It's what many politicians do, but to deliberately deceive, lie to be frank, and push a xenophobic message? Well, yes, that is what he is up to in my opinion.

See for yourself.

There is not an ounce of truth in that ad.

Money is not going to workers, let alone foreign workers, in fact what McGuinty is proposing is a tax credit to businesses that hire immigrants, for a year, in an effort to provide them with work experience so they may pursue their intended career in Canada. This program applies to Canadian citizens, (of at least 5 yrs) and residents of Ontario. So, you know, people who we've appealed to, to immigrate here. People we have selected in an effort to build our work force and economy. Engineers, accountants, etc. who are now, wait for it, Ontarians!

It's frankly disgusting to me that Hudak is suggesting that this program is somehow taking anything away from anyone. It's not. And, oh by the way, do you know how many other similar programs exist to help ALL Ontarians? The cost for those programs is in the billions for the record. This is just another program designed to get people into jobs they qualify for, rather than the oft lamented 'doctors working as cabbies'.

But wait. It doesn't stop there. The calm, reasoned voice of Dean Del Mastro, on behalf of the Federal Conservatives has also weighed in.

As a "young white male" at the time, Mr. Del Mastro said jobs were few and far between as a result. "And here we go again, " he said.

Yeah, he actually said that. Between the two of them, (Hudak and Del Mastro as Harper's rep) it's pretty tough to come to any other conclusion than they are pandering to some pretty ugly views held by some.

Oh, and if you have a sweet tooth and are looking for the icing on the cake? As it happens, Hudak himself proposed a PMB (private members bill) essentially outlining what McGuinty and the Liberals have as their plank.

Isn't that a kick in the head? One strong enough to have you spell hypocrisy, H U D A K.
