Wynne’s about-face on transit taxes not credible: Harris

March 13, 2014

KITCHENER – Premier Kathleen Wynne’s about-face on transit taxes today is simply not credible given the Liberals’ long track-record of broken promises on taxes, Kitchener-Conestoga MPP Michael Harris said today.

“The Liberal tax-and-spend record of the last decade is quite clear. They promise one thing as an election approaches, then do the opposite afterwards. The Health Premium tax is a prime example,” Harris said.

Harris made these comments following news that Premier Wynne is desperately backing away from new taxes for Ontarians as part of her Toronto transit scheme.

“Whether it’s transit or the economy, this government has proven they have no plan. Their sole focus is on doing whatever it takes to stay in power,” Harris said. “Tim Hudak and the Ontario PCs are the only party with a plan to retain and create more jobs across the province,” Harris said. “It’s time for leadership that will actually deliver.”
