Harjit Jaswal Nominated As Ontario PC Candidate For Bramalea-Gore-Malton: "Let's Rebuild Our Economic Engine and Create Jobs"
15 October 2012
Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak congratulated Harjit Jaswal on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Bramalea-Gore-Malton. Hudak applauded and thanked Jaswal for his unwavering focus on reducing the size and cost of government and kick-starting the economy to create private-sector jobs.
“Harjit understands the priorities for a brighter future and knows how to create the private sector jobs that will lead Ontario back to prosperity,” said Hudak. “While the current government continues to deepen Ontario’s economic crisis, the Ontario PC Party is promoting solutions to create new jobs and rein in government spending.”
“I relate to the struggles people face as they seek to establish families and work in our community,” said Jaswal, a real estate broker who immigrated from India. “Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party have made a series of strong, principled proposals that would create hope for the nearly 600,000 unemployed Ontarians and put our province on the path to recovery – which McGuinty continues to ignore as he continues putting Ontario on the road to a $30 billion deficit.”
“It’s the wrong path for Ontario,” stated Jaswal, noting several specific Ontario PC plans for private sector job growth which include:
- Balancing the budget to encourage businesses to expand and hire
- Lowering taxes for job-creating businesses
- Eliminating costly and failed wind and solar subsidies for more affordable energy
- A more flexible and responsive approach to regulation, and
- More skilled trades jobs by modernizing the apprenticeship system.
