Candidacy campaign platform. Address during the final week of the provincial election campaign. How a Liberal government would expand opportunity, help the private sector to create jobs, and protect vital services such as health care. Choosing between two very different visions and two very different plans for Ontario: between Liberal and Conservative governments. The Liberal plan of balance that gets "our financial house in order while protecting vital services, a balance that starts tearing down the tax wall, without tearing away our economic future." A focus on creating jobs. A 5% tax cut. Comments on the Conservative plan. Evolution, rather than revolution. The kind of government the speaker feels Ontario needs, and how the Liberals will provide it.
