PC leader Tim Hudak sidestepped questions Monday about being compared to former premier Mike Harris.

Hudak, who made a campaign stop at a cabinet-making company in Mississauga, was questioned about Liberal MPP Eric Hoskins’ recent attempt to compare him to Harris, whose controversial Common Sense Revolution sought to cut taxes and axe civil service positions as a way of creating jobs and battling a deficit.

“My campaign is all about jobs, (and) putting people back to work,” Hudak replied when asked if such a comparison is detrimental to his campaign.

“Look, I was proud to be part of a government that actually led North America in job creation,” he added. “I intend to lead a government that will make Ontario lead North American job creation again with 1 million more jobs.”
