A Progressive Conservative government would introduce a budget and call a judicial inquiry into the cancelled gas plants within its first 100 days of office, Leader Tim Hudak said Friday.

An immediate government hiring freeze is also on the to-do list, he said.

“It’s particularly important to take decisive action,” Hudak said. “The new job numbers tell us that we need to take a very different course. What should be up is down, what should be down is up.”
