Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak is sticking with his promise to cut 100,000 public sector positions even as he faces the possibility of leading a minority government.

“It’s not a matter of balancing the books now or balancing the books three or four years later,” Hudak said. “It’s now or it’s not going to happen. We have to move with some urgency here to actually get spending under control.”

Polling has consistently shown that the province is heading to another minority government, although it’s not clear which party would emerge on top.

All three major political leaders are being peppered with questions about whether they’re willing to enter into a coalition with another party to form government and drive a legislative agenda.
