Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak stressed his softer side Tuesday with a pledge to help the disabled and disadvantaged realize their potential in the workforce.
At a campaign stop in Richmond Hill, Hudak said his plan would deliver jobs for those who currently struggle to find work.
“Who’s closest to my heart? Those who are falling through the cracks today, those with disabilities, the disadvantaged, young people graduating from school with a lot of energy and hope but no job. That’s who I’m going to fight for every day,” Hudak said.
Hudak noted that 20 unions, many of them representing public sector workers, have joined with his political challengers in a barrage of negative messages about him and his party in the lead up to the June 12 vote.
His opponents would have voters believe that the sky would fall if the PCs gain government, he suggested.
