Finance Minister Joe Oliver took to Toronto on Saturday trying to discourage voters from throwing support behind the Liberals.
Oliver zoned in on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government as something of a warning against Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, saying “It’s very clear that Justin Trudeau is tied to the provincial Liberal party and to Kathryn Wynne’s policies,,, So we have an insight, a look at what type of government, what type of economic policies he would pursue,” Oliver said.
“We’ve seen the consequences of a Liberal government here in Ontario: massive tax hikes, out of control spending, sky-high hydro bills, business closures. We don’t want that to happen across the country.” Oliver continued
Oliver zoned in on the Wynne pension plan specifically, saying it will negatively affect job creation and growth if it were to be implemented across the country.
With just nine days left before the federal election, candidates are pulling out all the stops amid the opening of advance polling stations.
The latest poll, conducted by Nanos Research for the Globe and Mail, showed the Liberals had a strong lead.
