Selective Memory

Sure, Dalton McGuinty is really concerned about out of control corporations like Caterpillar that abscond with jobs in Ontario. Just read this article from 2008:

As a shortage of skilled labour threatens to engulf Ontario's economy, the McGuinty government is facing pointed questions about why it has given call centre workers apprenticeship status along with millions of dollars in training support.

Controversy is growing now because of Dell Computer Corp.'s decision to close its Ottawa call centre. Dell collected tax incentives of up to 25 per cent of the salaries it was paying to its 1,700 Ottawa workers -- worth more than $11 million.

I'm sorry, Dalton.......what were you saying about protecting Ontario jobs?

  1. to protect jobs we have to be competetive. we should not be giving any company tax dollars to hire people. give companies tax breaks if necessary but no cash.
