Mike Harris left office 12 years ago - yes, 12 YEARS AGO - yet Kathleen Wynne's Liberals are still attacking him in a desperate attempt to paint Hudak as the new Harris.
The Liberals claim Hudak's One Million Jobs Plan is "the same empty promise", the same story "we've seen before."
Wow. Just wow. Give it a rest already.

Ontario's skyrocketing debt and massive deficit budgets is just one of the many issues discussed in my new book Liars: The McGuinty-Wynne Record. Get your copy here!
The Working Families Coalition - er, sorry - Working Families Ontario have released their first attack ad, and guess what, it's anti-conservative.
Working Families have only recently been exposed for what they are - an anti-conservative front group - but they have been behind every Ontario election since 2003, vowing to never let another conservative get into office.
While they're not officially connected to the Liberal Party, their campaigns by former and connected Liberal staffers have criticized the Progressive Conservative Party to the benefit of the Liberals.
Their first ad for the 2014 Ontario election is above, and it's, well, peculiar.
It claims Hudak's party has been "misleading voters" because their Million Jobs Plan uses "voodoo math" to "manipulate voters."
Strong claims, right? But these aren't the words of the Working Families, but rather selective quotes from one columnist from one article in the St. Catharines Standard. Here's the article, in which Grant LaFleche makes the complaints Working Families is now repeating.
Note that this is not an attack on the author of the article. I just find it peculiar that the Working Families would quote one columnist from one publication as the source for their first attack ad.
The Working Families Coalition is just one of the many topics discussed in my new book Liars: The McGuinty-Wynne Record. Every Ontario voter needs a copy. Get your copy today!
“Dickin's book tells the real story of the financial disaster that Dalton McGuinty and Kathleen Wynne's governments have been. They have padded the pockets of their friends at the expense of taxpayers. They have dragged Ontario through endless fiascoes, whether it's eHealth, Ornge, OLG, or reckless and expensive experiments with “green energy.” They have caused Ontario's credit rating to be lowered time and time again. Their financial record is one of shame, leaving the crushing burden of thousands of dollars per person of debt and waseful Liberal experiments to be paid off by the next generation of Ontarians.”

Ever since this post, I've been waiting to hear back from the Ontario Public Service about their additional figures on part-time and contract-based employees. Just releasing "full time equivalent" employee numbers does not accurately show the size of Ontario's public sector, nor does it show trends over time (for example, if the use of contracted employees has increased).
Now with Tim Hudak announcing he would lay off 100,000 Ontario civil servants, questions are being raised about how much of a cut this would be.
And the answer to those questions is that we simply don't know. How many employees are working on contracts? How many are part-time? How many are full-time? These are three common and reasonable classifications of employees that should be answered. The federal government has very clear data on the demographics of their employees, including rank (pay grade) and whether they're indeterminate (full time), contract-based, or students.
When I asked the Ontario Public Service for a response, after three weeks of prompting, the answer I finally got was that they did "not have data (neither current nor historical) on the numbers of positions in either agencies of the public service, nor the broader Ontario public sector."
How can the Ontario government not have such basic information?
