The Ontario Liberals under Dalton McGuinty have not done enough to earn the support of working families. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak has made it clear that a government under his leadership would further deregulate the economy and privatize public services.

CUPE Ontario is actively encouraging its members to support the NDP in the October 6 provincial election.
