Vote for positive change on Oct. 6, says CUPE Ontario

Ontarians deserve better, so let's vote better-let's vote NDP, Says Hahn

HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2011) - Voting for the New Democratic Party on Oct. 6 is the best way to build a better and more inclusive province, CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn said today.

"We know that positive change only happens when people vote for what they really want," Hahn said at a media conference in Hamilton today. "And most Ontarians really want a government that brings fairness to the economy and builds quality public services that strengthen our communities."

The NDP is the best bet for working families, said Hahn. He noted that the NDP under leader Andrea Horwath is the only party promising to reverse unfair corporate tax giveaways. He added that the NDP is a lone voice promoting "Buy Ontario" policies that would spur much-needed local and long-term economic growth.

"Ontarians need a government that will put our own economic interests ahead of foreign corporations and investors," said Hahn. "Only the NDP has promised to strengthen local economies, protect workers and advance an inclusive vision for the economy. Ontarians deserve better, so let's vote better – let's vote NDP."

Hahn was joined today by Monique Taylor, NDP candidate for Hamilton Mountain, underscoring CUPE Ontario's commitment to supporting the NDP on Oct. 6.

"CUPE Ontario is proud to encourage its members and all Ontarians to support the NDP in the October 6 provincial election," Hahn said. "In Hamilton Mountain, this means supporting Monique Taylor."
