I’m offering an endorsement of what Mr. McGuinty has done, absolutely. This is a great plan. Any party would be foolish to talk about abandoning it"

That's what David Suzuki had to say about the Ontario Liberal plan to keep Ontario's economy on track by creating green jobs and helping our environment.

“I don’t get it, because it’s a job creator — I would have thought that the Conservatives would be banging away at the need to create jobs,” the host of CBC’s The Nature of Things said during a stroll with McGuinty in Stanley Park on Wednesday.

“Ontario right now is a leader in North America. Why would anybody come in and throw that out the window? It doesn't make any sense.”

The big thing to me is the Green Energy Act,” said Suzuki.

“It has created jobs. For me it says we’ve got a future that’s bright with job creation and we can drop our dependence on fossil fuels.”

Ontario NDP vs. the environment

Hard hitting piece from the David Suzuki foundation on the NDP playing political games with the environment:

"the NDP allowed politics to rule over good policy...the NDP platform mentions a home retrofit program that targets energy efficiency. The cost of that program? Who knows?...What about new investment in building transit infrastructure that builds on Ontario's existing transit plan? Not in there."

With Ontario's economy turning the corning and creating jobs while helping the environment, it is disappointing that the NDP would scheme with Tim Hudak to kill Ontario jobs.
