Hudak makes final pitch for supporters on election day
TORONTO – Tory Leader Tim Hudak made one final pitch for voter support today, standing in front of an airplane at Pearson Airport to say he’d help create jobs in Ontario so young people don’t have to fly to Alberta for work.
Hudak says he’s smiling today because he’s happy with the campaign he’s run, giving people a clear choice between Liberals who will keep racking up debt and his plan to cut the cost and size of government.

He says the 1.1-billion-dollar Liberal gas plant scandal shows the Liberals put their own interests ahead of those of taxpayers.
But he adds he’d rather focus on a positive message about creating one million jobs over eight years.
The Progressive Conservative leader says he was disappointed that Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals mounted what he calls a “campaign of fear.”

But he says he believes his message of hope will trump their negativity.
Hudak voted at an advance poll earlier in the campaign and will wait for the election results tonight in Grimsby in his riding of Niagara West-Glanbrook.
