Hudak promises lower business taxes if elected as Ontario premier

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak kicked off his first week of campaigning with a stop at a recording studio west of Toronto.

He says he wants to help businesses grow and create jobs, but wouldn’t say if he supports grants to Ontario’s music industry.

The Liberals say he voted against last year’s budget, which created the Ontario Music Fund.

Hudak has made in clear in recent months that he opposes what he calls “corporate welfare.”

He says he’d rather lower business taxes to spur job creation than give them government handouts.

Gil Moore, who runs MetalWorks, says he supports the fund but also likes Hudak’s ideas to support businesses.
