Hudak vows to cut 100,000 public sector jobs

An Ontario PC government would shrink the public payroll by 10% — 100,000 jobs, party leader Tim Hudak says.

The job cuts would return government to the size it was in 2009, the Tories said Friday.

“Vital” frontline service providers such as nurses, doctors and police would not be touched.

Some jobs will transfer to the private sector as the government gets out of certain activities, the PCs say.

Many positions will not be filled when people retire.

Hudak is proposing to balance the province’s books
