11. Resuming the debate adjourned on October 23, 2008 on the amendment to the amendment to the motion by Mr. McGuinty to acknowledge the economic challenges facing the province and continuing to implement an economic plan, as follows:-

Mr. McGuinty moved:-

M. McGuinty propose:-

That the Legislative Assembly of Ontario acknowledges our province faces economic challenges created by the high dollar, high international oil prices, the US economic slowdown, international economic turmoil, and increased global manufacturing competition from China and India especially;

That just as Ontario families do when finances get tight at home, the Ontario government should make adjustments as necessary to its finances while protecting our shared priorities, such as health care, education, the environment and public safety;

That the investments made over the last five years in vital public services and Ontarians’ key priorities like skills training, infrastructure, education, and health care will help Ontario weather the economic challenges in the short term and emerge stronger than ever;

And affirms our strongest possible support for Ontario workers, and families, and for a healthy, growing economy by continuing to implement the five-point economic plan that includes: investing in the skills of our people, making targeted tax cuts, investing in research and innovation, investing in infrastructure, and partnering with businesses, while also expanding trade ties within Canada and internationally and seeking fairness from the federal government for Ontarians.

Mr. Runciman moved:-

M. Runciman propose:-

That the motion be amended as follows:-

Striking out all of the text after “That the Legislative Assembly of Ontario acknowledges” and replacing it with the following:

That, instead of seeking legislative approval to run a deficit and/or raise taxes, the government of Ontario take real action to address the province’s economic crisis;

That the taxpayers of Ontario deserve an immediate and comprehensive financial statement that fully opens up the public books, revealing the true state of everything from government revenues to reserve funds, what savings the government has found, and how it plans to handle any financial shortfalls;

That people who have lost their jobs or are worried about their futures deserve a comprehensive and realistic economic action plan designed to save existing jobs, attract new jobs and investment, and help the unemployed find new work here in Ontario;

That businesses struggling to stay afloat deserve competitive taxes, less red tape, sensible apprenticeship ratios, and a genuine customer service approach that welcomes new investment;

That families working to make ends meet deserve to see their government do what they are doing in tough times – discipline their spending and look for value for money – and that this should be reflected in sensible public sector restraint on hiring and wage increases, especially at the top;

That all Ontarians deserve to see their government provide leadership in this crisis, partnership with other levels of government, and accountability for the areas where it has control; and

That, putting partisan politics aside, all parties in the Ontario legislature should work cooperatively to implement these steps and others that will protect people’s jobs and investments, restore Ontario’s competitiveness, and put our province back on the path to prosperity.

Mr. Prue moved:-

M. Prue propose:-

That the amendment to the motion be amended by adding the following:-

That the government needs to immediately respond to current economic instability, the 230,000 jobs lost in the manufacturing sector, and the 40,000 direct and indirect jobs lost in the forest products industry by implementing a strategy that includes:

– An industrial hydro rate so that Ontario’s manufacturing and resource companies can count on stable, competitive hydro policies at a time when many competing jurisdictions have far lower industrial rates.

– A Jobs Protection Commissioner to help at-risk companies overcome financial difficulties – and save jobs.

– A Buy Ontario policy that would ensure that streetcars, subways, and buses continue to be made right here in Ontario resulting in the protection of thousands of good-paying jobs.

– Tougher plant closure legislation that would ensure that everything is done to prevent a profitable plant or mill from closing and enhanced, mandated severance.

– Expansion of severance eligibility and an increase in advance notice in mass layoff situations.

– Pension and wage protection that would make sure that workers get every penny they are owed from their employer when their company becomes insolvent or goes into bankruptcy.

– And finally, a refundable manufacturing and resource investment tax credit that would provide a real incentive for manufacturers and processors to invest in the building, equipment and machinery that leads to high paying, good quality jobs. (Debated October 8, 9, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22 and 23, 2008.). (Time used: 15 hrs. 40 mins.).
