Sudbury Liberal candidate Andrew Olivier has said in a release voters will have a choice between job cuts and job growth on June 12.

“Sudbury has momentum right now and we can’t afford to lose it,” Olivier said in a release. “Our citizens are counting on us. Our seniors are counting on us. Our business leaders are counting on us. And, our children are counting on us. Our plan is to grow and improve Sudbury.”

Olivier said Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak's plan to cut 100,000 public service jobs could impact at least 1,000 people in Sudbury.

Olivier said the Liberals would promote growth in the north with plans to invest millions into the four-laning of Highway 69 and $1 billion to build infrastructure to the Ring of Fire deposit.

“We are talking about the largest mineral deposit since the Sudbury Basin,” he said. “This could be great news for Sudbury and our mining supply and service sector. And, it is a major step toward getting the chromite processing facility and all the high paying jobs that go with it. The spinoff effects for the Sudbury economy would be unbelievable. The NDP and Conservatives said no to that.”

Olivier said the election is a two-party race between the Liberals and Progressive Conservatives.

“We can’t afford to have an MPP who is with the third party,” Olivier said, referring to the NDP.
