COBOURG, Ont. - Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak stopped in at a plastics manufacturing plant today that has benefited from government grants.

However, Hudak says lower taxes and power rates would be of more use than government handouts.

Campaigning at the factory in Cobourg east of Toronto, Hudak again touted his plan to create jobs in Ontario.

He accused Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne of failing to understand how the "real economy" works.

If elected June 12, Hudak is pledging to create a half-a-million new jobs over eight years by cutting taxes and energy rates. That would be in addition to the half-million jobs the economy would already create.

He's also promising to slash the public service by 100,000 jobs.
