Nita Kang Nominated as Ontario PC Candidate for Scarborough Southwest:
“Let’s Rebuild Our Economic Engine and Create Jobs”
Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak congratulated Nita Kang on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Scarborough Southwest. Hudak applauded and thanked Kang for her unwavering commitment to reducing the size and cost of government and kick-starting the economy to create private-sector jobs.
“Nita understands what government must do to make Ontario a better place for families and job creation,” said Hudak. “While the current government continues to deepen Ontario’s economic crisis, the Ontario PC Party is promoting solutions to create new jobs and rein in government spending.”
“Better days are ahead for Ontario, but only if we get our fiscal house in order and our economic fundamentals back in line in the face of an ongoing jobs crisis,” said Kang. “Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party have been ahead of the curve on the economy from the start. Ontario’s unemployment numbers have been higher than the national average for six years, and our Party is the only one talking seriously about how we get private sector job growth back on track.”
Kang noted several specific Ontario PC plans for private sector job growth including:
- Balancing the budget to encourage businesses to expand and hire
- Lowering taxes to expand economic activity
- Treating affordable energy as a cornerstone of economic growth
- Breaking traffic gridlock in the GTA
- More skilled trades jobs by modernizing the apprenticeship system.
Kang works in real estate and served as the managing director of the Toronto Taxpayers Coalition.
