Emerson speaks against Conservatives
On Jan 23, 2005, Mr. Emerson stated in Parliament that he agreed with Buzz Hargrove stating, "We've already tried Harper's vision: cut taxes and wait for the jobs to come flowing in. It doesn't work". He also stated that auto worker's jobs and the future of their communities are at risk with a Harper victory.
On Nov. 22, 2005, Mr. Emerson stated in Parliamanet, "the hon. member should have the courage to stand in the House and tell his constituents that if the Conservatives were in government today, there would not be $5 billion of investments in the automotive industry in Ontario. Oshawa and the workers in Oshawa would be in serious trouble". He also stated, "She should explain to her constituents that the auto industry would collapse under a Conservative government"
On Emerson's election web site: he states that he got "$633 million for child care and early childhood development". Is this not the same program Harper has promised to get rid of and in return give parents $1200? What way will Emerson vote on the $1200 to parents?
