Dalton McGuinty is demanding Tim Hudak apologize for deriding a Liberal plan to help new Canadian professionals as a perk for “foreign workers” or “foreigners.” ... Vic Gupta, the Tory candidate in Richmond Hill, said his party has nothing to apologize for because the scheme is an “insulting” example of “affirmative action.”
Hudak, however, is not backing away from his choice of words.
“We’ve lost so many jobs. This notion that the Liberals had an idea that to pay $10,000 to a company to hire foreign workers ahead of anyone else . . . well, no matter how you cut it, it is an affirmative action program that is unequal and unfair and I stand against it,” the PC leader said in Hamilton.
