Brampton, ON, June 15 – "Playing Politics with Healthcare is not acceptable!"
The provincial election campaign trail has kicked off with the introduction of PC Candidate Pam Hundal to the riding of Bramalea-Gore-Malton by former Premier of Ontario, Honourable Bill Davis. "The cities of Brampton and Mississauga need provincial representation from a qualified candidate like Pam Hundal," exclaimed Mr. Davis.
The gala event held on Thursday, June 14, 2007, was well attended by over 300 members of the community and distinguished guests including MPP Candidate in Brampton West, Mark Beckles, former Councillor Garnett Manning and MPP in Oxford, Ernie Hardeman, who is also Municipal Affairs and Housing Critic for the Official Opposition. The mood was enthusiastic and positive as Pam Hundal addressed the room with her concerns and those of the Ontario PC Party, led by Mr. John Tory, for the riding and the Province of Ontario. Key PC Party platform areas were addressed to the guests such as eliminating the unfair regressive Health tax, committing over 800 million dollars to Education and making the property tax system fair by implementing a 5% cap on annual assessment increases.
"Brampton is where I was born and raised. It's important to me to improve and give the riding of Bramalea-Gore-Malton and its constituents the attention they deserve," said Pam Hundal."Together with John Tory's Plan for a Better Ontario, I will get us that attention."
Pam Hundal continued to point out the shortfalls of the McGuinty government and the many promises that were made but did not delivered upon. "The new BramptonHospital is just one example of a broken Liberal promise. The hospital is not being given the full funding it was promised and without such funding, the Hospital will open with fewer than the 600+ beds it was supposed to have." Pam Hundal has been involved in fundraising initiatives for the Hospital for the past 2 years. She directly questioned the current MPP for the riding, Dr. Kular, asking what he has done to fight for the 600 beds the Hospital was promised. "It is time to give the riding more than a figurehead in government," she concluded. "For a better Ontario, leadership matters!"
