Tim Hudak has unveiled plans to get Ontario's "beaten down" manufacturing sector back on track.
The Conservative leader's strategy includes balanced budgets, lower taxes, affordable energy and more skilled trades partnerships between industry, colleges and universities.
On the energy front, Hudak stresses that it's time to stop the expensive experiments with wind and solar, which he says are being subsidized at ten times the price of power.
As for balancing the books, he believes "no company is going to invest in a province, state or country that is deep in debt".
Hudak toured ArcelorMittal Dofasco's Hamilton operation after meeting with company officials on Wednesday morning.
Dofasco happens to be Ontario's biggest user of electricity. The Conservative leader worries that it isn't going to be able to compete "if its bills keep going up and up and up".
