Sudbury PC candidate Paula Peroni says the fact OPSEU President Warren ‘Smokey’ Thomas praised Tim Hudak and accused Kathleen Wynne of being dishonest shows the truth behind her party's message.

During a TV interview, Thomas described Hudak as “honest and straight forward,” where Wynne is not.

In a release, Peroni said she has been very forthcoming throughout her campaign that “it is time to cut some of the government duplication and bureaucracy, but not reduce front line workers.

“Furthermore, it’s time for the Liberals to stop covering up scandals and spreading untruths.”

Green candidate says voters 'sickened' by partisan attacks


The Green Party of Ontario candidate in Sudbury, Casey Lalonde, said the election antics of both the Liberal and New Democratic parties have recently sunk to new lows in courting the votes of Sudburians.

“People everywhere feel that politics is broken in this province,” Lalonde is quoted as saying in the release. “In Sudbury, we have seen the Liberal Party making very personal attacks against the NDP’s candidate. And we’ve seen the NDP purchase the front page of our daily newspaper, running deceptive ads for the sole purpose of misleading voters. These kinds of partisan games aren’t what Ontario needs right now.”

Voters interested in electing officials who refuse to play these negative and deceptive partisan games are urged to take a close look at the Green Party as an alternative.

“The Green Party wants to see Ontario’s economy strengthen just as much as any other party,” said Lalonde. “The difference is Greens know that a strong economy is dependent on smart, public investment and sustainability.

“So, if you are voting Green, you are not wasting your vote. You’re voting for values you share with a political party that you can trust to inspire the change that is long overdue in this province.”
