Our labour laws and labour-related government agencies aremaking it harder and harder to hire and retain employees in tough economic times. Lack of financial transparency of the large unions diminishes workers’ and employers’ con- fidence in the very institution that should act as a trustworthy advocate.” McDonell concludes: “Dalton McGuinty’s answer to any issue is more government, more top-down manage- ment, more costs, more red tape, more intrusion where Government shouldn’t meddle. For instance, employers with private insurance plans have to pay increased premiums into a WSIB already in the hole for 14.5 billion, and a nightmare to deal with. The Ontario PC Flexible Labour Markets white paper is about more than mere changes in legislation. It is a change in attitude towards employers and employees in this Province, and the time for this change is now.”

Jim McDonell says the Ontario Progressive Conservative Flexible Labour Markets white paper “takes Ontario’s outdated labour laws into the 21 st century.” He states: “Our current system creates a paradox where an employee has two bosses: one paying the salary and the other taking it to spend through a system that lacks transparency.” Ontario’s rigid labour laws have severe economic consequences for all Ontarians, McDonell continues. “Our unionisation framework has led to a closed tendering system where pu- blic projects lose their focus on the outcome and the taxpayer. Process - and the payment it brings - becomes the sole concern. This must stop, Ontario cannot afford it and Ontarians are fed up with Government waste. Our youth are prevented from entering the skilled trades by regulations designed to protect big-union shops that hate competition – despite a looming 1-million skilled tradesmen shortage.” “The Ontario PC white paper, when
