OFL Says Tory Job Cut Plan Will Hurt Kenora

The Ontario Federation of Labour says the Progressive Conservatives campaign promise to eliminate thousands of public sector jobs will have a devastating effect in northwestern Ontario.

Leader Tim Hudak wants to reduce the workforce by at least 100-thousand.

A federation study says that could mean 339 job losses in Kenora.

The O-F-L study did not look at the impact in the region's smaller communities.
