MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak is promising to get rid of a gas-fired power plant west of Toronto just one day before Ontario voters head to the polls.

Premier Dalton McGuinty promised during the campaign to move the plant that local residents say will devalue their homes and reduce air quality.

Hudak took reporters and supporters to a parking lot near the site to show that construction is still going on despite the Liberal leader's pledge.

Calling it a "living, breathing example" of McGuinty's broken promises, Hudak vowed to get rid of the plant in Mississauga if his party forms the next government.

Hudak has repeatedly derided McGuinty for promising to pull the plug on the plant less than two weeks before Thursday's election, calling it a flip-flop.

Recent polls indicate the Liberals have a healthy lead, while others suggest that Ontario could be facing its first minority government in 26 years.
