Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne at a townhall meeting in Windsor, February 15, 2018.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne acknowledged not only that the election is lost, but that she won't be premier after June 7 and encouraged voters to ensure an NDP or PC minority government, on Saturday. "And what I am saying to all voters is, if you're interested in having that positive, hopeful future, then please consider joining us", Horwath said during a campaign stop in Don Valley West. On Thursday, Ms. Wynne told reporters that she did not recall the situation: "I don't recall a contentious exchange with Glen Murray, I just don't recall", she said. She has got guts to show her face on TV and say she is proud of what the Liberals have accomplished, knowing she has dug a financial hole so deep our great-grandchildren won't be able to get out of it.

Ontario Steelworkers are proud to endorse Andrea Horwath and the NDP as the best choice in the June 7 election.

Doug Ford is applying for the job of Premier of Ontario, but yesterday team Ford revealed they won't share any details of what he would actually do as Premier.

Hoggarth welcomes Wynne's decision to put the spotlight on her candidates, and says she wants to make sure the next government doesn't undo the things she has accomplished over the last four years.

The move did not sit well with NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who accused Wynne of "playing a unsafe game" that could propel the Tories to a majority.

"But you know it's still not too late for me to be swayed one way or the other as well", Benoit said - although he added he would only consider switching his vote to the NDP.

But women fought to get the right to vote.

Liberals say that now their focus is on trying to maintain official party status in the legislature, which requires at least eight seats. The Conservative party and Green Party had not commented on working with scale-ups at the time of the report's release.

Lastman, who served as the high-profile Toronto mayor for two terms starting in 1998, said he trusts Ford to make life more affordable for average citizens and to return Ontario to its position as the economic powerhouse of Canada.

Myer Siemiatycki, a politics professor at Ryerson University, said polling suggests a shift to the NDP away from the Liberals began unusually early this campaign given the "fear factor" around the Tories, who've been criticized for not detailing how they'd pay for their campaign promises.

"What's really remarkable this time is that within about two days of this campaign starting, that decision had more or less been made - that it was quite clear that it was going to be the NDP against the Conservatives".

"People worry about what will happen to our economy if the NDP form a majority government with nothing to hold them back".
