Final weekend of campaign gets underway ahead of election day on Thursday

"People have rejected Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals", she said after a rally in downtown Toronto.

Ontario Steelworkers are proud to endorse Andrea Horwath and the NDP as the best choice in the June 7 election. I don't know who voters will choose but I am pretty sure that it won't be me.

"As we get closer and closer to Thursday, it's becoming very apparent that the new premier is either going to be Mr Ford or me. And I'm okay with that", she said.

Provincial support could take the form of worker training or education, but the Liberal party is still figuring out how to best support the industry if the tariffs persist, Ms. Wynne said.

Wynne began her day today in Richmond Hill, Ont., where she is trying to help Liberal Reza Moridi get re-elected, and was also campaigning in Scarborough North, Toronto-St.

"It is a logical next step", she said. "(Horwath) gives me hope that she's going to change that". Some polls show the projected Liberal seat count is so low that the party is in danger of losing its official status at Queen's Park.

Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath called Wynne's decision "a unsafe game", in a statement that also read: "Kathleen Wynne has abandoned the fight against Doug Ford cuts".

The NDP leader is making her strong push for Liberal ridings with less than a week left in the campaign.

The Council of Canadian Innovators has released a document outlining the positions of Ontario's four major political party leaders when it comes to scaling up tech companies. "She put aside her own personal interests for the good of the people of Ontario". Many who are eligible to vote in this election were not yet in kindergarten the last time the government changed.

So, for the next few days I will campaign hard to elect as many Liberals as possible.

"They're going to be choosing a person to lead them who will be in some very tricky, very delicate negotiations with USA officials", Wynne said. In 2018, the NDP has the most popular leader in the province (who also has solid experience in and out of politics), and it also has a fully costed platform which addresses every one of the issues described above - health care including mental health care, gas prices, public transportation, hydro costs, education and more.

Doug Ford wants Ontario municipalities to have the same kind of strong-mayor system as many big cities in the US, saying a more powerful chief magistrate would be preferable to the "free-for-all" of current councils. By voting Liberal you can keep the next government, Conservative or NDP, accountable to you.

Lalonde said she still hoped to return to Queen's Park after Thursday, even though her chances of remaining in cabinet are all but quashed.

Brenda Stockdale, 54, a Cambridge, Ont., resident, might be one of those anti-Ford voters the Liberals have traditionally won over, but not this time.
