NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is pouring cold water on an idea that got floated on the weekend and dominated the headlines all day yesterday. She says she will not join forces with the Liberals to form a coalition government if the PC’s end up with only a minority win on June 7th. Horwath says the Liberals have consistently made decisions that were in their own best political interest and helped out their well-connected friends so she will not work team up with them.
Today on the campaign trail:
Today Kathleen Wynne will make announcements in Waterloo and London before visiting a brewery in Guelph. Andrea Horwath is in London and Paris (On) before holding a town hall in Kitchener this evening. Doug Ford is spending the day campaigning in Toronto.
Green Party Releases Platform:
Ontario’s Green party says it’s running a full slate of candidates in next month’s election and that 52 per cent of them are women. The party released its platform yesterday, featuring the promise of a $4.2-billion-dollar program to give grants and loans to businesses and homeowners for energy conservation. Green Leader Mike Schreiner says the party would also ensure that 20 per cent of units in any new housing projects would be affordable housing. The Greens would also commit to a 100 per cent renewable energy supply by 2050.
