She also pushed back at her rivals while speaking at Seneca College in Toronto, saying they had more than two decades between them to make things better for Ontario families and failed to do so. "Absolutely not", Wynne said at a campaign stop on Toronto's waterfront.

The poll done by this firm shows that the number of voters wanting change in this election has only ever grown more and more (with 83 per wanting change, 62 per cent of those surveyed say they definitely want a change in government). "When it comes to June 7 they're either going to vote in a radical NDP.or they can vote for a Doug Ford PC government".

Most polls show Wynne and her Liberals trailing the PCs and the NDP.

During the official launch of Sousa's campaign office, McCallion said "I'm not a party person; I believe in supporting the individual that is committed to supporting the people in the riding".

Doug Ford spoke to the media today in Tillsonburg and said that this happened close to two years ago, went through appeal process. "On June 7 there will be a new premier in the premier's chair".

"But if you look at different areas within the province, there's kind of a different picture emerging", she said, noting the battle within Toronto appears to be between the Liberals and the NDP. Even among Conservative supporters, 59 per cent said Ford had run the best campaign. "It's probably fuelled the NDP vote (and) it probably takes the Liberals out of the equation". The video ends with McCallion saying Doug will be "the people's premier".


There is also a split in the voting intentions between age groups, with those 18 to 44 years old opting for the NDP and those over 45 preferring the PCs.

The Liberals began the day Tuesday by attacking what they call an "irrational" plan by the NDP to start decommissioning the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station this year.

Horwath said Ontario, "needs to ask the rich to help us pay to make sure that our loved ones have dignified quality of care and access to the long-term care beds they need".

There is also the recent developments of an alleged data hack at the 407 ETR which resulted in the compromised information of some 60,000 customers, and revelations that nearly 30 separate Tory candidates could have benefited from that information in their nomination contest or fundraising efforts.

"I've been pretty transparent on every item that we've announced", he said.

The Liberals are also continuing to hammer the NDP on their platform funding, after Horwath admitted over the weekend that an error would leave them with a deficit that's $1.4 billion larger than originally planned.
