Kathleen Wynne concedes as Ontario Liberals trail NDP, PCs in polls

Kathleen Wynne concedes as Ontario Liberals trail NDP, PCs in polls

Wynne herself, in a postmortem interview with Cynthia Mulligan of CityNews, said that she would stay on as MPP for her riding of Don Valley West if she wins it.

"As far as I know we're not, but we've got six days to go", she said. A vote for the Liberal Party is your best bet to make sure that the next government is not a majority government.

"On the one end of the spectrum, you have Doug Ford - he's expressed his admiration for (U.S. President) Donald Trump, despite the chaos, the uncertainty that the Trump administration has caused Ontario", Wynne said. And I will fight for them.

The first-time candidate says a huge weight has been lifted off his shoulders, now that the Premier has helped shift the focus of the campaign to stopping a majority government from being elected.

The latest polls show Ford tracking toward a majority government, although the Ontario NDP under Andrea Horwath have a slightly larger share of the popular vote and momentum.

"I believed we had a good shot at this ... I don't think we can actually say that", Wynne said.

"It became clear - and she conceded [that] - that she can not win the election". "They don't trust the choices he would make".

Naqvi, who has represented the riding since 2007 and most recently served as the province's attorney general, called her remarks courageous.

"People worry that the NDP will raise taxes on small businesses, that they will push job creation lower", the premier said in her remarks.

Boston's all I know. "We can't think about 'what could have been.' But when Kyrie is on our team, we're at another level". Nobody is irreplaceable, but Marcus is certainly a player that has been big for us over the last few years".

The overall feeling in Ontario seems to be "time for a change".

Ford had little to say about the announcement, noting only that the election is about change and people are fed up.

Using digital media ads in Punjabi, Chinese and Urdu, Kathleen Wynne's party is drawing attention to a 2013 Globe and Mail story in which 10 anonymous sources alleged the Progressive Conservative leader was a hashish dealer in Etobicoke in the 1980s.

"I mean, it must have been a very hard for her to talk about [how] there will be a new government on June 7". "But this news doesn't change the fact that it's always been a change election here in Essex". The leaders of the Liberals and the NDP meet with members of the press and answer questions as they are asked; each leader is accompanied by a press bus as they campaign around the province, so that the public can be made aware of every step, every promise.

Surviving a leadership review in November 2014, Horwath came into the current campaign knowing this would be her last election as leader if she couldn't improve the party's fortunes.

"Now, a vote for Kathleen Wynne and a vote for Doug Ford mean the same thing".

"They're for the working people".

As Premier, I've tried to dedicate myself to fighting for those people. "And that's important to me", Stockdale said after attending a Horwath rally in Kitchener, Ont., this week.

The Liberals, after years of cuts (usually called "funding freezes" but meaning "less money") to medicine and education, infrastructure, and overall services have suddenly discovered their compassionate inner selves: over the past year, the cash is flowing freely into many hitherto-overlooked or underfunded areas - education, health care, pharmacare, infrastructure.
