Wynne continues to campaign hard despite predicting loss in Ontario election

Wynne continues to campaign hard despite predicting loss in Ontario election

With just five days to go until voters head to the polls in Ontario, Liberal leader - and incumbent premier - Kathleen Wynne has announced she is conceding.

"I mean, it must have been a very hard for her to talk about [how] there will be a new government on June 7". I don't know who voters will choose but I am pretty sure that it won't be me.

Windsor West candidate Rino Bortolin did not expect this kind of announcement from the premier, but he calls it an example of her Ontario-first style of leadership. I was at Queen's Park at the time and actually thought she sounded reasonable, a real moderate.

Marie-France Lalonde called Wynne's comments "honourable" and a clear message that people should still vote for Liberal candidates to prevent the other parties from forming a majority government.

Wynne said Ontario has developed one of the strongest economies in North America under a Liberal government that worked with employees, business leaders, and political leaders on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.

"All of the things that Doug Ford has said would add up to a $40-billion hole and they have no idea how they would find that".

Doug Ford won't say whether he'll march in Toronto's annual Pride parade if he's elected Ontario premier.

Wynne, however, said she'd still be on the campaign trail advocating for candidates in local elections "through until that last vote is cast".

Physically, obviously it's not easy to play, you know, back to back to back five-set matches, but I will manage it somehow. Djokovic, the 2016 French champion and 12-times Grand Slam victor , awaits.

Standing behind a sign reading simply, "Vote Liberal", instead of her usual sign with her campaign slogan of "Care Over Cuts", Wynne said it's important to return as many Liberals as possible to the legislature to avoid having a majority government.

Horwath says she gets a sense that people want change, and after Thursday's election the government will look different than it has in the past two decades. They will fight for your votes.

Wynne says whichever way the vote goes, people should hope for a minority win to keep the government "from acting too extreme - one way or the other".

Omar Khan, a Liberal executive council member, said the party is now working on maintaining official party status. That's because an NDP victory would make the NDP a more credible "progressive alternative" in future elections.

"And the polluters, any companies that decide to pollute, we're going to come down heavy on them, we're going to come down really heavy on them".

At this point, polls show there is less fear of an NDP government than a Tory one and this might push some potential Liberal voters to throw their support behind the New Democrats, he said. A Liberal source told The Canadian Press about a dozen ridings in which the party thinks they have a reasonable shot at winning, but Wynne's own riding was not among them.

With the election roughly a week away, Wynne travelled to the heart of her NDP rival's riding on Wednesday to portray herself as the only seasoned stateswoman in the campaign capable of rising above the ideological fray.
