Wynne warns NDP government could mean indefinite strikes

Doug Ford

She continues to explain that Ford will be committed to "fixing Ontario's finances, creating jobs, improving health care and services, and getting our taxes and hydro bills under control".

Facing a barrage of poor polling numbers for her Ontario Liberals, a subdued Kathleen Wynne said on Friday she would keep doing what she can to push her party's accomplishments in government.

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).

"I'd say she lives in a glass house and she should stop throwing the stones".

If re-elected June 7, Liberals plan to increase NOHFC funding to $150 million a year by 2020-21.

"The whole issue of the concerns around breaches of a process that should be fair and should be open and democratic worries me", Wynne said. "Right now, we don't have the same commitment from every party in this election". "It's probably fuelled the NDP vote (and) it probably takes the Liberals out of the equation". "I think the drop that we are seeing is people are not sure anymore if Doug Ford is really.the person that can deliver what they're looking for". "I just categorically disagree with that". "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". "People are listening to the slogans Doug Ford is putting out, and they're inferring what it might mean in terms of cuts".

"We went into this election understanding this was going to be a tough election for us", she said.

In his first public appearance since the National Post broke the story that Ford paid for memberships for new members - contrary to party rules - Ford denied the claims made by a former top party official and a party member who was present at the 2016 vote.

She also had high praise for Sudbury MPP Glenn Thibeault, who emerged from the Sudbury byelection scandal to become energy minister. "I believe in supporting the individual in the riding that is dedicated and commits themselves to the people, Charles Sousa represents that".
