It is the final day of campaigning ahead of Thursday’s Ontario election.
And Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca says the incumbent Progressive Conservatives want to pretend the election was over before the campaign even started, but he says that’s not what he’s hearing.
“The conversations I’m having with people right now everywhere across Ontario, the crowds that I’m seeing at everyone of my stops, that tells me that Ontarians are going to burst Doug Ford’s bubble Thursday night and we’re looking forward to seeing that happen, and we’re just going to keep working as hard as we possibly can” Del Duca said on Tuesday.
“I would be very careful about making predictions about what’s going to happen on Thursday,” quipped former Ontario NDP Leader Howard Hampton while on Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back with Libby Znaimer, “This is going to boil down to riding upon riding battles. So you might have places where a party racks up a huge victory, for example in a rural riding and so the percentage of their vote is very high, but in other ridings they lose seats by very small margins.”
And where will the leaders focus their efforts on the last day?
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is mostly in Brampton and Toronto with healthcare the focus of her visits.
Doug Ford will be door knocking in Brampton Centre and Mississauga East-Cooksville, then will hold an evening rally at the Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto’s northwest end.
Steven Del Duca plans to spend the day in Toronto.
Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner will be in southwestern Ontario.
