If Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives win a minority in the June 7 election, Andrea Horwath is not going to team up with Kathleen Wynne.
”I have no interest whatsoever in partnering up with a party (Liberal) like that. So I’m going to continue running this campaign as I started, which is by saying, ‘New Democrats are in it to win it’, ” said the NDP leader.
Responding to Horwath’s remarks on a possibile coalition, during a stop in Cambridge this afternoon, the Liberal leader said that was not her focus at this point of the campaign.
”Our focus right now is to make it clear to the people of Ontario what it is we (Liberals) are going to invest in. The economy is growing, we have made a lot of progress over the last four years and we want that to continue … We’ll see on June 7th where we are, but that’s really our focus right now on Day 6 in the campaign,” stated Wynne.
Speaking in Niagara Falls, PC Leader Doug Ford said people want change.

”They don’t want the NDP making a backroom deal to prop up the Liberals. They want comprehensive change, and they’re the same. When you look at the NDP how they destroyed this province. Then you look at the Liberals how they’ve destroyed this province.”
