"As recently as yesterday, Kathleen Wynne assured families who rely on our steel and aluminum industry that her government is defending Ontario", Horwath said in a statement.

Wynne, who first entered politics as a school trustee in 2000, said at the beginning of the campaign that she believed her party could turn the tide.

"Kathleen Wynne has abandoned the fight against Doug Ford cuts".

"She's always been somebody who's very honest and a woman of integrity". This is a man who has defended candidates who speak ill of others - who smear people due to their religion or gender or sexual orientation.

"We've been talking about our plan every day and it's all there in one spot to show Ontario voters the stark choice between a responsible and modest spending of a PC government and a radical NDP who will be disastrous for the people of Ontario", she said.

The credit card of the Ontario government is being declined by the voters.

"It wasn't expected", he said, adding he thought it was responsible and practical.

"What's really remarkable this time is that within about two days of this campaign starting, that decision had more or less been made - that it was quite clear that it was going to be the NDP against the Conservatives".

"We were assertive, we were steadfast in our effort to make Ontario's case to those decision makers".

The latest polls suggest the race is close between the NDP and the Progressive Conservatives. It looks like we're not going to have a Liberal government.

"It's for protecting Ontarians". For this reason, many voters are anxious about handing a blank cheque to either Doug Ford or the NDP.

In 2014 Horwath shifted her party to the centre, right of Wynne, to try to gain some voter traction away from the Tories.

"He's missing out on an opportunity if he doesn't take part but that's up to him to decide", she said.

"It's a realization that the Kathleen Wynne brand might be more detrimental than the Liberal party brand", she said. "I'm the strongest local representative here", says Liberal candidate for Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte, Jeff Kerk.

"They are anxious about a majority NDP government, and they want to know what it would mean to cast their vote for Liberal and what I'm saying is, 'Yeah, it looks like I'm not going to be the premier".

Dan Benoit also lives in the riding, and said he was already leaning toward voting for Cameron Montgomery, the PC candidate.

"If regular rank-and-file Liberal supporters going in to cast their ballots realized that the Liberals had absolutely no hope to win, the natural vote for them might have been to park their vote with the NDP, which might have helped push the NDP up ahead of the (Progressive) Conservatives, to even win this election", Cochrane says.
