NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — NDP leader Andrea Horwath said voters don’t have to choose between corruption or bad math.
“We have a choice here, the choice is a plan that makes sense, the party that makes sense, the only party frankly that can stop Mr. Hudak is the NDP,” Horwath said on Thursday when she visited Niagara Falls, accompanied by NDP Niagara Falls candidate Wayne Gates.
“If you don’t like Mr. Hudak’s solutions that don’t make sense then your vote should come to the NDP on June 12,” she added.
Some city workers who were fixing a sidewalk near where Horwath’s bus had pulled up told the leader she needs to protect jobs, not cut them, which is what PC leader Tim Hudak is proposing.
Horwath said the Liberals have a record of corruption, and even though Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne has tried to distance herself from that record, she has not been able to do it.
“The people of this province deserve better. Hardworking, honest Ontarians deserve a hardworking, honest government,” said Horwath. “This campaign is really about choice and we have seen Ms. Wynne unable in the debate to stand up to Mr. Hudak, unable through this campaign to stand up to Mr. Hudak because of her indefensible behaviour of the corruption.
“Let’s take it over the top. Let’s win this election ... so that new democrats can implement a plan that makes sense for Ontario,” she said.
