Ontario Steelworkers endorse Andrea Horwath and the NDP

"It's hard because I know there are Liberals who believe in us", she said.

Kathleen Wynne has come to the realization that the Liberals will not win the June 7th Provincial election.

The decision was a hard one to make, she said, but seemed to be the only solution in an election where voters appear set on a new government but reluctant to fully hand over the reins to either of her rivals. "On the other extreme, you have the NDP, who have historically campaigned against free-trade agreements - I would suggest a rigid and impractical position". "The reason is the strenght of the government's response and the kinds of things that Premier Wynne has done".

"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.

Ontario's Liberal premier says her first priority if re-elected will be to support the province's steel industry in the wake of newly announced USA trade tariffs. "I think overall voting NDP makes the most sense". It's about the people of this province.

She also criticized Tory Leader Doug Ford - who she said has not responded to her call for united opposition to the tariffs - and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who has said Wynne and Trudeau could have done more to prevent the tariffs.

I think it may be time for other players to aspire to be the best in the world - and the best at this World Cup , too. Neymar suffered a major foot injury during French league game against Olympique de Marseille on February 25.

It's unclear if Wynne will step down as leader of the Liberal party after the election that is just five days away.

"It became clear - and she conceded [that] - that she can not win the election". 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. Therefore, she says people should vote Liberal to ensure the other parties can not win anything except a minority. He told reporters his attention is only on winning government, saying his party is taking nothing for granted.

Standing behind a sign reading simply, "Vote Liberal", instead of her usual sign with her campaign slogan of "Care Over Cuts", Wynne said it's important to return as many Liberals as possible to the legislature to avoid having a majority government.

By voting Liberal you can keep Doug Ford - and the NDP, from having a blank cheque.

"So I think electorally, it's strategic, but as a leader of a party, I actually think it's really selfless". "They're hoping they can salvage (the party).it's about saying to people: don't abandon us".

Cochrane explains that the Liberals and New Democrats have offered "virtually identical" policies in recent years, which means many traditional Liberal supporters are "primed to vote NDP". Some polls show the projected Liberal seat count is so low that the party is in danger of losing its official status at Queen's Park.
