It’s official!, Ontarians are heading to the polls to elect a new government after NDP leader, Andrea Horwath announced Friday morning that the NDP will not be supporting the Liberal minority government’s 2014 budget tabled yesterday at Queen’s Park.
The vote of no confidence will be made official Tuesday when the legislature votes on the budget which will trigger the election, now set for June 12.
“Let me be clear, we will be voting against this budget. It is time to go to the people and have them make a decision.” Horwath told reporters Friday.
“This budget is not a solid plan for the future, it’s a mad dash to escape the scandals by promising the moon and the stars,” Horwath said at a news conference Friday morning. “I have lost confidence in Kathleen Wynne and her ability to deliver.” Horwath said.
Sault Ste. Marie Liberal stronghold, MPP David Orazietti will attempt a fourth term to represent Sault Ste. Marie who was named Minister of Natural Resources last year by Premier Wynn.
Premiere Wynn in reaction to Horwath told reporters I’ve said all along … if we didn’t have a partner in the legislature, then we would take this budget to the people of the province, and we will do that.”
