Northern debate kicks off Day 3 of Ontario election campaign


Ontario’s major party leaders will kick off the third day of the provincial election campaign with a debate.

Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne, Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will lock horns at the closing event of the Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities conference in Parry Sound, Ont.

Kapuskasing, Ont., Mayor Alan Spacek says conference participants are looking forward to asking tough questions and hearing the leaders’ plans for northern Ontario.

After the debate, Ford will attend a meet-and-greet in Parry Sound before heading south to visit a fire station in Waubaushene, Ont., and to attend an evening rally in Barrie, Ont.

Horwath will head to Sudbury, Ont., after the debate for an afternoon campaign event, while Wynne returns to the Toronto area to speak at the opening of the International Film Festival of South Asia Toronto in Mississauga, Ont.

During campaigning on Thursday, the Liberals accused the New Democrats of having a disdain for business, the NDP gained the support of a teachers’ union and Ford promised he would cut taxes for the middle class if he’s elected premier on June 7.


  1. The fact that the Green party is not involved should be illegal. Fair? Democracy? Ummm nope. If they receive government funding like they do, they should be allowed to attend these. Shady.

  2. Folks, this was warned before wynne’s libs made the lame brain decision to increase the minimum wage and now it’s a reality. Since Jan. 1, Ontario has lost a net total of 45,000 part time jobs. That’s right….. 45,000 jobs lost. The warning was originally stated that Ontario would lose about 50,000 part time jobs. And horwath would take us down the same garden path because the ndp has this fool-hardy belief that if she taxes those earning over $200,000 more, she will have lots of tax dollars for more social programs. People in that income range already pay taxes at a 54% rate. The libs and the ndp are simply racing each other to the bottom of the barrel. And they’re dragging us with them. Please cast your vote on June 7.

  3. She can do all the debates she wants she already has Ontario screwed up .Not getting 2 votes at this household.She,s nuts and has the credentials to prove it!
