NDP, Tories tied at 37 per cent support, new poll suggests

Wynne warns NDP government could mean indefinite strikes

The Progressive Conservative leader and the Liberal premier raised the alarm Wednesday about what they consider the risks of supporting the New Democrats, after recent polls suggest the party is tied with the Tories for the most support with two weeks left until the provincial election.

Kathleen Wynne's Liberals are said to be down to 23 per cent, while the Greens under Mike Schreiner stand at four per cent support according to Poll Tracker.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford will be campaigning in the southwest, making an announcement in Woodslee, Ont., and then heading to Kingsville, Ont., for a meet and greet before attending a rally this evening in Chatham, Ont.

"It's pretty clear that people have decided Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals are not going to form government next time around", said NDP Leader Andrea Horwath.

Trump’s Lawyer Invited to Classified Briefing on Investigation of Trump
Mark Warner (D-Va.), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, later criticized their presence at the latter meeting. The invite list evolved up until hours before the meeting - a reflection of the partisan distrust and the political wrangling.

The New Democrats have released a full platform, and the Liberals have so far been campaigning on the policies laid out in their recent budget.

In his first public appearance since the National Post broke the story that Ford paid for memberships for new members - contrary to party rules - Ford denied the claims made by a former top party official and a party member who was present at the 2016 vote.

"People want change (but) they don't want an NDP government", Ford said in Toronto.

Her government has helped ensure strong business, a strong economy and a fairer society - accomplishments too important to abandon, Wynne said.

Is this final: Russians shot down MH17 after all
It is the clearest link yet published by the team of the involvement of Russian military in the deadly missile strike. Russia's defense ministry meanwhile said it had nothing to do with the incident, Interfax news agency reported .

"But if you look at different areas within the province, there's kind of a different picture emerging", she said, noting the battle within Toronto appears to be between the Liberals and the NDP. "We went through an appeals process and the appeal was totally dismissed", Ford said at a campaign stop at a metal fabrication company in Tillsonburg, about 30 kilometres southeast of London.

"I think most Ontarians want a plan.want something to maybe not hope for but to believe in and we don't see that with Doug Ford", she said.

On Thursday afternoon, PC Leader Ford tweeted out a video in which McCallion said he was the right leader to "bring Ontario back to its status as the leading province in Canada".

He said his focus is on creating jobs and lowering electricity rates.

Trump administration considers tariff on cars
Almost half of the vehicles sold in the US are imported, with numerous vehicles coming from assembly plants in Mexico and Canada. Auto trade has been a big sticking point in talks between the United States, Mexico and Canada as they try to update NAFTA.

Ford also has a single campaign event on his schedule, also in Toronto.
