Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne admits she will lose provincial election

Kathleen Wynne says she won’t be Ontario premier, urges voters to ensure an NDP or PC minority government

Ontario premier concedes defeat ahead of next week's polls

The Ontario Liberal Party also released a campaign ad echoing Wynne's warning about a majority government.

The premier of Canada's most populous province, Ontario, conceded defeat on Saturday ahead of next week's election, but called on voters to vote for her party anyway to keep the next government in check. "And her request today for a minority government is a demand that she be allowed to continue to hold the power at Queen's Park - something voters have already rejected".

"When you have a minister of the Crown being alleged to be engaged in this sort of activity and alleged to be intimidating a mayor of a municipality for the objective of greasing the wheels for a property development, and then you have a premier who is accused of not acting on those allegations, those are some pretty serious problems and I think if the OPP sees fit, that would be a good place for them to spend some time", Ms. Horwath said. After Thursday, I will no longer be Ontario's Premier. Still, she encouraged voters to elect as many Liberal candidates as possible to prevent Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives or Horwath's NDP from from forming majority governments.

Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne is sticking to Toronto for the day, including a visit to a street festival.

Doug Ford won't say whether he'll march in Toronto's annual Pride parade if elected Ontario premier, prompting his rivals to question the Tory leader's support of the LGBTQ community.

Ontario Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne switched gears Sunday, from pushing for her party to be re-elected to instead using the last few days of the election campaign to try to save what Liberal seats she can.

World No Tobacco Day
Tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, including tar and others that can narrow arteries and damage blood vessels. Yearly tobacco kills seven million individuals all over the world - greater than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria mixed.

On Friday, Wynne stuck to her defensive pitch - that she would still make the best leader - saying people need to be "very careful" in deciding who would be best at building the province.

Meanwhile, Windsor-Tecumseh candidate Remy Boulbol said in a written statement that Wynne has been an "inspiration to me as a woman looking to enter politics", and that the Liberal platform remains best for Ontario.

The latest polls have the NDP and the Progressive Conservatives neck-and-neck, with the Liberals floundering. Her faith in the Liberals was shaken and her vote will go to the NDP, she said. They don't trust the choices he would make.

Before the 1980s, many political scientists believed people's associations with political parties were formed nearly at birth - inherited from parents and reinforced by stable communities in which they lived.

"What's really remarkable this time is that within about two days of this campaign starting, that decision had more or less been made - that it was quite clear that it was going to be the NDP against the Conservatives". 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.
