DayStarter City News

The provincial party leaders election debate played out Tuesday night, with Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath and Progressive Conservative Tim Hudak attacking Premier Kathleen Wynne on the issue of accountability and in particular, the cancellation of gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga.

Horwath and Wynne made many mentions of the “bad math” associated with Hudak’s vaunted Million Jobs Plan, which has raised the eyebrows of some economists and political commentators. The election, if you've forgotten, is in eight days. 

In local news, a city hall plan to spend $230,000 on a new welcome sign on Highway 403 at Highway 6 is still on the table, but officials says the design could change.
