Ontario Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne has a busy campaign schedule Friday with two stops in Burlington, and visits to Lindsay and Bridgenorth on the schedule.

Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak starts the day in Whitby before addressing the Canadian Club of Toronto, while NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has a morning event in Toronto.

The campaign took a side trip to MaRS on Thursday.

The Tories released documents they claim show the governing Liberals secretly approved a $317-million bailout of a Toronto building project.

Hudak says Wynne approved a multimillion-dollar bailout for a private developer and a charity without the public's knowledge.

Wynne says the allegations are untrue, noting the proposed deal has not been made public because the purchase agreement has not been finalized.

On Thursday, Wynne continued to press Hudak for what she calls "fantasy" numbers put forward in his job creation plan.

The Liberals have pointed to analysis from economists that show the Tories miscalculated how many jobs such a plan would create. Hudak has said he stands by his numbers.

Wynne said if Hudak can't get an independent economist to back up his figures, he should redraft his plan before the June 3 televised leaders' debate so they can have an honest exchange.

"It can really be hard to admit when you've made a mistake, but it's the right thing to do," she said. "That's what we tell our kids and it's what I say to Tim Hudak today."

The Tory leader, who has already said he'll slash 100,000 public sector jobs, will have to cut even deeper into education and health care and fire more people to meet his promise to balance the budget in two years, she said.
