The Ontario election campaign will be in long weekend mode today, with the three main party leaders all pulling light duty.

Premier Kathleen Wynne is scheduled to take part in an early morning community run in Mississauga before meeting with supporters in Orangeville later in the day.  She took Saturday off the campaign trail.

Kathleen Wynne:

  • Participates in the Inspirational Steps run in support of the Guru Gobind Singh Children's Foundation. 7:30 a.m. at the Ontario Khalsa Darbar in Mississauga
  • Meets local supporters at 11:45 a.m. .in Orangeville.

Tim Hudak:

  • Providing information to the media at 11 a.m. in Mississauga

Andrea Horwath:

  • Appears on "The Province' at Newstalk 1010 radio 1 p.m.

Tory leader Tim Hudak and NDP leader Andrea Horwath will both be making media appearances in the Greater Toronto Area.

The sleepy agenda is similar to Saturday's where Hudak and Horwath had fairly light schedules.

Horwath promised that a New Democratic government would set aside $60 million annually to save and maintain schools earmarked for closure for community and non-profit groups to use.

That prompted Education Minister Liz Sandals to accuse Horwath of putting "her own political interests first" by opposing the governing Liberals' budget, which included $11 billion to build or repair schools.

The Tories meantime released a new ad that they say portrays them as the party with a message of hope.

Election day is June 12.
