Tim Hudak takes the Tory campaign to Orleans, Dundas, Brampton and Bradford, and the NDP bus will be carrying Andrea Horwath to events in Toronto, Sarnia, Chatham and Windsor.
Yesterday Wynne stepped up her attacks on her rivals, accusing Hudak and Horwath of using the gas-plant scandal to try to deflect attention from their own unpopular campaign plans.
She also warned that voting for the NDP would really mean a vote for the Tories, who she said would destroy Ontario's economy.
Tim Hudak was telling voters to expect the Liberals to resort to scare tactics — to try to paint him and his platform as a bogeyman in order to deflect attention from their scandals.
Andrea Horwath has framed the Liberals as corrupt and said Tim Hudak's math in his "Million Jobs" plan doesn't add up, but yesterday she went even further in denouncing the Tories' platform, calling it "crazy."
She said voters don't have to choose between "corrupt and crazy" — they can choose the NDP.
Several polls suggest the Liberals and P-Cs are in a statistical dead heat, and winning over some of the NDP' traditional supporters may be Wynne's best shot at staying in power.
