Ontario Votes: Where the leaders are today
Party leaders make final push with only two days left to campaign,
With only two days left to campaign ahead of Thursday's vote, Ontario's party leaders will be busy making a final push for support today.
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will make four stops in the riding of Essex where her candidate Taras Natyshak won by just 1,300 votes in 2011 over the PCs.
Horwath will also travel to London, which is proving to be a popular stop for all three party leaders in the final days of this campaign.
She will also be in the riding of Brant, where Liberal incumbent Dave Levac is fighting for his fourth win after finishing ahead of the PCs in 2011 by a little more than 1,100 votes. The riding is now considered a three-way race between Levac, NDP candidate Alex Felsky and Phil Gillies of the PCs.
Horwath's bus will also head to Kitchener-Waterloo, a riding won by the NDP's Catherine Fife in a 2012 byelection. This riding is also tipped as a three-way race between Fife, the PCs Tracey Weiler (who ran in 2012) and Jamie Burton of the Liberals.
Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne will focus on areas east of Toronto including Kingston, Pickering and Trenton.
PC Leader Tim Hudak will start his day in the Greater Toronto Area with stops in Richmond Hill and Oakville before heading to London.
