Did a politician or party sway your vote during the campaign?

There are only a few days left before Ontarians choose their next government and pollsters and pundits alike have been predicting a close race for Queen's Park.
Party leaders have been working hard to sway voters with an array of promises, primarily centred on improving health care, justice and education.
In addition to the platforms, the leaders have also been working to prove that they are the best choice as Ontario's premier. Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty has staunchly defended his government's record throughout the campaign, while PC Leader John Tory has campaigned on a "Leadership matters" platform and, along with NDP Leader Howard Hampton, has criticized the Liberals for their many so-called broken promises.
All the leaders have hit roadblocks. McGuinty had a sharp run-in with a cancer patient in Ottawa, while Hampton lashed out at reporters for not caring about his message. Meanwhile Tory has been dogged by the faith-based school funding issue, on which he recently softened his stance to include a free vote by his caucus.
Has anything happened during the campaign to sway your vote? If so, what was it? Why did/didn't your vote change?
