NDP's Horwath says no way to coalition with Wynne Liberals
New Democrat leader was less firm about issue when asked Sunday
New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath says there's no way she'd join forces with the Liberals to form a coalition government.
Her comments today appear to go further than when she was asked Sunday about the possibility of a coalition should the Progressive Conservatives win a minority in the upcoming election.
On the weekend, she said she wouldn't work with a party that wants to make life harder for everyday families, but that it's impossible to say anything definitive before she sees the election results.
Today, Horwath was unequivocal in saying she has "no interest" in partnering with the Liberals after the June 7 vote.
"I am unequivocally saying I have no interest in partnering up with that party," Horwath said Monday. "They have consistently made decisions that were in their own political best interest, decisions that were in the best interest of the well-connected Liberals and high-income earners that tend to be their friends."
She says voters have no confidence the Liberals would do what they say or fix what they've broken and that people in Ontario are tired of the Liberals under Premier Kathleen Wynne.
Horwath's comments came in Brampton, where she said an NDP government would build a third hospital in the fast-growing city northwest of Toronto.
