NDP's Horwath makes strategic voting pitch to Liberal supporters

"Over the past year, I have met with 37 governors, I have met with senators, I've met with congresspeople, I've met with senior members of the USA administration, all in an attempt to make it clear what our integrated relationship means to workers on both sides of the border", said Wynne, who has been trailing behind her rivals in recent polls.

The Progressive Conservative leader says he has not yet decided if he will attend and participate in the event if he wins the June 7 vote.

"Her message to Ontarians is one that I believe deeply in, and one that I hope will galvanise our province to ensure that we do not go backwards in our progress", said Boulbol.

The move did not sit well with NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who accused Wynne of "playing a unsafe game" that could propel the Tories to a majority.

"A majority with Doug Ford is the scariest situation for me", says Kerk.

Her choice of candidates - many of them with hostile agendas - is a real dog's breakfast of social justice warriors and those highly intolerant of a diverse point of view, much like the professional protesters and the leftist profs who've turned political correctness into a caricature of itself on university campuses.

Horwath's voting pitch - typically seen as Ontario and federal elections move into their final stretches - comes as polls suggest either she or Ford will become Ontario's next premier.

She also criticized Tory Leader Doug Ford - who she said has not responded to her call for united opposition to the tariffs - and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who has said Wynne and Trudeau could have done more to prevent the tariffs.

"It is a logical next step", she said.

It's unclear if Wynne will step down as leader of the Liberal party after the election that is just five days away.

"By voting Liberal you can keep the next government, Conservative or NDP, from acting too extreme - one way or the other". Polling aggregates and projections for weeks have been showing the PC's leading with the most seats with the NDP forming the Official Opposition.

Global reported that PC leader Doug Ford "had little to say in response to Wynne's announcement" while campaigning in Nepean yesterday.

Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath visited the campaign office of London North Centre candidate Judy Bryant in London, Ont. on Friday May 16, 2014.

"I don't think we're there yet".

Ontario Liberal spokesman Drew Davidson said of Lastman's support for Ford: "Who'd take an endorsement like this seriously?"

"They're going to be choosing a person to lead them who will be in some very tricky, very delicate negotiations with USA officials", Wynne said.

The Liberal Party has been trailing a distant third in recent polls, and Wynne's popularity has been low.
