NewsAlert: Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne admits she won't win provincial election

The Liberal candidates in three of Windsor-Essex's ridings have reacted to the news that Wynne is not expecting to be premier in the next government.

"We do not know the state of the finances of Ontario, and anyone who tells you they know is lying", said Melissa lantsman, referring to the conclusion of the auditor General of the province that deficit projections of liberals underestimated.

Following the announcement on Thursday, Horwath said Ontario steel workers were "dealt a direct blow" from the Trump administration while attacking Wynne's credibility of protecting workers.

She is urging voters to elect as many Liberals as possible to prevent a majority government being formed by Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives or Andrea Horwath's New Democrats.

Kathleen Wynne has publicly conceded she won't be premier after Ontario residents go to the polls this Thursday.

She declined, however, to endorse either the Tories or the NDP, nor would she comment on the possibility of strategic voting, a perennial issue in elections where voters appear to be clamouring for change.

Ford is vying to replace Ontario's first openly gay premier Kathleen Wynne.

Global reported that PC leader Doug Ford "had little to say in response to Wynne's announcement" while campaigning in Nepean yesterday. Therefore, she says people should vote Liberal to ensure the other parties can not win anything except a minority.

On Friday, Wynne stuck to her defensive pitch - that she would still make the best leader - saying people need to be "very careful" in deciding who would be best at building the province.

The Liberals have been trailing the NDP and PCs in the polls, and Wynne admits her party can not win the June 7th vote.

Should the New Democrats win office after the June 7 election, Ms. Horwath said she would call for an all-party committee to look into the situation.

Up in Parry Sound-Muskoka, Liberal candidate Brenda Rhodes says she's received a lot of support from constituents, which fuels her commitment to fighting for a seat at the legislature. "They just make no sense and they put so many families at risk".

In her latest campaign strategy, Wynne has addressed that fact that she is not well liked.

"People worry about what will happen to our economy if the NDP form a majority government with nothing to hold them back. But you better believe having more Liberals at Queen's Park to fend off whatever extreme policies a Doug Ford or an NDP government would bring forward, that's important". The worry for the party is that the Liberals could lose official party status, with some polls suggesting the Liberals could win fewer than the required eight seats.
