Why did Wynne say she won't be Ontario's premier?

Ontario premier concedes defeat ahead of next week's polls

The Liberal Party survives only if the NDP wins a majority.


Wynne spent much of the previous weeks issuing dire warnings as to what might happen to the province should her opponents win.

Des Rosiers said she still believes her chances are strong in the riding, which elected her in a by-election only two years ago. "She's demonstrated today that she speaks directly to the people", he said.

Perhaps if we're really lucky, we might see a replay of Kim Campbell's Party of Two in the 1993 federal election - an election that devastated the Tories, unseated Campbell and left her party with a mere two seats across the country.

"By voting Liberal you can keep the next government, Conservative or NDP, from acting too extreme - one way or the other. And her request today for a minority government is a demand that she be allowed to continue to hold the power at Queen's Park, something voters have already rejected", Ms. Horwath said in a statement. "Let's not go from bad to worse".

Responding to Ms. Wynne's announcement, Mr. Ford dismissed the Liberal leader's record as "disastrous" and said his party was ready to form government.

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.

A senior Liberal, speaking on condition of anonymity, said "the party is facing an existential crisis". Therefore, she says people should vote Liberal to ensure the other parties can not win anything except a minority.

The source listed about a dozen ridings in which the party thinks they have a reasonable shot at winning, such as Vaughan-Woodbridge, Toronto -St.

US job growth surges, unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent
The job market is also benefiting more people: The jobless rate for high school graduates fell to 3.9 percent, a 17-year low. Employment continued to trend up in several industries, including retail trade, health care, and construction.

But NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said Sunday that she would not accept help from the Liberals to prop up an NDP government.

Naqvi, who has represented the riding since 2007 and most recently served as the province's attorney general, called her remarks courageous.

"People are saying to me, 'Ford can keep his $18. We will fix this".

Local Liberal candidates are praising Wynne for taking a stepping back, and making this election less about herself. "She's saying, 'I'm not going to destroy this organization with my own personal hubris'".

Cochrane explains that the Liberals and New Democrats have offered "virtually identical" policies in recent years, which means many traditional Liberal supporters are "primed to vote NDP".

"It's a risky strategy for the Liberals, very much a Hail Mary kind of pass at the late stages of the game", he said.

If the Liberals win fewer than eight seats on Thursday, they'll lose official party status - which comes with funding for staff and research as well as greater prominence in Question Period.

Even though Wynne conceded yesterday she would not be Ontario's premier after Thursday's vote, she still urged people to vote for Liberal candidates and stop the Progressive Conservatives or the NDP from forming a majority government.
