Wynne's concession 'difficult' but 'honourable,' local Liberal candidates say

The London Health Sciences Centre's Victoria Hospital and Children's Hospital in London Ont

Ottawa-Orleans voter Zulfi Sadeque said he'd still be voting for local Liberal candidate Marie-France Lalonde, despite Kathleen Wynne's admission.

Many Ontarians were surprised and confused by Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne's announcement on Saturday that she won't be premier after Thursday's election. This time, she said she planned to cast her ballot on June 7 for the NDP to try to keep Ford out of the premier's office. I don't know who voters will choose but I am pretty sure that it won't be me.

"I'm running hard in my own riding, Don Valley West, because I want to go back to Queen's Park to continue to work for you, bringing our Liberal values to Queen's Park", she said. She said that committee would be modelled on one that looked into former premier Dalton McGuinity's decision to cancel two natural gas power plants. "People want clean lakes, they want clean rivers, they want clean air and we're going to make sure that we deliver that".

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.

Ford didn't offer anything in terms of publicized statements about Wynne's press conference, but Horwath was scathing in her response to the premier, saying she's basically giving up on the fight against "Doug Ford's cuts".

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. This is a man who has defended candidates who speak ill of others - who smear people due to their religion or gender or sexual orientation.

Wynne wouldn't say whether she'd stay on as party leader following the vote.

Jordan's King set to ask PM to resign amid protests sources
The Economist Intelligence Unit earlier this year ranked Jordan's capital as one of the most expensive in the Arab world. Since then nighttime protests have gripped Amman and other major cities in the cash-strapped country of 9.5 million.

Wynne said whichever way the vote goes, people should hope for a minority win to keep the government "from acting too extreme - one way or the other".

Ford's only comment about Wynne's announcement was that Ontarians are exhausted of the Liberals.

On the first day of Toronto's Pride Month, and with just six days left in the provincial election, Doug Ford refused to say Friday whether he would march in the Pride Parade.

A senior campaign official said Wynne started thinking about the move after her hope for a bump in polling following the last debate didn't materialize and it became clear the Liberals couldn't win.

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

"As far as I'm concerned this strategy is really good news for the (Progressive) Conservatives", Cochrane adds.

When it came to accessing talent, the Liberals have promised $132 million over the next three years to creating more postsecondary STEM programming, while the NDP promises to create 27,000 new co-ops and internships and redistribute $57 million from the Jobs and Prosperity Fund for opportunities in trade.
