The Progressive Conservatives' Tim Hudak and the New Democrats' Andrea Horwath emerged as the clear winners in Tuesday's leaders' debate, as Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne spent 90 minutes attempting to correct her party's record of debt, deficits, and corruption.
Liberal corruption and the Conservatives' plan to cut public sector jobs dominated the Ontario leader's election debate tonight. Premier Kathleen Wynne was on the defensive from the very start of the...
TORONTO - Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak upped the ante Tuesday in defending his widely questioned plan to create a million jobs over eight years, saying he would quit as premier if he fail...
John Duffy (Liberal): Dalton McGuinty is the most consistently under-rated politician of his generation, and now, very clearly, one of the most successful. To him and his team go very high honours, and the challenge of charting the choppy waters ahead.
Jason Lietaer (PC): I spent this morning at a powerful symbol of this campaign: the "abandoned" Mississauga power plant. I say "abandoned" because Dalton McGuinty now says he will "move" it. Sure.
John Duffy (Liberal): It just doesn't feel like the anger is there this time. This is not to suggest that there aren't a lot of disappointed Ontarians, but there isn't enough fury directed at the Liberals to produce the kind of epic sacking that seemed in store for them.
Jason Lietaer (PC): There will always be some kind of allegation of hate or intolerance thrown by the grits. This time, it's homophobia. And it's nonsense. McGuinty's making sure that parents don't have any say in what kids are taught at school about these topics. We stand on the side of parents.
John Duffy (Liberal): Horwath will be under pressure to provide greater clarity regarding her statement about the need for "consensus" in the event of a minority government. I'd imagine she'd rather not leave NDP voters with the impression that she's planning on supporting a Tim Hudak administration.
Jason Lietaer (PC): You know it's unpredictable when leaders start making things up. This week, Mr. McGuinty launched a new jobs plan that's not in his platform, announced a negotiating position for the OMA talks and cancelled a powerplant that looks more like a powerplant than a field.

Jason Lietaer (PC): Ms. Horwath did well. Much improved from her performance on Friday. She was poised and on message, and I think most Ontarians saw her as genuine. Her ideas all sound great until you start to cost them, but that's not the biggest issue in any debate. Details don't win, impressions do.

TORONTO - For a premier who's known for his even temper, Dalton McGuinty was so animated during Tuesday's Ontario leaders debate that his hands may have upstaged his message.The usually reserved McGui...
There was no knockout blow, no decisive victor and very few spirited exchanges in Tuesday night’s Ontario leaders’ debate. The party leaders — the Liberals' Dalton McGuinty, Tim Hudak of the Progress...
