Ontario Election Debate: Memorable Quotes From Wynne, Hudak, Horwath

Ontario Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne was put on the defensive right from the start of the election debate Tuesday night over the $1.1 billion gas plants scandal.

Wynne apologized and said she understood why voters are still angry about the costly decision to scrap two plants in Oakville and Mississauga.

While both PC Leader Tim Hudak and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath tried to paint the Liberal government as unethical and corrupt, Wynne tried to make her case that she is best prepared to lead the province through an uncertain future.

But Hudak, who has faced controversy over his plan to create one million private sector jobs over eight years — and to slash 100,000 public sector jobs — presented himself as the candidate of "hope."

Though some economists have said his plan is based on a mathematical miscalculation, Hudak vowed that he will resign if he can't pull of his "Million Jobs Plan."

Here are just a few of the memorable comments from the debate.

Ontario voters head to the polls on June 12.
