Sure looks that way.
After the weekend Ontario NDP convention – wherein leader Andrea Horwath was mightily embarrassed by a pro-election resolution put forward by union boss Sid Ryan – I’d say the odds just went up dramatically. Ryan is pushing for an election, and his resolution passed. Horwath isn’t in control so much, anymore.
We don’t want an election, but we’re ready for one. If it happens, we will remind voters that (a) the Ontario PCs promised to vote against the budget before they’d even read it and (b) the Ontario NDs are promising to vote against the budget unless they get their billion-dollar ransom note demands met.
Ontario doesn’t need or want an election just a few months after the last one. If it happens, we’re going to make Hudak and Horwath wear it. And I believe we will win a majority, too.
