VIDEO: Byelections in Vaughan and Kitchener-Waterloo Near
The clock is ticking before Thursday's provincial byelections in Kitchener-Waterloo and Vaughan.
That mean's the heat is being turned up at Queen's Park as the minority Liberals eye the seats they need to gain a majority.
While he says he has confidence in voters and will accept whatever mandate they give him, Premier Dalton McGuinty couldn't help but smile at the thought of gaining seats. However he says the province will move forward even if there is still a minority Liberal government in place.
PC leader Tim Hudak says his party is taking both byelections seriously, given Kitchener-Waterloo was more of a former PC MPP Elizabeth Witmer seat, as opposed to a Tory one.
WItmer resigned to head the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario (WSIB). Liberal MPP Greg Sorbara stepped down in Vaughan.
NDP MPP Peter Tabuns underlines hard to tell what will happen on Thursday and if it will be a reflection on what's going on in the legislature. He believes people in these ridings will be focused on both local and provincial issues.
