QUEEN'S PARK WITH KATIE FRANZIOS

Tories, Liberals involved in "Tractor-gate"

It's the middle of a provincial election campaign after a government was toppled and the day after the long weekend revolved around tractors.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Both the Liberals and Tories actually took jabs at each other because of tractor safety on Tuesday.

Why?

Well, it all started with Premier Kathleen Wynne driving into a Paris, Ontario photo op on a tractor - and someone hanging off the side of it. The Tories came out guns blazing, accusing the premier of not knowing how to safely operate the piece of farming equipment.

That lead to the Liberals digging up a picture of Tory leader Tim Hudak not properly getting off of a tractor last fall.

The Tories countered *that* tractor wasn't moving at the time.

Don't get me wrong - you should be safe while operating farming equipment. But perhaps this attack your opponent's strategy the parties are taking may be going a wee too far.
