The NDP have backed the Liberals in a series of confidence motion votes.

Leader Andrea Horwath says if the NDP hadn't backed them, it would have sent the government into chaos.

Horwath says voting against the motions would have meant the province wouldn't be able to pay its bills, using the example of disability support. She says if the NDP didn't back them and sent the province to the ballot box,  Elections Ontario wouldn't have any money since one of these motions dealt with its budget.

Progressive Conservative MPPs booed the NDP when they stood to vote with the Liberals.

All votes passed 65-35.

Horwath says they take their responsibilities seriously, underlining they are not "Republican Americans."
