WATCH: Opposition snap back at premier
Questions of a spring provincial election continue
1 0

The stage for a spring election is being set.

The province's opposition parties are slamming attacks made by the Premier last night, as Kathleen Wynne underlined she has the "safe hands" to lead Ontario.

Wynne claims opposition parties are "reckless" but both the NDP and Progressive Conservatives say she has the whole thing backwards.

PC MPP Jane McKenna questions the premier's attacks underlining the Wynne government's "safe hands" steered the wheel of the gas plant cancellations which cost the province $1 billion.

"If that's the steady hand of who you want running this province, God help us all," McKenna said.

NDP house leader Gilles Bisson also pointed to the cancellations.

With the NDP helping to pass the minority Liberal budget twice, Bisson won't come right out and say his party will vote a minority Liberal budget down after the Premier's attacks. That would trigger an election.

He says it's all in the Premier's hands, who he says is focused on doing what's best for her party not residents.

The finance minister says he'll table a budget sometime this spring.

The Tories have already said they will not support it.
