WATCH: NDP walk out of Question Period

NDP leader leads caucus out of proceedings in protest

NDP leader Andrea Horwath led her MPPs out of Question period, stressing that she can't ask questions to a premier who isn't there.

Kathleen Wynne was at a previously scheduled event in Sault-Ste-Marie.

Horwath stood up in her allotted time to ask a question and stormed out with the rest of the NDP caucus.

She wouldn't say if the gas plant email deletion scandal was enough for her to stop propping up the minority Liberals. Horwath and the NDP have been letting budgets pass since 2011.

Horwath also wouldn't commit to walking out of the legislature again if Wynne does not attend question period on another day this week.

    The NDP are no better than the Liberals; after all, orange is nothing but read with a streak of yellow running through it. What we need is an ELECTION, and for a strong blue majority in Parliament to finally clean up the mess that the Liberals have made of this province.

      @Jack So what is Wynne actually doing at her prearranged meeting in Sault Ste. Marie....hopefully something a bit more important than answering questions in the Legislature about possible criminal was print media that went to Court to get the documents...Wynne must have had a canary when the story came out in the Star and the Ottawa Citizen...the cable news networks dragged their feet (reluctantly started to report about an hour after it came out in Question Period). It makes me very nervous to think what else we don't know about the corruption of this Government. It's scary to think what we don't know about Ornge.

    Awww...ain't that cute. Horvath is pretending to be upset- walking out in a huff.

    She must be in a panic to watch her political careers run off a cliff- because she hung her hopes on the wrong political stripe.

      @Karl Burgin The NDP is afraid of losing hence the propping up of the Fiberal government.. those NDP MPs better be careful, the voters might be sick and tired of their leader - Andrea Horwath constant propping of this government
      that they night lose their seats in the next election..

      I am .. so I am not voting NDP and I am not voting Liberal,, and with Tim Hudak as the PC leader,, he is the better of all evil....

      @Mark7 No...I'm humble enough to know I definitely don't know anything.
      But I sure as hell know a lot more than you.
      Such as I know I have a lot more courage than you to make my spiel using my own ID, instead of hiding behind someone else's.

      Is that a new tactic you and your cowardly posse are employing now? I heard on the radio that people are imitating Doug Ford on twitter, and spouting garbage too...

      What a cowardly bunch you all are....sadly pathetic.

    We all know Horwath is the real premier so what was all that nonsense about?

    Hudak rolled the die ... and has very likely crapped out again.
    But, to prove he's as bad at craps as he is at politics, he's now doubled down.
    On behalf of 70% of Ontario voters, thank you, Tim, for sparing us from you as Premier.

      @Fact Provider In order to play craps, you need 2 dice.. not one.

      Dedicated to the advocation of accuracy in metaphors.

      (You can double post, so can I!) :-p
