Ontarians are headed to the polls next month.
Premier Kathleen Wynne will visit Lieutenant Governor David Onley at 2pm Friday to ask him to dissolve the legislature and trigger an election, likely June 12.
The minority Liberal's goose was cooked Friday morning when NDP leader Andrea Horwath revealed her party wouldn't support the budget presented by the government Thursday. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak rejected the spending plan before having seen it.
Horwath pointed to what she sees as Liberal blunders and scandals as reasons to yank NDP support of the Liberals. She specifically mentioned the gas plant scandal and high CEO salaries as reasons why voters should have an opportunity to elect a new government.
Horwath calls the budget a "mad dash" to escape scandals surrounding the cancellation of gas plants and the Ornge air ambulance service by promising voters "the stars and the moon."
