All three leaders campaign in Toronto.

Another day on the campaign trail, with promises of getting people to take transit.

That means you could see less traffic on the roads.

The Premier stood next to an open hole on Eglinton by the Allen Expressway, where the Crosstown is being built. She says that  - and a list of other transit projects - will mean you can get home from work sooner.

Calling the traffic in the area a "beautiful disruption," Kathleen Wynne says she's convinced drivers will park their cars in favour of taking transit, which would relieve congestion.

In Scarborough, Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak had the same campaign faux pas two days in a row. He staged a photo op at a company which received government grants - something he opposes.

Hudak claims businesses have limited options in the province, especially when they're facing costs like high electricity bills.

Hudak's campaign staff also faced questions about footage of the latest Tory ad about job creation, which features footage of teens in a classroom and office workers - filmed in Russia.

The campaign defended the action, claiming they purchased stock footage from a website.

Meantime at Jane and Finch, NDP leader Andrea Horwath, tackled minimum was vowing to raise it to $12 an hour and lower small business tax.

Horwath's comments about Wynne allegedly privatizing the TTC, still stuck. TTC union head Bob Kinnear had a five-minute meeting with Wynne on her campaign bus to speak about and and while he said the premier listened to his ideas, the mood was tense.
