They've been out shaking hands and posing for photos since Friday but provincial party leaders can actually say they're out campaigning. The province's Lt-Gov David Onley has dropped the writ, making things official.

Standing on the front lawn of queen's park in front of an orange bus with her face on it, NDP leader Andrea Horwath says she tried to deliver results for residents and when she thought that couldn't happen, she put it in voters' hands

She says teh Liberals need a "time out" from all the scandals. She also repeated promises to reform the energy system and give out $100 hydro rebates.

Down the 401, in Kitchener Waterloo at a tech company, Premier Kathleen Wynne took a swipe at the Tories. She claims claims leader Tim Hudak is naive about the complexity of the global economy and Ontario's place in it, with his criticism of government grants.

Wynne also welcomed a prediction by former Progressive Conservative MPP Peter Shurman on Newstalk 1010, who believes when the dust settles Ontario will have another minority Liberal government.

Shurman believes that's because elections are popularity contests and "she's the best salesperson."

Hudak pushed his jobs plan for the third day in a row, positioning it as a corner-stone to his platform.

The Green Party also launched its campaign at Queen's Park, with hopes of getting a seat in the legislature this time around.
