0 0

The election campaign was all over the map on Tuesday and not just geographically.

All three party leaders were out and about talking about a range of issues from allegations of corruption, education, and helping trades-people by getting rid of their regulatory body.

At Queen's Park, NDP leader Andrea Horwath points to the gas plant scandal, alleging the whole Liberal party and government is corrupt because of it. However, she wouldn't say Premier Kathleen Wynne is corrupt, only that she was at the centre of it.

Wynne was touring a school in Sault St Marie, promising a three-year, $150 million fund to pay for gadgets to help students learn. It would also help teacher with gadgets and IT resources.  

The Premier also made it clear that she would not be merging the Toronto and Catholic school boards. She would just say they need to work together more.

Wynne also vowed not to cut public sector jobs.

In Pickering, Tory leader Tim Hudak vowed to get rid of the College of Trades, which he says is an extra level of bureaucracy facing trades-people.
