The Premier isn't ruling out the possibility of a coalition government if the Progressive Conservatives win a minority on June 12th.

However, Kathleen Wynne treaded lightly, underlining the province won't know the make-up of the legislature until election day. She says she'll work as hard as she can to get her plan out there.

Wynne says she's demonstrated that she can work in a minority parliament.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath also says she can't guess what Ontarians will decide in 16 days. She stresses that whatever decision they make it will be the right decision.

This comes as Tory leader Tim Hudak tries to defend the math of his Million Jobs Plan, with some economists claiming he over-stated the amount of positions he can create.

Hudak says numbers could fluctuate.

Western University business professor Paul Boothe wrote in Maclean's that math errors means the party counted the same new position eight times. He also suggested the Tory's also may have considered how long a person was employed as different jobs. That means if you've been holding the same position for eight years, it would count as eight jobs.
