The NDP's Andrea Horwath says she wants to make it clear she's running to be Ontario's next premier.

The leader of the third party says New Democrats are a realistic alternative to what she calls the "corrupt" Liberals.

The Progressive Conservatives, she says, would set Ontario back with deep public-sector cuts.

Both Premier Kathleen Wynne and Tory leader Tim Hudak have tried to frame the election as a two way race, while largely dismissing the NDP.

But Horwath is shrugging off suggestions that Ontarians might choose to ignore the New Democrats to try to stop the Liberals or PCs from winning office.

Instead, she says New Democrats would not waste taxpayer dollars as the Liberals have done with decisions like cancelling two gas plants at a cost of up to $1.1 billion.
