WATCH: Provincial leaders prep for debate

The only all-leader debate is on Tuesday night

Provincial leaders are flexing their political muscles, getting ready for the big three-party debate tomorrow night.

While out on the campaign trail today, they each offered a peek into their campaign strategy.

Premier Kathleen Wynne is the rookie in this match-up. She says she's excited to take part, calling it an opportunity. Wynne says many people haven't been paying attention to the election campaign up until now so this is her party's chance to engage them.

Tory leader Tim Hudak says he'll be the only "straight-shooter" up there, accusing the other two leaders of acting. Hudak claims both the Liberals and NDP will promise anything to get elected and then break those promises while in office.

While NDP leader Andrea Horwath isn't revealing her entire debate plan, she says she's ready to throwdown if need be. She says that's why she's known as the "Steeltown Scrapper," referencing her  roots in Hamilton.

    What worries me about the Liberals and NDP isn't that they'll break their campaign promises, but that they'll keep them. They're both promising to make Ontario even more hostile to job-creating businesses, to take Ontario even further into debt, and to take even more of our salaries in taxes to fund even more unnecessary handouts to special interest groups.

    We cannot afford a Liberal or NDP government. What we need is a government that understands it needs to spend within it's means. What we need is Tim Hudak and the PCs.

    I already cast my ballot in the advance polls, and Ontario needs you to get out and vote Blue.

    █Tim Hudak is talking about acting jobs, yet we have to endure watching him with his hands out like he is carrying a giant beach ball█ I guess that is his acting coaches suggestion that he will appear to have a greater presence if he looks like a big bird or an aircraft carrier.█

    █ Remember, it is always preferable to live on welfare and collect free money than to have a job and earn your keep.█ Jobs are an unnatural abomination, and it makes me sick to my stomach to think of Tim Hudak allowing evil, greedy businesses to create any more of them.█ This is why I vote for the Liberal/NDP coalition, so that everyone can off of welfare and receive free money forever.█ Free money, no work, no consequences, no downsides.█ Vote Liberal/NDP! █

      @█Alex█ Why your so blind that you cannot see the sins of the Liberals?

      Do you enjoy the lies, the waste and the corruption?

      Do you enjoy having billions of your tax $ wasted with e-health, ORNGE, moving the gas plants and now recently MARS

      Do you enjoy paying some the highest, if not the highest, electric rates in North America?

      Do you enjoy having your taxes pay the wages of a bloated over paid civil service? And I do not mean front line workers like nurses.

      Do you enjoy having a government impose such much red tape and extra expense on small business that in a recent poll most small businesses said that if the Liberals impose their pension plan that most of them will cut back on employee hours, lay people off or stop hiring. So how is that Liberal job creation?

      Tim's plan may or may not succeed but at least he has a plan. What plan does old Wynne bag have except to cost us more money?

      And don't give that Walmart bullshit. I work for a large company (no unions) for many years including the Mike Harris years. Oh yes we know how bad he was. They have always paid me a good wage and I have good benefits. But how long will it be before they decide they cannot do that any more because of Liberal waste and sucking up to government unions

      You know Lenin had a name for people like you. He called them useful idiots.

    **** BREAKING NEWS ****

    Tea Party Tim will be bringing his invisible beach ball along to the debate on Tuesday.

    When asked, Mr. Hudak confirmed that, while some people have their favourite baby blanket for security, he will be sticking with his imaginary friend "INVISIBALL" for comfort during the debate.

      @Fact Provider I love it when you guys start babbling about the invisible beach ball. It means that you're tired of defending the indefensible Liberal/NDP team and need to recharge by attacking completely superficial items.

      Other issues that are equally as important to the election and Ontario's economy as the invisible beach ball:
      - Does Hudak wear boxers or briefs?
      - What's the deal with Wynne's granny glasses?
      - Why does Horwath never wear a hat? What kind of hat would she wear if she did wear one?
