The gloves are off with nine days to go on the election campaign, with all three leaders throwing punches at each other the day after the debate.

Premier Kathleen Wynne scoffed at Tory leader Tim Hudak's vow to resign if he doesn't achieve his goals. She calls it a gimmick.

Down the 401 in Ajax, Hudak repeated that he'll keep his promises. He then pointed out that Wynne couldn't answer spending questions in the debate.

Meeting with supporters in Toronto, NDP leader Andrea Horwath also looked to the debate. She says she knows why the premier can't stand by her record - she just can't justify it.

Wynne announced today that she'd get the legislature back within 20 days if re-elected. She says that includes having a throne speech and re-tabling the budget. Hudak also said he would table a mini-budget as soon as possible if elected.

Neither opposition party supported the minority Liberal budget when it was tabled on May 1st, thrusting the province into an election campaign.
