WATCH: NDP, Liberals make pleas to other parties' supporters

The last week of the campaign heats up

Two parties are making their pleas for voters to switch allegiances in this election.

The Liberals are stopping at nothing in hopes of blocking the Tories from getting the corner office at Queen's Park.

In Cambridge, Kathleen Wynne tells NDP supporters to vote strategically and back the Liberals.

Wynne says this will help block Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak from leading a government and going through with his proposed public sector job cuts.

She made this request after she stated the end of election campaign is about strategy and playing politics, and she wants to showcase the Liberal plan.

Standing by the Jack Layton stature at the Toronto Island Ferry docks, Andrea Horwath wants Tory and Liberal supporters to back the NDP.

She stressed she's running for the premier's job.

Horwath was pressed on if she would support a minority Liberal or Tory government, but she underlined she wouldn't support "corruption" or job cuts.

Tory leader Tim Hudak started his day in Ottawa, criticizing both Liberal and NDP spending proposals.

Hudak says the the other two parties are conducting a "frantic, negative campaign."

    This election is down to the NDP vs. the PC's, plus a few idiots who will be voting for the corrupt, dishonest and incompetent Liberals.
    Unfortunately, the percentage of idiots in Toronto is approaching 50%.

    Oh, gawd.. When will I learn to stop drinking coffee while reading this stuff... As soon as I read that Wynne wouldn't support "corruption", I spit coffee all over my screen.
