WATCH: NDP MPPs question party decisions

Horwath maintains she's not stepping down as leader

The day after NDP MPP Cheri DiNovo spoke out about her party moving away from it's labour base, Peter Tabuns is speaking out about what went wrong in Toronto.

The Toronto-Danforth MPP says his party needed to do more around social justice issues.

Tabuns says the NDP message just wasn't resonnating in Toronto, where they lost three seats. He says transit is a huge issue. However, he says the Liberals were able to get their transit message out there better than his party.

If if this means there should be a change in leadership, Tabuns says that's up to the leader and party to decide.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath says she's sticking around, pointing to a leadership review in their November convention.

Horwath calls the election results "bitter-sweet" because of losing the Toronto seats. She says they have work to do to re-engage their activists in the city and all over the province.
