A new poll suggests the provincial Liberals would win another minority government in Ontario if an election were held today.
The poll found the Liberals and Tories were sitting tied at approximately 32 per cent support, while the NDP trailed with 29 per cent.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, meanwhile, said talk of an election is not going to change what her government is doing.
“It doesn’t actually change what were going to do,” said Premier Wynne. “I don’t think anyone wants an election at this juncture.”
For the premier as long as she is in power it will remain business as usual.
“We’re going to continue to make decisions, work with the opposition and develop a budget,” she said.
Despite the results, PC leader Tim Hudak is ready for an election.
“I just sense whenever I travel across the province that people are longing for change,” he said. “The Ontario that they thought they could have they can no longer afford.”
Hudak wasn’t flustered by the virtual deadlock between his Tories and the Liberals.
“It’s not what does the latest poll say, the question is, is Ontario on the right path or not?” he said.
The poll also noted NDP leader Andrea Horwath still has the highest popularity rating with 44 per cent while Wynne had 34 per cent and Hudak 24 per cent.
