TORONTO, Ont. – Soaring electricity bills, a ban on Toronto public transit strikes, a spring budget and the countdown to a fall election campaign will be top of mind for Ontario politicians as they head back to work, Tuesday.

This spring session is expected to be stormy as opposition parties are expected to step up their attacks on the McGuinty government, which will seek its third term in the October 6 election.

Premier Dalton McGuinty insists he wants to focus on issues, not politics.

This is the last legislation session before provincial politicians head out on the campaign trail.

Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak is already parroting Toronto’s penny-pinching mayor, whose “respect for taxpayers” slogan won over the vote-rich city last fall.
