THE MORNING CATCH-UP
With Ontario voters going to the polls in just over two weeks, the major party leaders on Monday were preparing for their final debate that night ahead of the June 2 election.
The debate begins at 6:30 pm at the TVO Broadcast Center in Toronto and is being hosted by journalists Althia Raj and Steve Paikin.
Participating in the 90-minute debate are Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford; NDP leader Andrea Horwath; Liberal leader Steven Del Duca; and Green Party leader Mike Schreiner.
The four previously debated last week in North Bay. The leaders’ political history and their visions for Ontario’s future was the focus, as well as Premier Ford’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the Tories currently leading in the polls, including 338Canada.com/Ontario, both the NDP and the Liberals are fighting to convince voters that they’re the party to topple the Ford government.
