"The choice is between me and Doug Ford, (and) to those who have voted Liberal in the past, I invite you to join us to stop Doug Ford and vote for the kind of change that Ontario needs".
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is appealing to traditional Liberal voters Friday, saying they should choose her party if they want to avoid a Doug Ford government. This time, she said she planned to cast her ballot on June 7 for the NDP to try to keep Ford out of the premier's office. "It's pretty rich for a premier who has lost the confidence of a majority of the people of this province to say she knows what is best".

But NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said Sunday that she would not accept help from the Liberals to prop up an NDP government.
Lastman, who served as the high-profile Toronto mayor for two terms starting in 1998, said he trusts Ford to make life more affordable for average citizens and to return Ontario to its position as the economic powerhouse of Canada.
The strategic voting pitch comes as polls suggest Ontario's next premier will either be Horwath or Ford. This is a man who has defended candidates who speak ill of others - who smear people due to their religion or gender or sexual orientation.
Both Horwath and Wynne heaped scorn on the notion that Ford had released a full plan Wednesday. For the adult daughter who does all she can to care for her aging parents while she also scrambles to find safe, affordable child care for her own toddler.

Wynne wouldn't say whether she'd stay on as party leader following the vote.
Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford says his alternative climate change policy for Ontario as part of a sharply reduced environmental budget includes a focus on clean water and air and a heavy hand on polluters but not a price on emissions.
Wynne announced that the Liberals don't have a chance to form a majority government.
"They're for the working people".
"I don't think we're there yet".
At this point, polls show there is less fear of an NDP government than a Tory one and this might push some potential Liberal voters to throw their support behind the New Democrats, he said.
"I view it as the potential harm is greater than the gain but at this stage, I think the Liberals are doing all that they can to keep party status in the legislature and win enough seats that rebuilding is possible or much easier than if they get wiped out".
