Russ Campbellâs Blog: Ontario Election: Theyâre Off! or Are They?
The writ doesnât get dropped unÂtil toÂmorÂrow, so I know the OnÂtario genÂeral elecÂtion is not forÂmally unÂderÂway unÂtil then. NevÂerÂtheÂless, I canât shake the feelÂing that the ToÂries and the NDP were not quite ready for the camÂpaign.
KathÂleen Wynneâs camÂpaign, though, seemed to be firÂing on all cylinÂders when it hit the road runÂning on MonÂday. So what does this say about who knew what about when an elecÂtion would be called?
AnÂdrea HorÂwathâs New DeÂmocÂrats seem less ready than the other two main parÂties, which is a bit surÂprisÂing conÂsidÂerÂing it was she who trigÂgered the elecÂtion when she anÂnounced FriÂday that she would not supÂport the LibÂeralâs budÂget.
