Ontario Tories launch another attack ad at Kathleen Wynne

Just one day after premier designate Kathleen Wynne won the Ontario Liberal leadership race, the Tories went on the offensive with a series of negative radio ads.

They've now 'upped the ante' with some visuals in a new web-ad.

It's the same message, just a different medium: the Tories are tying Wynne — who has been part of the Liberal government caucus since 2003 — to McGuinty's legacy.

Meanwhile, the province's NDP are trying another tack: on Monday, they launched their 'Get back to business' campaign.

From their website:

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath mapped out priorities for the spring Legislative session, laying out proposals to make life affordable, help seniors meet their healthcare needs and take a balanced approach to balancing the budget.

As the House gets ready to resume, Horwath put forward achievable ideas that will allow Ontario to focus on making life better for typical families while balancing Ontario’s books:

  • A home care guarantee that will ensure seniors receive home care service within 5 days
  • Giving the Financial Services Commission a mandate to reduce auto insurance rates by 15 per cent.
  • A commitment to find savings within the current fiscal framework while protecting the quality services Ontarians rely on

It seems to me that the Tories are getting ready to fight an election while the NDP are getting ready to cooperate with the minority Liberal government.

The legislature resumes sitting on February 19.
