Ontario is going to the polls in June, and Canada 2020 – Canada’s leading, independent, progressive non-partisan think tank has invited all 3 candidates to speak in Ottawa for our #OnVotes Speaker Series.
Last in our series is Andrea Horwath, Leader of the Ontario NDP, who will address our audience on Friday, May 23rd in Ottawa.
Leader since 2009, Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP have driven much Ontario’s minority government agenda.
Yet to the surprise of many, her third-place party triggered a June election by opposing what many observers saw as a NDP-friendly budget tabled by Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals.
So far, her campaign has focused on addressing the priorities of middle-class families, as well as balancing Ontario’s books and streamlining government bureaucracy.
