In battle between Wynne and Hudak, NDP bumped to sidelines

In its first two weeks, Ontario’s election campaign has been a clear battle between two vastly different and equally bold visions for the province.

In one corner, Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne is pledging a new provincial pension plan and ramped up spending on everything from transit to social programs. In the other, Tim Hudak’s Progressive Conservatives are promising to cut both taxes and public sector jobs in a bid to swiftly kill the deficit and rev up private sector investment.
