Election Update

Ontario voters faced with two stark options in most ridings
With the Kathleen Wynne acknowledging over the weekend that the Liberals have no chance of winning, the election has become, more than ever, a choice between Doug Ford and the PC Party and Andrea Horwath and the NDP.  The collapse of the Liberal vote means there are a high number ridings where there is a tight race between the PC and the NDP candidates.

ETFO members can make difference by donating even an hour to a campaign.

Polls indicate PC and NDP tied for support
Overall the polls show the PCs and NDP statistically tied for voter support.

The polls don't necessarily predict who will actually vote, which means getting out the vote is the key to which party wins in the many ridings where there are tight races.

Do your part to get out the vote. Contact your ETFO local to find out how you can help.
