With Kathleen Wynne admitting she'll lose, and the NDP and PCs tied in the polls, the Northern Ontario Party is hoping to elect enough MPPs to hold the balance of power in any minority government.
In a news release, NOP leader Trevor Holliday says, "It is now obvious that Ontarians will be electing the PCs or NDP into power and ideally a minority government, which would be great news for the people of Northern Ontario to hold the balance of power. This would happen with a vote for your Northern Ontario Party candidates who are dedicated and focused on Northern Ontario and their constituents first."
Holliday states that a chance to make Northern Ontario prosperous "may never happen again with this ideal opportunity voters are in. "
He attacks the PCs by asking, "Would you buy a car without an engine, any written inspection, or warranty? Then why would you vote for a party without a platform?"
And says of the NDP, "Would you vote for a party who cannot calculate their own plans with the mistake being in the BILLIONS?"
Holliday sees a window of opportunity for the NOP.
"Don’t make the mistake or settle on voting PC or NDP as you have seen what a majority government can and will do. Please vote and have your voices heard with a vote for the Northern Ontario Party to hold the balance of power. The people of Northern Ontario need to be heard and prosper like it had before Toronto even existed. We must not conform to the same way of voting that has caused our colonization for decades and lend your vote for a Real voice for Northern Ontario."
