Ontario will hold a provincial general election on 12 June. The election was called after the NDP declared it was unwilling to back the minority Liberal government’s budget, as it had done with the previous budgets since the 2011 election.
All parties have been gearing up for this showdown for a while. CBC has a preview. As of today, the ThreeHundredEight vote and seat projection has a narrow lead for the Progressive Conservatives in the vote, but a tie in seats for the PCs and Liberals, with 43 each and 21 for the NDP. Current party standings are Lib 48, PC 37, NDP 21, with the NDP having gained a net four since the 2011 election via by-election wins.
