Ontario leaders target key ridings and issues with election one week away

TORONTO _ Ontario’s election is one week away, and the party leaders are focusing on key issues in key ridings.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will start her day in Brampton, where her party won three seats in 2018 and where she hopes to either retain or grow the NDP’s footprint in the vote-rich region.

She will be talking about a plan to end hallway medicine, then will travel to Kitchener and Fergus.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford will not be making any announcements or taking any media questions today, with his only scheduled event being a rally in Horwath’s home turf of Hamilton.
