Horwath is ending her day with what’s sure to be a barn-burning appearance at the Ontario Public Service Employees Union convention, at which she’ll likely decry the other parties as anti-organized labour and remind this union how closely it’s tied to the NDP historically. She’ll also have to fend off calls for strategic voting from people skittish at the thought of a PC win.
