Leaders campaign across southern Ontario a week before voting day

Decision Ontario: Tough questions with week to go until election
WATCH ABOVE: There is just a week until election day and backlash continues against Ontario PC Party Leader Doug Ford for backtracking on a key election commitment to present a fully-costed platform to voters. Alan Carter has more.

A week before Ontario residents head to the polls, the three main party leaders are looking for votes across the southern regions of the province today.

Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne takes her campaign to eastern Ontario, making an announcement in Orleans, visiting a cheese factory in St-Albert, and attending an evening barbecue in Belleville.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is stumping for votes in the GTA, where she’s scheduled an announcement and a campaign event in Toronto, before heading to Mississauga tonight where she’ll attend an Iftar dinner.
