Ontario’s New Democrats have affirmed Andrea Horwath’s leadership.

More than 85 per cent of delegates to the Ontario NDP convention gave the long-time leader the green light ahead of June’s provincial election.

Per the party’s constitution, delegates at each convention vote by secret ballot to either support the current leader or hold a leadership contest.

Horwath has been at the party’s helm since 2009.
