ONT NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will become Premier of Ontario 2
With Hudak's swing to the extreme right and his direct attack on union rights, a victory for the NDP in Ontario becomes more important than ever. If Hudak wins the unions will be severely weakened under his right-to-work anti-union policies, which in turn will weaken the Ontario NDP's ability to fight future elections. A Hudak victory will also encourage other Con parties to mount similar attacks across the country. In response the Libs will shift further right while mouthing platitudes about correcting the worst problems created by the Cons (just like Chretien did with the Free Trade Agreement but instead doing nothing) since the Cons will have left them with plenty of room on the right of the spectrum.
