NDP Leader Andrea Horwath appealed to traditional Liberal voters on Friday, saying they should choose her party if they want to avoid a Doug Ford government.
The strategic voting pitch comes as polls suggest Ontario's next premier will either be Horwath or Ford.
"As we get closer and closer to Thursday, it's becoming very apparent that the new premier is either going to be Mr Ford or me. And what I am saying to all voters is, if you're interested in having that positive, hopeful future, then please consider joining us," Horwath said during a campaign stop in Don Valley West.
The Toronto riding is where Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne is running to keep her seat in the Legislature.
Horwath says she gets a sense from her team "on the ground" that people want change, and after Thursday's election the government will look different than it has in the past two decades.
"It doesn't matter if its a Conservative held riding in the past, or a Liberal held riding in the past, in both scenarios, our candidates and our campaign volunteers are saying, 'we need some help because there's something rolling here and we need to take advantage of it," Horwath continued.
The NDP leader is making her strong push for Liberal ridings with less than a week left in the campaign.
