MacLeod: Wynne will do anything to 'cling to power'

Progressive Conservative MPP Lisa MacLeod says Premier Kathleen Wynne is prepared to do whatever it takes to remain in power in the dying hours of this election campaign.

"Instead of talking about her plan, Kathleen Wynne has tried to scare seniors and parents, young people and the disabled," said Lisa MacLeod. "The Liberals have gone above and beyond fear tactics. Even Dalton McGuinty never used language like this."

The Nepean-Carleton candidate told CFRA she is dismayed with the way the premier has painted Tim Hudak as dangerous and a threat to students and children with disabilities.

"The fact that she openly attacked my leader, who is a father of a special needs child, knowing full well that our deputy leader also has a special needs child really disappointed me, really made me think she would do anything to cling to power rather than to tell the truth and be honest with the public," she said.

She added a flyer circulated in the Vaughan riding that depicts Hudak as the Batman character the Joker, laughing as he walks away from an exploding hospital is one step too far.

MacLeod said she's proud of the clean election campaign her party has been running - Wynne has called the Joker flyer unacceptable and said it's not consistent with what her party has been doing throughout the campaign.

The Progressive Conservative Party has come under fire in recent days after voters in two ridings, including Ottawa-West Nepean, received letters sending them to the wrong polling station.

MacLeod said that was a mixup and they have apologized for the error.
