Little progress on support for budget after Horwath, Hudak meet with Wynne

TORONTO – Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath didn’t have much to say about whether the province will be headed for the polls this spring after her 20-minute meeting with Premier Kathleen Wynne.

Horwath says she talked to Wynne about her demands for the budget, including a 15 per cent cut to auto insurance premiums.

But she didn’t say if Wynne gave her any indication that she’s willing to compromise to pass the budget.

Horwath repeated that if her party doesn’t get what she wants in the budget, the NDP will vote against it, which would trigger an election.

Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak says he had a meeting with Wynne too.

But he says there needs to be a change in government to fix Ontario’s financial problems.
