Ontario election debate: The best (and worst) from the leaders

Here's a taste of the highs and lows of the Ontario election debate

OurWindsor.Ca

NDP LEADER ANDREA HORWATH

STRONGEST ATTACK LINE: “You don’t have to put up with a corrupt Liberal government …. the corruption in Liberal Party runs deep.”

GREATEST EXAGGERATION: Promising a “15 per cent reduction” in auto insurance premiums when the Financial Services Commission of Ontario says 6 per cent has already been achieved.

BEST ZINGER: “Your tough medicine is certainly not Buckley’s. It tastes awful but it’s not gonna work.” (To Hudak)

CHEESIEST LINE: “What we don’t need is the same old, same old.”

MOST REPEATED PHRASE: “You had a choice.” (To Wynne on gas plants)

LIBERAL LEADER KATHLEEN WYNNE

STRONGEST ATTACK LINE: “Tim would have walked away from the auto sector.”

GREATEST EXAGGERATION: “We are going to get rid of the deficit by 2017-18.”

BEST ZINGER: “Mr. Hudak’s Million Job Plan is based on a completely flawed premise.”

CHEESIEST LINE: “I know that people are still angry” about the gas plants.

MOST REPEATED PHRASE: “I have apologized for a government that made wrong decisions.”

PC LEADER TIM HUDAK

STRONGEST ATTACK LINE: “If somebody apologizes and they do the same thing again and again and again, they didn’t mean it. They are simply going to do it one more time.”

GREATEST EXAGGERATION: “If I don’t keep my promise on my job plan I will resign.”

BEST ZINGER: “Ms. Wynne said it’s a mistake like it’s some sort of parking ticket.” (on the gas plant scandal)

CHEESIEST LINE: “I am not going to be the best actor on the stage tonight.”

MOST REPEATED PHRASE: “My plan is a Million Jobs Plan.”
