It’s the second official day of the Ontario election campaign. Here’s where the party leaders are travelling.
Tim Hudak begins in the northern Greater Toronto Area, visiting a residential construction site at 9:15 a.m. with local candidate Peter Meffe in Vaughan (Riding: Vaughan). Then he heads southwest to Conestoga College in the afternoon then on to a big evening town hall “to provide more specific details about the PC Million Jobs Plan,” the centrepiece of their campaign (Riding: Kitchener-Conestoga). He is joined by Tory candidates Michael Harris (Kitchener-Conestoga), Rob Leone (Cambridge), Wayne Wettlaufer (Kitchener Centre), and Tracey Weiler (Kitchener – Waterloo).
