"It’s time to elect a new Premier who gets it. I get that the middle class is being squeezed.

I will create jobs by supporting small businesses. I’ll give families a break on their hydro bills and auto insurance. I will rebuild trust with voters with accountability measures to stop waste and scandal. It’s time for change that makes sense."

—Andrea Horwath, Leader, Ontario's NDP

I grew up in Hamilton.

My dad was an immigrant. My mom's family lived here for generations. My whole family worked. My sister and my brothers and I all took any job we could find. Once in a while we'd pack lunch in a green cooler and head to the beach.

We were okay. My mom would stretch every dollar, count every penny.

I paid my way through university by waiting tables.

When I graduated, I wanted to give back.

I became a community organizer at Hamilton's east-end legal aid clinic.

When my city went through tough times, I did everything I could as a Councillor to fight for small businesses, to keep schools open, to revitalize the downtown, and to create jobs.

And we've made progress. For Rent signs are coming down. Mom and pop stores and young entrepreneurs are creating new jobs. And it’s working.

We can rebuild Ontario with a plan that makes sense.
