TORONTO ─ Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has no regrets about giving a thumbs down to Kathleen Wynne's spring budget.

"Most Ontarians that I talk to, I would say virtually all Ontarians that I've talked to in this campaign, are not wanting to reward Liberal corruption, period," Horwath told a Toronto Sun editorial board Tuesday. "Ontarians are tired of that corruption and that's one of the factors frankly that I had in my head when I decided not to vote for that budget.

"When OPP came into Queen's Park to start pulling out hard drives that's when people told me enough was enough," Horwath said, referring to a police investigation into the possible destruction of public records just prior to Wynne's arrival in the premier's office last year.

Horwath spoke to senior editors as Wynne stepped up her campaign to draw in NDP voters, having compared Horwath and her pocketbook election platform to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
