TORONTO - Ontario's Throne Speech will make a strong appeal to opposition parties to put the rancour behind them and work on common priorities to avoid an early election.

The speech to be delivered by Lt.-Gov. David Onley on Tuesday will trumpet the three imperatives of new Premier Kathleen Wynne--jobs, support for the needy and keeping a tight lid on spending, a government official told the Toronto Sun.

Wynne believes that these priorities are shared by the opposition parties, the New Democrats and Progressive Conservatives, whose support will be crucial to keep the minority parliament alive.
