On Tuesday, May 21, Ontario New Democratic Party Leader Andrea Horwath announced that her party will support the Ontario Liberal Party’s provincial budget, thus averting an election.

According to a report by the CBC, Horwath made the announcement during a news conference at Queen’s Park.

“We are prepared to support this budget within a process that ensures the financial accountability office legislation is passed into law early this fall,” the CBC quoted Horwath as saying. “We will pass this budget based on the commitments this government has made and we will remain vigilant to ensure their promises are kept.”
