—In a press release issued earlier today, Horwath, the Ontario NDP leader, announced a deal with the Ontario Liberal party, putting an end to the possibility of an immediate provincial election. In exchange for not opposing the Liberal budget (and thereby toppling Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government) Horwath won a few concessions, including the establishment of a new Financial Accountability Office and a 15 per cent cut to car insurance premiums.
