NDP be­comes of­fi­cial op­po­si­tion

StarMetro Toronto - - TORONTO -

An­drea Hor­wath may have been fight­ing to gain NDP seats in key rid­ings across the prov­ince — log­ging some 8,500 kilo­me­tres on her bus dur­ing the elec­tion cam­paign — but at home in Hamil­ton Cen­tre it was one easy bat­tle. The NDP leader, who has rep­re­sented the Hamil­ton area since 2004, won the rid­ing in 2014 with more than half of all votes cast, and Thurs­day night she was quickly de­clared the win­ner with an even higher mar­gin of vic­tory. At press time the On­tario NDP were lead­ing or elected in 39 rid­ings, plac­ing them squarely in the role of the of­fi­cial op­po­si­tion at Queen’s Park.
