Leader of the officiaL opposition
for the 60 per cent of voters who didn’t support Doug Ford, Andrea Horwath, the Steeltown-raised, scrapyard-tough opposition leader, is their best hope. After spending her entire Queen’s Park career in third place, Horwath returned from the political wilderness to capture nearly 2 million votes, 40 seats and official opposition status. She has put her enhanced power and elevated profile to good use. In July, she condemned Ford’s ham-fisted attempt to repeal the sex-ed curriculum, and when Ford introduced the bill to gut the size of city council, Horwath orchestrated a protest so loud and disruptive that the sergeant-at-arms had to escort her from the legislature. friends in
