"We will not be plunging Ontarians into an election tomorrow."
In a press conference at Queen's Park on Monday afternoon, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath confirmed that the Liberals changed enough in the 2012 provincial budget to not vote against it on Tuesday.
Earlier in the day, Premier Dalton McGuinty noted that "transitional aid" for the horse racing industry was discussed but no further details were given.
In an interview with Bullet News on Monday evening, Welland's MPP Cindy Forster of the NDP said the agreement's details were not finalized at the time of the announcement this afternoon.
“There are no details at this point,” said Forster. “Hopefully, we’ll get those in the next couple of weeks.”
Forster also stated that the transitional aid would come as "one-time funding."
