CP exclusive: McGuinty rules out Liberal coalition with Tories or NDP
TORONTO - Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is ruling out a Liberal coalition in the event of a minority government after Thursday's election.
In a letter obtained by The Canadian Press, McGuinty tells Tory Leader Tim Hudak that he won't be making any deals to form a government.
The letter states categorically "there will be no coalition" with either the Tories or the New Democrats.
The latest polls indicate the Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives in a dead heat, raising the prospect of a minority government, with the NDP as kingmaker.
In his letter, McGuinty says his opponents are using talk of a minority as political ammunition.
Hudak has been accusing McGuinty of planning "backroom deals" with the New Democrats.
