TORONTO - New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath is making one last big push to gain votes in southern Ontario with a packed day that will take her from Niagara Falls to Oshawa.

Horwath says she's not about to put her feet up with one day to go, adding she wants to keep her campaign's momentum going until the last minute.

She says voters in Ontario should follow the lead of those of Manitoba who made a "smart choice" by choosing the NDP in that province's election on Tuesday.

There are no last-minute tricks or promises to win votes from Horwath, who believes her message of change and affordability is getting through.

A high turnout in advance polls and lots of motivated young voters, she adds, are keeping her optimistic that enough people will get out and vote.

Horwath has an ambitious eight-stop schedule, Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak is making six stops between Toronto and Brantford, and Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty -- ahead in a new poll -- has just three stops planned.
