TORONTO - Ontario's three major party leaders have been campaigning since last week, but the buses officially hit the road today as they seek votes in the June 12 provincial election.

Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne visits businesses in Kitchener and Brampton and helps open a campaign office in Ottawa.

Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak plans to visit businesses in Mississauga, Burlington and Brantford today.

New Democratic Party Leader Andrea Horwath has two events in Toronto, followed by a campaign stops in Kitchener and Niagara Falls.

There was some controversy Tuesday over the use of images from Russia in a Progressive Conservative election TV ad promoting job creation in Ontario.

Hudak didn't immediately comment, but a party spokesman said he had no idea where the footage came from but defended the commercial as current practice.

Will Stewart, the party's media director, said it was the way advertising works in the 21st century, and accused the Liberals of playing "gotcha" politics by planting the story.

Wynne didn't immediately comment but a party spokesperson called the Tories' claim "baseless and totally false."

Horwath said she had not seen the commercial and refused to discuss it.

Wynne pulled the plug on the legislature last Friday when the New Democrats said they'd join the Tories in rejecting her minority government's budget.

Yawn. yawn.

Wake me up when the lying ends. How much are the libs promising this go around and when will the fairy godmother touch ground?

Thunder Bay has to come to grips with the day that the out of control spending stops. I know it will come as a shock to the liberal faithful, but the credit card will max out.

The spending orgy will end and the debts will be called in, sooner or later. Our children and grandchildren will thank us (or not) for the debts owing.
