New poll released – leaders react

According to a new poll by MQO Research, the Tories are holding relatively steady with 53% of the decided vote, the NDP have created some distance with 29% and the Liberals are slumping with 18%. NDP leader Lorraine Michael says that she is “encouraged” by the polls; PC leader Kathy Dunderdale says that the numbers are pretty stable as far as the PCs are concerned; while Liberal leader Kevin Aylward says he has total confidence in the number of seats they’re competitive in, and that the numbers will change and will likely go up and down as the campaign goes on.
