Horwath's NDP has put household expenses as their central policy plank for quite some time. Car insurance, gas and electricity bills, commuting costs, etc. It's frustrating because they stick with it even when it counters their other ideals - subsidizing heating is not environmentally sound.

To me, it feels like the left-wing reflection of Harper's boutique tax cuts... it violates all the high-minded principles of the party's intellectual elite, but at the same time it gets votes with the base, so they do it.

I have a feeling Wynne will keep her minority government simply because the OLP runs functionally unopposed. The only way I could see either opposition making real gains would be a change of leadership... the new Big City Business version of John Tory would probably clean up.
