Ontario's premier says voters will have a "stark" choice between her Liberal party and the Progressive Conservatives led by Doug Ford in the province's spring election.
Kathleen Wynne says Ford being made leader of the official Opposition this weekend won't change how her party plans for the June vote, pitching herself as the candidate ready to invest in people.
Ford won the Tory leadership late Saturday night, narrowly beating out former Tory legislator Christine Elliott, who did not initially concede.
Elliott issued a statement Sunday night saying that after a review of the vote she had concluded Ford won the race, noting that she will run for the Tories in the general election.
Ford has said he's focused on uniting the Tories and defeating Wynne.
Wynne noted that she and Ford were very different, and said her party will be focusing on policy in the weeks ahead.
