I'm really undecided this time around. I'll have to read through the platforms a bit more closely.

I'm probably 90% sure - but it needs more thought and info before I could really answer

I know which parties I don't want to vote for. No idea who my actually vote will go to or if any of the 4 parties deserve it.

How badly would it skew the poll if I selected who I would vote for if I still lived in Ontario?

This election is a bit of a problem. The party I'd usually support (and probably still will) is pretty far from the ideal choice, but, I just don't trust the other 2 major parties for various reasons.

A vote for Hudak, a Harris protege, may translate into a setback vote for our province.  While removing the HST on select items such as on home heating bills (for those living at or below the poverty line) is a sound idea, I wouldn't trust the PC party with governing any better than McGuinty's Liberals.  For the simple reason that, a vote for the PC's may end up similar to the Ontario Harris years.  I simply do not trust anyone associated with the former Mike Harris Tories.  The Liberals are 'the lesser of the two evils', at least for the time being.

Whoever makes the most misleading and childish attack ad. I'm the ideal voter.

As we get more and more connected digitally.  I really feel that 1 of our 3 levels of government needs to be removed.  I think the removal of the provincial goverment would be the prime candidate.  More power needs to get to the regional governments to get what they need.  The provincial guys are just middle men.

I'm down for which ever party is willing to send hired goons overseas to get us our hwy 407 back. You know, that stretch of road we all paid for... that we're still paying for? Well, I'm not paying for it any longer out of principle but I'd sure like to start using it again.
