Advance polls will be available through June 6, and registered voters can find poll locations printed on Notice of Registration Cards.

On Friday, Tories said the Liberal government’s decision to bail out a real estate project in downtown Toronto could cost Ontario taxpayers more than the $1.1-billion gas plants scandal.

Wynne says the deal to bailout the real estate developer and charity behind MaRS was not made public because it hasn’t been finalized.

Hudak said voters need to keep the MaRS project in mind when they go to the polls on June 12.

Wynne, meanwhile, said all Ontarians will have guaranteed access to around-the-clock primary health care by 2018, if her are re-elected.
