Andrea Horwath

Hamilton born and raised MPP and current Ontario NDP leader. Horwath gained the leadership of the Ontario NDP by deploying the suicidal slogan of “We will not adapt!” She then parlayed her approachable personality and single-parent identity into serious gains in the 2011 Ontario provincial election, mainly because her opponents, Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty resembled a shifty-eyed grin-while-speaking car salesman and Conservative Tim Hudak, spent the campaign as Mr. Bean with the famous Christmas turkey poised above his head while he shouted less-than-brilliant slogans like “elect me!”
