CBC's Poll Tracker shows the NDP ahead in the popular vote, but the party may have trouble translating that support into a majority of seats in the legislature.

Horwath said she would work with anyone if they supported some of the NDP's key platform points, such as returning Hydro One to public hands and creating universal pharmacare.

Horwath's own riding of Hamilton Centre is in the heart of Ontario's steel industry.

"I'm quite concerned about people in my own community, but I know there are many workers across our province and others across the country that are going to be very negatively impacted."

The NDP leader gave credit to Wynne for working with the federal government and building relationships with governors south of the border — something she said she would continue if elected premier.

But Horwath bristled at Wynne's suggestion that the NDP is too ideologically intractable to talk trade and tariffs with the U.S.

Horwath said she would be more than willing to build relationships with the U.S. to improve trade and create jobs in Ontario.

"I certainly know what the responsibility is of a premier, and I would undertake that responsibility with every opportunity to build relationships and create opportunity and jobs."
