Kathleen Wynne, who has been premier since 2013 and whose Liberal Party has governed for 15 years, told reporters she will not be premier after the June 7 election.
"The more Liberal MPPs that we send to Queen's Park on June 7th, the less likely it becomes that either Doug Ford or the NDP will be able to form a majority government".
"If your concern is that you'd be electing me or electing a Liberal government, that's not going to happen", she said. "The reason is the strenght of the government's response and the kinds of things that Premier Wynne has done".
The Liberals have been trailing the NDP and PCs in the polls, and Wynne admits her party can not win the June 7th vote.

After disappointing prformances in Ottawa in recent provincial elections, Ontario PC leader Doug Ford says he is confident his slate of "all-star candidates" will turn the region blue.
"It became clear - and she conceded [that] - that she can not win the election".
"Kathleen Wynne has abandoned the fight against Doug Ford cuts". "They're hoping they can salvage (the party).it's about saying to people: don't abandon us".
"So I think electorally, it's strategic, but as a leader of a party, I actually think it's really selfless".
