NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is expected to attend the party's Sudbury nomination meeting Oct. 6 at the Steelworkers Hall. The NDP's fortunes in Sudbury have been on the rise since the party came within a few hundred votes of winning the riding in 2011. File photo.

"Today, I announced our plan to save you money by taking the HST off home hydro bills," Horwath said on her Facebook page. "It will save your family an average of $120 per year. Combined with our plan to end the Debt Retirement Charge, the Ontario NDP will save you nearly $200."

Horwath will join Cimino later for a rally downtown at the Best Western. The June 12 election in Ontario was called after Horwath decided not to support the Liberal's spring budget. Wynne has a minority government, and trails Hudak in the polls, followed by Horwath.

While still early, no party has yet emerged with enough support for a majority government. Ridings in Northern Ontario are largely held by the NDP or the Liberals, with the exception of Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli, a Tory.

Paula Peroni is running for the Tories in Sudbury, Andrew Olivier for the Liberals and Casey Lalonde for the Greens.
