Ontario's elected representatives were headed home to their ridings Thursday as the legislature was set to begin an extra long summer break that will last until after the October federal election.

The legislature normally rises in early June and resumes shortly after Labour Day, but Premier Doug Ford's government adjourned the house until Oct. 28.

That's after the federal election, which NDP Leader Andrea Horwath thinks is the reason for the long break.

"The way I see it either Mr. Ford wants to be available to campaign for (federal Conservative Leader) Andrew Scheer, or Andrew Scheer's asking Doug Ford to hide under a rock during the federal campaign," she said.
