Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives win majority in Ontario

Ontario appears poised for significant political change Ontario appears poised for significant political change

"I look forward to working with Premier-elect Doug Ford and his government as well as with Sudbury MPP-elect Jamie West and Nickel Belt MPP-elect France Gélinas for the growth, prosperity and enhanced quality of life for the residents of Greater Sudbury".

Like his brother Rob, known around the world for his admission of crack cocaine use while running Canada's largest city, Doug Ford has a combative, anti-establishment, not-fussed-with-policy approach that evokes comparisons to Trump.

There's no way around this one: Ford has led his party to a majority government, and he and his party will be calling the shots around Queen's Park for the next four years.

Despite those polls, Couillard said Quebec Liberals will, come Quebec's general election on October 1, have "the best team" and a "considerably renewed team". "I know Rob is celebrating with us tonight". Technically speaking, the party's constitution requires that NDP members vote on whether she should stay on as party leader at their next general convention, but it's hard to imagine Horwath going anywhere until after the next election, given last night's success.

Ontario premier-designate Doug Ford smiles as he enters the room to speak with the media after winning the Ontario Provincial election in Toronto, on Friday, June 8, 2018. "I want to thank everyone", Ford said as he emerged from the basement of his mother's Etobicoke home where his family had been watching the results earlier in the evening.

A Liberal defeat was predicted by Wynne herself just days before the vote, as she admitted her party had such low support it would not form government again.

The Green Party made history with Mike Schreiner's runaway win in Guelph, resulting in its first seat in Ontario.

The Tories have won a majority government.

It's unlikely the NDP would support loosening the rules around party status considering they were denied a similar reprieve under the Liberals in 2003, Malloy said.

But the dizzying pace of initiatives rolled out by Wynne's government might have also played a role, said de Clercy, citing a hike in the minimum wage and reforms in workplace legislation and education as examples.

Unofficial results now indicate that 58 per cent of eligible voters in the province cast their ballot, including those who voted by mail, at returning offices, in hospital, through home visit, during advance voting and on election day. Jim Bradley, who had held the riding of St. Catharines for the Liberals for 41 years, was also defeated.

Former Liberal cabinet minister John Milloy, now a professor of public ethics at Wilfrid Laurier University, said the last thing the party should do is rush to select a permanent leader. Most of the Grit MPPs left standing, shell-shocked as they may be, were recruited during Wynne's tenure - and they still feel substantial personal loyalty to and fondness for her, and agree with her vision of the party. She inherited a government already rife with billion-dollar scandals, but under her leadership more fuel was added to the fire, such as rising hydro bills and questionable government spending.
