Wynne hopes Ford gives Liberals party status

Wynne hopes Ford gives Liberals party status

Her decision to step down did not come as a surprise - last weekend she stood before reporters and conceded that Ontario would have a new premier after the election.

"Together we have made history".

Ford, 53, is the brother of the late mayor of Toronto Rob Ford, who made global news in 2013 when he admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

"I know that my brother Rob is looking down from heaven", Doug Ford said.

In a web video shot in February and offered up by the Liberal government, Ford rightly talks about the need for more housing.

"I look forward to working with the new provincial government to create good, middle class jobs, make Ontario a world-leading centre for innovative and sustainable technologies, and build infrastructure that meets the needs of Ontarians".

Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford.

"Tonight, the people of Ontario have spoken", Ford said in a speech celebrating his victory with supporters in Toronto, which was aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

While it might just be an oversight on his part, he did take the time to tweet out a congratulations to Doug Ford on his win.

Campaign 2018: Election Guide

Based on early voting, turnout in San Mateo County is about 35 percent, Church said.

But he pointed to different underlying reasons.

The election has also marked a stunning collapse for the Liberals, who governed the province for the last 15 years.

His center-right Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario won the election Thursday nightfrom the Liberal Party of Canada with 41 percent of the vote, taking 76 of 124 seats in the province, according to local media. In style, his campaign took a page from that of Donald Trump, emphasizing the leader over the party. Wynne, the first female premier and first openly gay premier the province has had, said she would resign as leader of the Liberal party.

"The NDP has been flogging their carbon tax now for the past two years, spending, I think, $9 million tax dollars promoting it to Albertans", Kenney said. 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. But the dizzying pace of initiatives rolled out by Wynne's government might have also played a role, said de Clercy, citing a rise in the minimum wage and reforms in workplace legislation and education.

Almost every Liberal cabinet minister was defeated, including Yasir Naqvi, Charles Sousa, Glenn Thibeault, Steven Del Duca, Kevin Flynn, Eleanor McMahon and Chris Ballard. Only one Democratic primary is to be decided, in the 1st District U.S. House race.

For a few short weeks, Andrea Horwath appeared tantalizingly close to the Ontario premier's office - a prize that proved elusive once again on Thursday for the veteran politician who has led the provincial New Democrats for nearly a decade.

There are two big firsts as well, with the Green party electing a candidate for the first time.

New Democrats were granted some accommodations at the time, including some funding, and earned party status the following year when leader Andrea Horwath won a byelection. Relatively few Tory MPPs in their newly elected caucus have any experience in cabinet (though there are some), and they're quickly going to learn the difference between vague, uncosted electoral promises and the brass-tacks accounting reality that's required of the country's second-largest finance ministry to consume the next four years. "It's worth remembering Mr Ford is a total rookie".
