Canada’s Trump: populist Doug Ford stuns with Ontario election win

  • Campaign 2018: Election Guide

During the Ontario PC leadership race, Ford campaigned alongside McVety, explicitly promising social conservatives he'll "repeal" Ontario's sex-ed curriculum.

The most important priority is getting a look at the books, both internally and by bringing in the third-party auditing firm Ford promised on the campaign trail. They receive public money to establish party offices to help them with research and other organizational tasks.

Jarboe says as of Tuesday night, about 125,000 ballots had been processed from early voting.

Kathleen Wynne resigned shortly after the projections for her party were announced, which Bricker said was her only choice.

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.

There's no denying that many knew Kathleen wouldn't be taking home a win when she was dubbed the unlikable leader out of the 3 candidates. The majority of Liberal party MPPs were voted out after 15 years in power - Liberals only won seven seats. 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. The Liberals will have three MPPs at Queen's Park representing Ottawa, while the NDP holds one riding. "Together, we will continue to work to grow Ontario's economy and address issues of importance to Ontarians and all Canadians".

Throughout the campaign Ford's brand of populism prompted a slew of comparisons to Donald Trump, as the Canadian leader took aim at safe injection sites and opposed legislation to create protest-free zones outside abortion clinics.

"I'm excited, I've been given a new opportunity to fight for the people of Ontario", she told reporters.

An often controversial figure, Ford served on Toronto's city council along with his late brother, Rob Ford, the former mayor of Toronto who made global headlines after he admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

Leader Mike Schreiner was elected in Guelph.

Ford also rolled out several pledges designed with populist appeal in mind, from cutting gas prices by 10 cents a litre to introducing buck-a-beer to cutting hydro bills.

Wynne's own fate as an MPP was in doubt after she spoke, but close to 11:30 p.m., CBC declared she would hold her Don Valley West riding by fewer than 200 votes.

Wynne, Ontario's first female premier, said she would "absolutely" recommend the job to little girls, despite the difficulties of the role.

She said she had stayed focused on her campaign throughout and was looking forward to leading the official Opposition.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford repeatedly slammed Horwath's roster of candidates as radical and inexperienced.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford is thanking the people of Ontario for giving his party a majority government.

"Andrea Horwath projected a credible change agenda", Myer Siemiatycki, a political science professor at Ryerson University, said Thursday.

Doug Ford, the brother of the late controversial mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, has been elected premier of Ontario, Canada's most populous province.
