Regional Tories Win Majority Government News Centre News

The premier-designate, who secured a majority a day earlier with a slew of populist promises, said his first order of business would be to scrutinize the province's books.

Kenney, she added, must be cautious when signalling he will join Ford to combat the federal government's carbon tax because the move could backfire since it is viewed as part of a broader environmental plan that has generated greater support for the Trans Mountain pipeline.

Wynne admitted last weekend that her party would lose the election, but urged supporters to vote for her candidates to prevent her rivals from winning a majority.

Led by Andrea Horwath, the NDP earned 34% of the vote.

He said: "I think it's good for tourism".

Closer to home, UCP Leader Jason Kenney offered his congratulations to fellow conservative Ford. They receive public money to establish party offices to help them with research and other organizational tasks.

"People are really getting the hang of this vote-by-mail system", said Sacramento County's Interim Registrar of Voters Alice Jarboe.

The Liberals appear to have lost party status, with only 7 members elected.

Liberal heavyweights like Finance Minister Charles Sousa, Labour Minister Kevin Flynn, Environment Minister Chris Ballard, Health Minister Helena Jaczek and Economic Development Minister Stephen Del Duca all went down to defeat.

Wynne has declined to say whether she'll stay on as party leader, but many expect her to step down.

Participation increased by more than 60 per cent compared to the 2014 Ontario provincial election.

In Guelph, Mike Schreiner made history becoming the first Green Party candidate to win a seat in an Ontario election. "I know Rob is celebrating with us tonight".

The election is a surprising upset for the Liberal Party; 53-year-old Ford is a political rookie, having assumed leadership of the Progressive Conservative party just three months ago.

While the election was called just 15 minutes after polls closed, with a PC majority government, the rest of the tallying was a nail-biter for the Liberals.

Ford has promised to lower taxes, spend C$5 billion on the subway in Toronto and cut some C$6 billion from the provincial budget without eliminating jobs. "We owe so much to Rob's legacy - a legacy of service to the people, a legacy started by my father Doug Ford Sr. and a legacy that will continue".

Being a recognized party in the legislature allows parties to have an office for their leader and access resources such as research assistance, but the threshold required for the designation can be changed by legislators, as has been in the past.

Ford won his seat in Etobicoke North, and Horwath held her seat in Hamilton Centre, where she has served as an MPP since 2004.

He has been elected premier of Ontario.

Her New Democrats saw a surge in the polls halfway through the campaign, triggering a wave of attacks from both the governing Liberals and the opposition Tories.

Charles McVety, an anti-gay preacher who runs an organization that promotes homophobic conspiracy theories, told his Facebook followers that the election results show God "heard our prayers and delivered victory for the sake of our children".

People are exhausted and resources are thin following the campaign, he said, and the party would do better to bide its time. If you want to vote by mail and have not yet registered, that needs to happen by Tuesday, June 12. Some electors may be voting in a different location or electoral district for this election.
