NewsAlert: Doug Ford elected in his riding of Etobicoke North

Ford only said he would talk to his team about the issue in the days and weeks to come. "I believe in the market dictating", he said in the interview. "We have begun work right away on setting up the premier's office, establishing a cabinet and implementing the machinery of a new government".

The rise of Ford Nation over so many obstacles was a seminal and seismic electoral event in and beyond Ontario.

But her weekend bombshell was followed by an appeal to elect as many Liberals as possible, a move she said at the time was meant to prevent either of her NDP or Progressive Conservative rivals from achieving a majority. The Green Party meanwhile, picked up its first ever seat in the province.

"But the biggest challenge that I think the provincial Liberals have is they're going to have to differentiate themselves from the New Democratic Party and I think quite frankly that was one of the issues (in the election)".

Each election cycle, we hear the reasons as to why people don't vote: 'I don't have time, ' 'I forgot, ' 'My vote doesn't matter anyway'.

Despite repeated promises, Ford never did release a detailed plan of where these cuts were going to be made or deliver a fully costed election platform. The party eventually published a list of promises and their price tags, but didn't indicate how they would pay for them, what size of deficits they would run or for exactly how long.

"For this year we've had 45,000 voters return a ballot at a drop box", Jarboe said.

People don't have to wait until election day to vote. Ford's stronger than expected showing and the Liberals' significant losses to the New Democrats may worry supporters of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's federal Liberal party, up for re-election in 2019.

Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump have exchanged tough words after the U.S. imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and Europe.

In his victory speech, Ford paid an emotional tribute to his younger sibling, saying: "I know my brother Rob is looking down from heaven". "I don't believe that this is part of the bandwagon or the trend that we're seeing in the USA, in Poland, in Hungary, in other countries in Europe".

A tearful Kathleen Wynne stepped down as Ontario's Liberal leader Thursday as the party she propelled to a majority government only four years ago was reduced to a skeleton crew, losing official status in the legislature.

Following the sitting of the legislature on Friday, he said he admired the leadership of defeated Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne but looked forward to getting to know the province's new premier. Christine Elliott, a relative moderate and former deputy leader who narrowly lost the party's leadership to Ford earlier this year, won her seat in the Toronto suburbs. "I feel very proud of the work that all of our candidates did across the province". They were the ones who needed better access to health care and child care, were strained under high electricity rates, or couldn't find affordable housing, she said.

Nevertheless, both comrades and opponents in government have taken to social media to thank her for her years of service as the Ontario Premier and for all she's done for the province.

There were many close races across the province, with eight determined by 25 votes or less: Ajax, Spadina-Fort York, Sault Ste.
