Doug Ford has a new seat in the premier’s office at Queen’s Park.
The PC party won the Ontario election by dialling in to voters’ economic anxiety and anger with a scandal-plagued Liberal government.
The final tally shows the P-C’s won 76 ridings while the N-D-P under Andrea Horwath will form the Official Opposition with 40 seats.
The once-mighty Liberals were decimated and lost official party status by capturing 7 seven seats and their leader, Kathleen Wynne, won her Toronto riding but resigned as party leader.
The Green party won its first-ever seat at Queen’s Park when leader Mike Schreiner won a seat in Guelph.
Ford’s election promises included income tax cuts, cutting hydro bills, scrapping the sex-ed curriculum, opposing a carbon tax, cutting gas prices by 10 cents a litre and introducing buck-a-beer.
