Ontario election results 2014 Real-time results on election night

Party insiders have said Wynne's call was also an 11th-hour effort to hold on to official party status - eight seats are needed to do so.

While Mr. Ford's housing policies have not been fleshed out with details, many in the province's housing sector are hopeful the new government, elected on Thursday, will cut red tape and quicken the pace of development to increase housing supply.

As the results came in, Wynne, Ontario's first female premier as well as its first openly gay premier, announced that she would step down as party leader.

Liberal leader and former Premier Kathleen Wynne won her riding by just 181 votes, and resigned as party leader.

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

In the crowd, Trudi Lorenz expressed disappointment at the Progressive Conservative win, saying she had hoped the NDP would have at least been able to form a minority government.

Ford is a newcomer to provincial politics, having only captured the party leadership three months ago. Ford has denied the allegations, which have not been tested in court.

"We mailed out about 248,000 vote-by-mail ballot envelopes and we received about 54,000 in so far", Brandi Orth, Fresno County clerk registrar of voters, said. "We united our party and united our province and this is your victory".

They offered "common-sense" recommendations for public companies to improve governance and relations with shareholders. Several big companies like AT&T, Coca Cola, Facebook and UPS have stopped issuing quarterly earnings guidance.

"We have delivered a government that is for the people", said Ford, promising economic growth and prosperity in a speech to supporters in Toronto.

Horwath, 55, cast herself as the only way to stop Ford, warning voters that the bogeyman was determined to "make the rich even richer" and slash and burn any progress that's been made by finding his mythical $6 billion in government "inefficiencies".

In the 2016 primary, more than 5 million California residents, or almost 60 percent of the electorate, voted absentee.

He pointed as examples to Scarborough Guildwood, where Liberal Mitzie Hunter squeaked by PC Party candidate Roshan Nallaratnam by a mere 81 votes, as well as Wynne's narrow victory over PC Party candidate John Kieran. Blunt and combative with the media, Ford has drawn comparisons with U.S. President Donald Trump, although he has tried to appeal to voters in the immigrant communities that sway elections in many Toronto suburbs.

It was mission accomplished last night - and that made the considerable risks inherent in a Ford majority tolerable. He was a de facto deputy to his late brother, Mayor Rob Ford, who became notorious in 2013 when he admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in office.

Charles McVety's Facebook post on Doug Ford's win. Hard questions are one thing; petty attacks are another as more than one tried to lob Friday with a repeated focus on the lawsuit from the widow of Rob Ford and suggestions his government would be mired with "chaos". People waved party signs and embraced while they waited for Ford to arrive. Horwath also won in her electoral district of Hamilton Centre with 49 per cent of the vote.

Voter turnout was up significantly, to 58 per cent from about 51 per cent in the 2014 election. Meanwhile, Liberals from the party's more pro-business wing - like Steven Del Duca - were defeated last night. No wonder people weren't comfortable entrusting her to run the government.

However, Horwath had her own challenges when it was revealed that her election platform was improperly costed, several of her candidates had an online history of weird and offensive rants and some of her proposals like a Sanctuary Province would cause administrative and financing headaches.
