Both Ford and Legault espouse more right-leaning beliefs, though Legault has been characterized as more of a centrist politician. By 9:15 p.m., the CTV News Decision Desk declared a majority for the PCs.

Ford ran primarily on making promises that involved cutting taxes for people. And now the party faces serious financial woes: the PCs will now be writing the provincial budget, and they're committed to eliminating the per-vote subsidy the Liberals introduced in 2016.

"My friends, together in 88 short days we achieved the impossible", Ford said. Ford has said he would launch an independent inquiry into the previous government's books. Ford had spent the first few hours of the evening before the polls closed at his mother's home with his wife Karla, mother Diane and daughters watching the returns come in.

But for progressives who lent their support to the NDP in Thursday's election - one in three voters - the election of a Doug Ford government may be the worst of times.

"She is a woman of considerable quality, I would say", said Couillard.

"I know that my brother Rob is looking down from heaven", Doug Ford said.

Charles McVety's Facebook post on Doug Ford's win. 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.

While there was a clear thirst for change in Ontario, the Liberals could still win in Quebec, said Stéphanie Chouinard, an assistant professor of political science at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ont. "We owe so much to Rob's legacy".

"Ontarians have chosen to elect a majority government led by the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party", said Justin Trudeau.

Less than a week ago, Wynne conceded that she knew her party could not win the election.

The Conservatives have 76 seats, the NDP 40, the Liberals 7 and the Green party 1.

Wynn announced she was stepping down as leader soon after.

Federal Liberals have said that carbon pricing is a key part of driving an economic policy that encourages clean jobs and cleaner forms of energy.

"I've spoken to him and I wish him well", Wynne said. Continuing to find ways to make it all work better.

I'm pretty sure that didn't happen once during what pro-family leaders are calling the five-year-long "reign of terror" of lesbian premier Kathleen Wynne. She was elected in 2014, following the resignation of then-premiere Dalton McGuinty and became the first female premier and the first openly-gay premier in Canadian history.

Despite the fact that Toronto showed a sharp division between support for the PCs and the NDP, Mayor John Tory was quick to congratulate Ford and to point to points of commonality.

"I want to congratulate Doug Ford and his team on their election tonight", Tory said in a statement.

"As Mayor, I have focused on building strong relationships and partnerships with all levels of government that have led to historic investments".
