There was much hooting and hollering as Premier-designate Doug Ford presided over the Progressive Conservatives’ festive first caucus assembly.
OPINION: The premier-designate wants to scrap the sex-ed curriculum and has mused about rolling back abortion rights, writes Lauren McKeon. Is that how he’s going to “take back Ontario”?
In the wake of last week’s electoral shellacking, many within the party are saying the Grits strayed too far to the left.
OPINION: Analysts will be debating the reasons for the Liberals’ collapse for years to come, but one thing is clear — parties ignore voters’ pocketbooks at their peril, writes John Michael McGrath.
ANALYSIS: The Progressive Conservatives have promised to dismantle the pollution-pricing system — but doing that won’t be easy or cheap, writes Tim Alamenciak.
ANALYSIS: The Tories won big, and the NDP came second — but victory comes with downsides, and defeats with silver linings, writes John Michael McGrath.
The Tories win a majority government, the NDP becomes the official Opposition, the Liberals hang on to a handful of seats, and the Greens elect their first MPP.
Kathleen Wynne resigns as Liberal leader, the Greens get their first MPP, and Ontario will have its first Progressive Conservative government in 15 years.
Doug Ford becomes Ontario's 26th premier as Progressive Conservatives win majority.
The party leaders make their final pitches as voters head to the polls.
ANALYSIS: If the Liberals end up with fewer than eight MPPs after this week’s election, they risk losing their official status — and that could have serious consequences, writes John Michael McGrath.
