Ontario’s new premier isn’t sure if he’ll go to Toronto Pride

Ontario’s new premier isn’t sure if he’ll go to Toronto Pride

She was premier for five years and the Liberals had been in power for 15 years.

Straight-laced Scheer got a taste of that earlier this week when he was asked how he feels about being associated politically with someone who allegedly dealt drugs in his youth and whose family members, notably late Toronto mayor Rob Ford, have struggled with drug addiction.

"I think its important", she said. I wouldn't be running today if it wasn't for her &what she's built in this province.

Ford only said he would talk to his team about the issue in the days and weeks to come.

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.

Every party and every leader in Canada ignores the strategy behind the result at their political peril.

The party will face financial challenges, both in and out of the legislature, which the loss of party status will aggravate, he said. The crowd booed again when news came that Horwath won her Hamilton riding.

"I don't really see why the NDP would want to give anything to the Liberals now...memories are long in politics", Malloy said. The Ontario Liberal seat count dropped from 58 in 2014 to seven after Thursday's election. She inherited a government already rife with billion-dollar scandals, but under her leadership more fuel was added to the fire, such as rising hydro bills and questionable government spending.

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

"Maybe it was just a rookie mistake", she said. I look forward to seeing you deliver positive change.

"The key question for several of these races is not who the victor is, but who the number two is", said Jack Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College. "I'm getting chills talking about him right now".

"I could see them choosing ... the middle option - someone who's going to carry the ball for a while and then you sort of have a convention closer to the next election, in a couple of years, where you could actually showcase someone".

She had spoken to all Liberal candidates leading up to election night.

"You can't sugar-coat this one. we are committed to pricing carbon, period, end of story".

Either way, the party will need to be creative to shore up excitement on a shoestring budget, he said, noting the upcoming federal election will provide an opportunity to capitalize on the federal party's brand and keep Liberal flames alive.

Despite failing to win government, Horwath's position is likely safe, experts said.

Former Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne acknowledges her supporters following the election results in Toronto on Thursday, June 7, 2018.

In Haldimand-Norfolk, there are nine hopefuls on the ballot: incumbent Toby Barrett (PC), Danielle du Sablon (NDP), Anne Faulkner (Green), Wasyl Ivan Luczkiw (Multicultural Party of Ontario), Dan Matten (Liberal), Dan Preston (None of the Above), Carolyn Ritchie (Paupers), Thecla Ross (Freedom), and Christopher Rosser (Libertarian). Here's a look at what that means.

"My main focus is the economy, is making sure we create jobs and have this province thrive". The bar is now eight seats.

Is the eight-seat threshold a hard rule? But that threshold can be changed by legislators, as has been in the past.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford is thanking the people of Ontario for giving his party a majority government.

What are the benefits of official party status? The Legislative Assembly Act states that official parties can use those funds for research, staff salaries and other purposes the party caucus determines.
