Doug Ford won the Ontario Election, majority government for Conservatives

TORONTO –  Second majority government for Doug Ford and the Conservative Party in the Ontario provincial elections: the outgoing premier and his party won the majority with 83 seats, followed by Andrew Horwath’s NDP (31) who was however re-elected and by the Liberals of Steven Del Duca (8) who, instead, was defeated in his seat. The leader of the Greens, Mike Schreiner, was elected in the Guelph riding. The premier’s nephew, Michael Ford, managed to get himself elected by storming the Liberal-Ndp stronghold of York South – Weston.


Doug Ford aims to form a majority government

TORONTO – A majority government of the Progressive Conservative, just like in 2018. This is the most likely scenario, six weeks before the provincial vote, according to the projections of the seats elaborated by the specialized website 338canada.com, which analyzes the level of consensus of the parties in the race in view of the appointment at the polls on June 2nd. According to the data examined, if it were to vote at this time the party led by outgoing Prime Minister Doug Ford would win 71 of the 124 seats available, well above the 63 necessary to guarantee an absolute majority of deputies in Queen’s Park: four years ago the Progressive Conservative won in 76 constituencies. 


Elections, the Liberals win. The counting of votes continues: minority or majority government?

TORONTO – With numerous polling stations still in the counting phase, Justin Trudeau’s victory in the federal elections is already clear. These are the percentages as we write (around 10.30 pm): Liberals 37.5%, Conservatives 32.8%, NDP 16.2%, Bloc Quebecois 5.5%, People Party 4.7%, Green 2, 5%. At the moment, the Liberals would not have the seats for a majority government (they are stuck at 144 against 117 for the Conservatives) but the results of many seats are still lacking.
