Kathleen Wynne won her seat, but the Liberals lost official party status

Likewise, one of Canada's biggest anti-abortion organizations issued a statement celebrating the "end of Wynne's reign of terror" and adding they're "optimistic" Ford will "uphold his campaign promises to repeal and replace Kathleen Wynne's radical sex-ed curriculum as an "early priority" in his administration". They receive public money to establish party offices to help them with research and other organizational tasks. "This is the busiest time of year for schools with culminating activities, EQAO testing and exams, and more than 6,000 teachers have made Student Vote a priority", said Taylor Gunn, President and CEO of CIVIX.

A Liberal defeat was predicted by Wynne herself just days before the vote, as she admitted her party had such low support it would not form government again. "She asked Ontarians to embrace many initiatives very quickly and I think certainly in some sectors people pushed back". The majority of Liberal party MPPs were voted out after 15 years in power - Liberals only won seven seats.

She says there are more than 334,000 registered voters in San Joaquin County - roughly the same as during 2016's presidential election.

Participation increased by more than 60 per cent compared to the 2014 Ontario provincial election.

In Ottawa Centre, Attorney General Yasir Naqvi lost his seat, finishing second to New Democrat Joel Harden.

Ontario's new premier has previously voiced support for Donald Trump, but has dismissed direct comparisons to the USA president.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will be the leader of the official opposition in a radically changed legislature that will feature dozens of new Tory, New Democratic, and Green MPPs. Instead he saw Ford's victory as a rejection of the governing Liberals, who had steered the province to the left during their 15 years of rule.

Because, in actuality, as you'll see in the original listing of each party leaders' plans, Doug Ford and the Progressive Conservatives' housing plan was the only one that didn't require bullet points. "We owe so much to Rob's legacy - a legacy of service to the people, a legacy started by my father Doug Ford Sr. and a legacy that will continue".

Matt Damon’s cameo was cut from ‘Ocean’s 8’
The star was tagged on Twitter by fan with photo-grab of her scene from the movie on Friday when it released in US. And if you love the idea of seeing more women in prominent roles in movies, Ocean's 8 certainly pulls it off.

He predicted the ruling Liberal Party could drop below the eight seats needed to be recognised as an official party in the province's legislature.

Schreiner finished third in his riding in Guelph, Ont., during the last election, narrowly behind the Progressive Conservative candidate.

Wynne, Ontario's first female premier, said she would "absolutely" recommend the job to little girls, despite the difficulties of the role.

Like his brother Rob, known around the world for his admission of crack cocaine use while running Canada's largest city, Doug Ford has a combative, anti-establishment, not-fussed-with-policy approach that evokes comparisons to Trump.

There's no way around this one: Ford has led his party to a majority government, and he and his party will be calling the shots around Queen's Park for the next four years.

People are exhausted and resources are thin following the campaign, he said, and the party would do better to bide its time.

Horwath did not weigh in on whether the Liberals should be granted official party status anyway, as has been done for parties that fall short in the past.
