Fresno County prepares for primary day Tuesday

Doug Ford campaigning in Sault Ste.

In the crowd, Trudi Lorenz expressed disappointment at the Progressive Conservative win, saying she had hoped the NDP would have at least been able to form a minority government.

Ford has said getting rid of the Ontario's cap-and-trade system to lower carbon emissions will be high on his government's agenda.

"We mailed out about 248,000 vote-by-mail ballot envelopes and we received about 54,000 in so far", Brandi Orth, Fresno County clerk registrar of voters, said.

Once the audit is complete, Ford said he planned to address numerous promises he made during the election campaign, including lowering taxes, cutting hydro rates, and eliminating the cap-and-trade system.

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

Ford was frequently accused during the election campaign of failing to be transparent by dodging calls to release a fully costed platform. "I do think there's a bit of spillover from populism in the United States that could have washed over the Ontario election", said Jonathan Rose, a professor at Queen's University. "The courts are going to determine that the federal government has the authority to do what it is doing".

After the initial shock, they could take solace in the NDP's increased fortunes: They're now the official opposition with an expectation that they've doubled their 21 seats, including many in Toronto.

Rafael tried to go for a guillotine, but Covington got out of it easily. "It means a lot for my legacy", admitted Dos Anjos. This matchup could actually end up ugly for either fighter, depending on the range at which it's fought .

With about a third of Canada's population of 36 million, Ontario is Canada's economic engine and home to its biggest city, Toronto. In the 2014 election, 173,072 votes were reported from 1,388 schools. Even though it's down 0.6 per cent quarter-to-date, it's still the best performing currency among 16 major peers tracked by Bloomberg. There were massive changes made to the provincial governing powers and massive losses to the Liberal party. Ford took 76 seats in the province, the NDP 39, and Wynn's Liberals 7 seats, the latter one short of maintaining recognized party status.

And a court-launched family feud, which raised a lot of pertinent questions about the leader, can bomb the campaign trail and not leave a pothole in support. Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner captured the party's first-ever seat in Ontario. This campaign has been as left wing as they come, a veritable socialist plethora of spend, spend, spend promises: free drugs, free childcare, free dental care, renationalize Hydro One.

But he's the overwhelming Ontario voters' choice and nobody has the right to declare them wrong until proven otherwise.

"There's a bit of uncertainty in terms of what's actually going to get implemented and how it's going to get financed", said Paul Ferley, assistant chief economist at the Royal Bank of Canada.

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.

Ford, 53, is the brother of the late mayor of Toronto Rob Ford, who made global news in 2013 when he admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

On the morning after the night before, Premier-designate Doug Ford - while the chattering classes and assorted other leftist teat-suckers were busy licking their wounds - made it clear he'd already gotten down to business. I've never put that one to the test, mostly because I've never encountered any sort of a wait, but I'll see if I can push it this time.
