So, polls have closed here in Ontario for the election that NDP leader Andrea Horwath forced (and summarily lost) by defeating the proposed Liberal budget. She and Tim Hudak’s PCs basically sealed their fates by defeating a good provincial budget with huge set0asides for public transit and adhering to a platform that literally nobody wanted, respectively. And guess what? According to the latest numbers, provided by the Globe in the handy-dandy Twitter link at the top of this post, they shot themselves in the foot and… allowed a Liberal majority to form. Good job, NDP and PC!
Latest numbers pin the Liberals at 58 seats (majority mandate here in Ontario requires 54), the PCs at 28 and the NDP at 21. Good riddance, fascist Conservatives.
