Led by Doug Ford, Ontario's Progressive Conservatives have secured a majority government, CBC News projects, ending nearly 15 years of Liberal power in the province.

Ford won his seat in Etobicoke North, the symbolic heartland of 'Ford Nation.' While results are still pouring in, the PCs have significant gains in the 905 region and the GTA, areas that are critical to the political landscape in Ontario.

How much do political platforms influence the outcomes of elections?

  How much do political platforms influence the outcomes of elections? “An election,” Kim Campbell infamously said during the 1993 federal election campaign, “is no time to discuss serious issues.” Her Progressive Conservatives were decimated in the vote that followed — a fact some blame in part on her statement. But experts are split on whether she was right.

Several Liberal cabinet ministers have lost their seats, including Yasir Naqvi and Glenn Thibeault.

Last weekend, Wynne took the extraordinary step of admitting publicly that she would not be Ontario's premier after the vote. Conceding defeat, she encouraged voters to elect Liberals to ensure the next government is kept "in check."

Ford, unaccustomed to the scrutiny that a provincial campaign draws, faced down multiple controversies and alleged scandals.

Three days before the election, the widow of his late brother, former Toronto mayor Rob Ford, sued the Tory leader. The suit claims Ford withheld money from her and her two children, and that Ford's Toronto- and Chicago-based businesses are bleeding money.

    OTTAWA - The Conservatives say they will force the House of Commons to sit all night tonight if the government doesn't agree to produce an analysis of how much its carbon price is going to cost Canadian families. Finance critic Pierre Poilievre says it's his goal to make the government feel "as uncomfortable as possible." With the Conservatives feeling emboldened by the Ontario election win for Doug Ford, who campaigned on a promise to get rid of that province's cap-and-trade system, Poilievre is tabling a motion demanding the Liberals produce documents on the cost by June 22.
