Kathleen Wynne says contrast between her and Doug Ford is 'stark'

Brother of Rob Ford Elected to Lead Conservatives in Ontario MPP Bill Walker says Ford can lead PCs to victory

With new Ontario PC leader Doug Ford in place, Conservative party members are beginning to focus on the June election for the premiership of Ontario. While Elliott received more of the more than 64,000 electronic ballots cast by party members, and was the leader after the first ballot, it was Ford who won enough of the riding associations to win the leadership on the third ballot.

"When he was in Sault Ste. In a race this close, largely determined by geography, someone needs to stand up for these members", Elliott said in her earlier statement.

The Ontario PCs had not yet arrived at a final tally of votes in their party's leadership race, despite the results originally being expected by 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

"We're going to spend the coming weeks getting the party in fighting shape, because the people of this province are ready for change".

Doug Ford (right) with Christine Elliott who conceded defeat on Sunday after initially disputing the results announced late Saturday, alleging "serious irregularities" in the voting. "To Kathleen Wynne, I say your days are numbered as premier".

Romano had supported Elliott's campaign for leadership, calling her the best choice for Northern Ontario.

Hartley Lefton, chair of the party's leadership election organizing committee, offered no details of the snag that delayed the announcement of the new leader by 4.5 hours and offered no timeline other than that the matter would be resolved "in the short term".

"We're moving forward on a united front", Ford said.

Unemployment rate in Albania shrinks
Since December 2010, Florida businesses have created almost 1.5 million jobs, which includes more than 144,000 in the a year ago . There was a loss of 1,100 in trade, transportation and utilities jobs and a loss of 1,000 in the "other services" category.


Ford was in Sault Ste. He was also present at Romano's victory party during last June's byelection.

Even as the rousing cheers were being sent up, Ford was already being described by the left-leaning Toronto Star, Canada's largest newspaper as a former Toronto city councillor and brother of late mayor Rob Ford, whose career was derailed by a crack-smoking scandal.

While campaigning in Northern Ontario recently, Ford has positioned himself as pro-Ring of Fire and pro-passenger train service. "We are going to bring a change and make this province the most prosperous province in the entire country". Marie. "It's going to be incentive, incentive, incentive and reduced taxes across the board".

He also vowed to cut government spending by four per cent and review school curriculum sex education.

"The pace of this Ontario PC leadership race has been rapid and there have been a number of unexpected turns along the way". "He was not the typical establishment (politician) and wanted to show he was not that typical establishment".

More than a thousand party members are gathered at the Markham Hilton Hotel and Convention Centre to hear the results.

"Meanwhile, the Ontario Liberals issued a statement suggesting Conservatives have gone back in time to pick the most conservative leader they could find". But the truth is that the one-member, one-vote online voting system for electing party leaders, which is used by Canadian political parties at all levels, is proving to have many drawbacks. It all came after a hasty campaign following the resignation of Patrick Brown following allegations of sexual misconduct. Brown later sued over those allegations and attempted to re-enter the race before again removing himself from contention.

A recent Global/Ipsos poll revealed healthcare, jobs and the economy, lower taxes and lower electricity rates are of most concern to Ontarians heading into the June provincial election.
