Populist Doug Ford set to win Ontario polls, promises prosperity

But unlike the 2011-14 minority Liberal government, where the third-place New Democrats held the balance of power, the party will have nearly no influence on the majority Tory government this time.
His election promises included income tax cuts, scrapping the updated sex-ed curriculum and opposing a carbon tax.
He says the Conservatives will turn the province around, adding it is a day of prosperity and opportunity. But that threshold can be changed by legislators, as has been in the past. It's official - the New Democrats now form the "official Opposition" at Queen's Park.
Schreiner won his seat in Guelph, making him the first Green MPP in the province's history.
At press time, the PCs had won or were leading in 71 ridings, an increase of 45 seats from 2014.
"I continue to feel optimistic about the future and I will be focusing on areas of common alignment with the new Progressive Conservative Government and Premier Designate Doug Ford".
But Ford's campaign certainly wasn't immune to controversy.
With about one week left in the campaign, the party published a list of promises and their price tags, but didn't indicate how they would pay for them, what size of deficits they would run or for exactly how long.
Ford spent most of his career running the family label business, and also served a term on Toronto's city council.

Four U.S. service members were killed in a militant ambush in the west African nation of Niger in October. The terrorist group al-Shabaab, the local al-Qaeda affiliate, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
"You fought a very hard campaign and I can tell you Ontario is better for it", Ford said.
"(He's) someone who is new to the provincial arena, who isn't totally familiar with the ways of the legislature", she said. But Clement said the election showed that many people didn't agree with that assessment.
Both men have also been described as populists and compared to U.S. President Donald Trump by their political rivals.
He was first thrust into the national spotlight because of his defences of his scandal-plagued brother, whose admission of using crack cocaine made worldwide headlines.
In some ways, Ford's win echoes the rise of populism in countries such as Poland, Hungary and Italy, said Ian Lee, a professor at Carleton University. "I know Rob is celebrating with us tonight. We have taken back Ontario, we have delivered a government that is for the people".
The crowd of Tory supporters at the Toronto Congress Centre erupted into cheers as a Progressive Conservative majority was called. "Andrew Scheer, the leader of the federal Conservatives has said we've got to have a good policy that is distinctive from Justin Trudeau's policy on climate pricing and climate change".
The election has also marked a stunning collapse for the Liberals, who governed the province for the last 15 years.
Liberal heavyweights like Finance Minister Charles Sousa, Labour Minister Kevin Flynn, Environment Minister Chris Ballard, Health Minister Helena Jaczek and Economic Development Minister Stephen Del Duca all went down to defeat. He takes the over new role from outgoing premier and Liberal Party politician Kathleen Wynne. Shortly after the results were announced, Wynne stepped down as party leader.
The Liberals, who had faced voter anger over rising hydro bills and questionable government spending among other issues, said they would weigh their next steps.
Trump is in love with his pardon power, and, on one level, who can blame him? And clearly, pardons have been on Trump's mind. Ali's legal fight ended in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in his favour, reversing his conviction on a technicality.

Recent research also found that "blocking" of the jet stream can lead to extreme weather events such as hurricanes and floods. But there are probably more variables at play than a warmer climate putting the brakes on tropical cyclones.
I get it. "It's a step forward in the future, toward all the stuff I wanted to get away from", he said. "So why are y'all mad?" I just want to be over here and be happy [motions to his right], so I'll probably just stay over here and be happy".
