So there you have it. With minimal outrage, Ontario went from a very left of center Liberal Government to a Conservative Government.
PCs 40.63% up 9.38%
NDP 33.69% up 9.94%
Green 4.62% down 0.22% (but there leader was elected).
Other 1.75% up 0.24%
Liberials 19.3% down 19.35% (with only 7 seats lost official party status)
Of note his first actions were; to increasing staffing of nurses and stop the annual 2% reduction in Doctor's pay that has been in effect for the last 6 years.
Lets hope this rabbit hole is better for Ontario residence then the last one.
