Ontario Liberals win majority, Tory leader will step down

The Ontario Liberals won a majority and the Progressive Conservatives lost a leader in yesterday's election.

Kathleen Wynne and her Liberals picked up an extra 11 seats for a total of 59 in sweeping past Tim Hudak and his PC party, which dropped 10 seats to finish with 27. Hudak said he would step down once a new party leader is chosen.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath — who triggered the election by refusing to support a Liberal budget — saw her party end up where it began, with 21 seats in the legislature.

Wynne says her first order of business once the legislature returns is reintroducing the same budget that launched the campaign. (The Canadian Press)
