Since I started writing a blog back in 2005 I have been railing against the Liberals who have been in power for almost 15 years now. But that all changed last night.
It was my fellow Blogging Tory buddy Alberta Aardvark who reminded me how long this battle has taken:
Back in the glory days of Blogging Tories he would support and console me during the McGuinty era while he sat in strong, conservative Alberta. So now the colours have changed for both of us but I firmly believe Alberta will be blue once again after the next election.
The once mighty Ontario Liberal Party has been reduced to a mere rump of 7 seats which means they lose official party status. Kathleen Wynne will have to wear that humiliation.
The Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario has ended up with 76 seats which is a very decent majority. Actually it’s quite remarkable when you consider what chaos the party was in just a few short months ago during the Patrick Brown debacle. Doug Ford wasn’t my first choice as party leader but it has all worked out for the best in the end. My ultimate fear was a NDP-Liberal coalition so this majority PC outcome is such a relief! The NDP as official opposition is manageable, and could even garner more conservative support as Ontarians see what a radical crew they truly are.
And now we have strong conservative presence in Ontario to stand up to Justin Trudeau’s ruinous policies. Let’s work together to spread this Blue Wave right across Canada!
