Ontario Premier Says She Can’t Win Election

The current premier of Ontario says there will be a new premier after the election on June 7 and it most certainly won’t be her.
That was a very surprising announcement.
Premier Kathleen Wynne leads the Ontario Liberal Party. She is one of three main candidates vying for the spot of premier in the upcoming election. The other two main candidates are Doug Ford Jr., who leads the Progressive Conservative (PC) party of Ontario and Andrea Horwath, who leads the Ontario New Democratic Party (NDP).

Big “Wynne Win” Surprises Pollsters

It came as a big surprise: Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals were elected on Thursday night with a majority government.

The people who predict how elections will turn out didn’t see that coming.

Until the last days before the election, the odds were that either the Liberals would win a minority government or the PC party, led by Tim Hudak, would win.
