So much for polls saying NDP and PC being neck-to-neck.

In popular vote yes but all polls were predicting a conservative win based on distribution.

OH man.  Kathleen win I sent leading in her riding.  Her seat may mean party status or not.  What does she do if she wins? She can’t step down as an MP.  Interesting.

I think i saw Wynne just lost her riding to the PC party.

As usual, the unionists in my town have once again elected a bunch of candidates not from the governing party. And once again we live another 4 years of political wasteland and gratuitous scorn from Queens Park.

However, I'm happy as a pig in shit that Ford is in it for a very large majority. I hope Trudeau and his incompetent caucus  is paying attention.

I'm wondering how PM Trudeau is looking at this win?

One of two ways. And I am guessing.

Worried about that kind of rejection of left wing policies.

Happy to have a foil.  Ford will be the new boogeyman.

Somebody please tell me Laura Kaminker of the NDP fame has thundered in.  That would make my day.

She’s still leading. By a thousand votes so far give or take.

Don't know if that's thundering in, but we won't have to listen to Ms Kaminker's ignorant BS in the legislature at any rate.

Excellent, now she can go back to her rock or wherever she crawled out from under.

If she wins her seat we won’t see the last of her...

At the moment she's leading with 43 votes and one poll left to report. I smell a recount coming.

And Wynne resigns as liberal leader.

I wasn't gloating at Wynne, l was gloating at the NDP candidate from Mississauga Centre.

From the article:

Ford just has to continue to appeal to a base, whereas Horwath needs to get people out to vote and decide that she and her party are their first choice.

Oh man, did I ever call that.  I should be a political pundit....naahhh.

Is there a statutory requirement for a recount if the margin is below a certain level?

There's a handful of down to the wire ridings.

EDIT: Saw this on Twitter.  25 votes or less and there shall be a recount; bigger margin and a recount may be requested by anyone.
