John Tory, who was formerly the Ontario PC Party leader, won the mayoral race, edging out the elder Ford by less than 65,000 votes.
The difference between this leadership campaign and the upcoming election campaign is that Ford can not count on the same kind of policy emptiness and equivocation he encountered among his Tory rivals when he faces off against Wynne.
Ford was elected party leader on Saturday night following a chaotic and confusing leadership vote in Markham.
Wynne, meanwhile, is cautioning that Ontario voters face a "stark" choice between her party and the PCs this spring, evidently ignoring Andrea Horwath's New Democrats. Wynne replaced Dalton McGuinty as premier after winning the 2013 Ontario Liberal leadership race.
But the biggest challenge for Ford may come not from the Liberals but from Tories themselves, for they are in greater disarray and disunity than at any time in recent memory. The main event ended with images of crews taking down balloons that were meant to shower the new party leader hours earlier.
"I felt that our province needs a change and I'll bring that change - I'll respect the taxpayers, I'll put money back in their pocket instead of the government's pocket", Ford said.
"Quite frankly, it actually doesn't matter which of the candidates was chosen last night because if we look at the platform that they were ostensibly running on, there were billions of dollars of cuts that were coming forward", Wynne said when asked about the leadership vote at the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation's annual general meeting.
Like his brother, Ford touted his connections to ordinary voters dubbed "Ford Nation" who want small government and a tough style of speaking.
Hillier said he expects Ford to moderate the party's message to appeal to more supporters.
"When conservatives are divided, tax-raisers and leftist parties always win", Kenney said, poking fun at Justin Trudeau by saying he would refer to Ontario as the "gender-neutral older sibling" of Confederation rather than its older brother. "This concept that I see of polarization I don't think will be almost as predominant in the coming months".
The Organizing Committee extended the registration deadline three times and even gave members an extra half-day to cast their ballots, but such actions were not enough to fend off allegations of vote suppression and corruption within the party ranks.
"That's a lot of votes", Hillier said.
Rickford attributed Ford's success in the campaign to his "populist" approach to governance which resonated with PC party members as opposed to politicians who do what they think is best for people. "Clearly Doug Ford resonates not just in Toronto but throughout rural and smalltown Ontario".
Stafford, a Charleston seventh-grader, said that since the strike began, he's attended sleepovers and played Xbox games. INSKEEP: The 19 members, the majority of the Senate that turned aside that deal. "You can't make this stuff up".
