TORONTO (News Service) – On Thursday, The Progressive Conservative Party, supported by populist “Doug Ford”, is on the way to achieve victory in Ontario, Canada’s most populous province,

The networks forecasted that Ford’s party can win the majority of seats in the provincial legislature, giving Ford ultimate powers to pass legislation.  He said, “I’m very grateful to the people of Ontario,”

Ford, aged 53, brother of the late mayor of Toronto Rob Ford, who presented international news in 2013 when he was hospitalized for smoking cocaine.

Jonathan Rose, professor at Queen’s University said, “I do think there’s a bit of spillover from populism in the United States that could have washed over the Ontario election”, he also added “It’s hard to believe that someone who has never held office other than as a municipal councillor … is elected to lead the largest economy in a G7 country”.

About one-third of Canada’s population of around 36 million, Ontario, country’s economic engine and home to its biggest city, Toronto, one of the largest sub-sovereign debts in the world, at nearly C$350 billion (202.68 billion pounds) in March.

The PC party never released a fully costed platform and promised to reduce the taxes and also find some approx. C$6 billion in efficiencies without eliminating jobs, leaving some bond investors uncertain.

Canadian media projected a Ford victory, investors were seeking details of his economic policies. Both the left-leaning New Democratic Party and the centrist Liberal party campaigned a programme on expanding social services, especially for the childcare and health coverage.

Ford, spent much of his life running the family’s label business, served on Toronto’s city council when his brother was mayor,

His campaign was hit with a series of controversies, including allegations from his brother’s widow that he mismanaged the family business and separate accusations that he interfered with a party nomination fight.
