This year's Ontario provincial election rhetoric touched on everything from health care to transit, nuclear power to homophobia. And barbeque, of course. Voters were hard-pressed to remember a tighter race. Ultimately, the electorate opted for more of Dalton McGuinty's Liberals, but just barely: with all the votes counted, the Liberals had won 53 ridings, one short of the 54 needed for a majority.
After conceding defeat, Tory Leader Tim Hudak said the result showed that voters were ambivalent. "My friends, it is very clear the people of Ontario have put Dalton McGuinty on a very short leash," he said.
