McGuinty wins Liberal minority
Cormac McSweeney Oct 07, 2011 06:06:42 AM

OTTAWA, Ont. - Supporters laughed and cheered as they packed the hall at the Chateau Laurier Hotel in Ottawa, where excitement was high following the news Dalton McGuinty and the Liberals had won a minority government.

Local Liberal candidates and their election teams began to arrive at the hotel soon after the victory, filling the already packed hall to capacity.

No Liberal premier has been able to win three straight terms in more than a century, a feat which Liberal MP and Dalton's brother, David McGuinty, said makes him very proud.

Ontario election turnout lowest in 36 years


OTTAWA Ontario voters stayed home in record numbers on election night as less than half of those eligible cast a ballot to decide who should lead the province.


Only 49.2 per cent of the province's 8.7 million eligible voters went to the polls Thursday, according to preliminary figures released by Elections Ontario.

It's the lowest turnout in the province's history and a watershed moment for voter apathy in Ontario.


For the first time, a government will take office based on the views of less than half of the electorate.

Tyler Sommers, co-ordinator for the government watchdog group, Democracy Watch, said "the poor turnout should set off alarm bells in Ontario.


It definitely matters because it's getting to the point that the legitimacy of the government comes into question," he said. "How can they say they have a mandate? They don't have a mandate if only 18 per cent of voters voted for them."

^^or voted weeks in advance with advance voting. Ontarians dont give a shit.

I didn't vote (i'm not a resident of ontario), but i think dalton is the pick of the (bottom of the barrel) litter.

Our government is a joke... doesn't matter who wins... they won't do what's best for the residents anyway.

Precisely why voter turnout was so low. Belief in our political system is at an all-time low. Personally, I gave up 20 years ago and stopped voting.
