This is an open thread to discuss yesterday's election.
The Liberals easily won a majority, the first back-to-back Liberal majority in 70 years.
Here in Hamilton, Liberals Ted McMeekin and newcomer Sophia Aggelonitis took Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale and Hamilton Mountain, respectively.
New Democrat Andrea Horwath won Hamilton Centre as expected, and New Democrat Paul Miller beat Liberal Nerene Virgin in Hamilton East-Stoney Creek.
The Green Party failed to win any seats in the province, but had stronger support than in 2003, winning about 8% of the popular vote.
The big losers in this election, though, are the Conservatives, whose hopes for a possible minority government were demolished by John Tory's ill-advised proposal to extend funding to private religious schools.
