WATCH: Doug Ford’s Full Victory Speech

“Tonight we took the first step in defeating Kathleen Wynne.”

After a chaotic day and night that capped a chaotic period for the Ontario PC Party, the party now has some certainty.

Doug Ford won the Ontario PC leadership race, leading Ford Nation against the establishment and achieving victory.

After sending everybody home without results, the Ontario PC Party held a press conference to announce Ford’s win, giving Ford his first chance to address the people of Ontario in his new role.

Ford said “tonight we took the first step in defeating Kathleen Wynne,” adding “the people of Ontario want the Ontario Liberals gone, and they deserve nothing less.”

Ford’s win sends a message that endorsements from politicians and donations from well-connected elites aren’t always enough to win. The grassroots still matter, and a connection with the grassroots is what put Ford over the top.

  1. The chaos you have gone through to get here was a test. You have held
    strong and calm. Wishing you the best in your new role.

    All Fords are exactly alike, but no two men are just alike. Every new life is a new thing under the sun; there has never been anything just like it before, never will be again. A young man ought to get that idea about himself; he should look for the single spark of individuality that makes him different from other folks, and develop that for all he is worth. Society and schools may try to iron it out of him; their tendency is to put it all in the same mold, but I say don’t let that spark be lost; it is your only real claim to importance. Henry Ford

  2. Doug Ford although no perfect man, like all of us, is with the real people, not sitting in an ivory tower being an elite, looking down at us. He is on the ground working with us and for us, like reality, like a real person with us all, and will be attacked by the media and Liberals trying to undermine the residents of this province and Canada. We desperately need a leader who will get us back on our feet and be honest to us, I sincerely hope he is this strong real man, with us, not feeding off of us.

  3. Right on. However. Elliot is contesting the outcome now. She claims Doug Ford won by only 154 votes. It took them exactly eleven whole hours to count those 64,000 ballots, which they did first by computer, and then, after scanning each one, counting them manually with many lawyers etc. watching. What more could the woman possibly want? She refused to allow the voting to continue one more week––against the wishes of the other three candidates running for the leadership role of the Ontario Conservative Party––until management got their act together and got the packages out to the some 120,000 members who never received them, so that they could vote. Now, she alone is contesting the outcome! The poles had her ahead of Doug Ford by six points last Thursday, and she did not want to lose that momentum. The poles were obviously wrong. SHE LOST FAIR-AND-SQUARE! Ms. Elliot has to now prove that she is someone who really does care about the Party and not just herself. Maybe had there been those extra votes she would have won, but I don’t think so. I agree that the Peter Kents of the Ontario Conservative Party need to step down and stop spewing uglies about the Ford family. Peter is tired and old; and Christine is just a poor loser. Had the additional 120,000 people been allowed to vote, there is no doubt in my mind that Doug would have won by a landslide. She was the one contestant that refused to allow the voting to be extended by one week, undoubtedly because she feared such an outcome.
