CFN Predicts a 75 Seat PC Majority Wynne for Doug Ford on June 7th -by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – In what has been a very odd election campaign it appears that Doug Ford has kept his cool and will become Ontario’s next Premier on June 7th.

Between the political assassination of former PC leader Patrick Brown to the early concession of Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, it’s been an election of change and sadly a deterioration of Democracy in the province.

We’ve seen less coverage of this election campaign; partly due to the change in ad buying by all of the parties who are sending cash out of the province and country by feeding social media.  This has led to less resources spent by media locally and regionally.

Essentially that has led to more partisan rhetoric in play than actual factual reporting or as  we journalists tend to call it, NEWS.

And that’s simply led to more nastiness which also tends to lead to a lower voter turnout.

Make no mistake about it; this has been a nasty election with no party being innocent of not throwing low blows.

It should be interesting to see how things roll out during the first week of a Ford PC government, but what we do know is that if election legislation  isn’t created our Democratic process with further erode.

Fearless CFN Seat Prediction

PC’s  75

NDP 46

LIB  2

Green 1

As well local MPP Jim McDonell will be re-elected in SD&SG, but will not make the grade in cabinet.

    Jamie,
    Trust your predictions come through re a PC majority Government , however I believe
    our MPP from Glengarry Jim McDonell should be and will be offered a Cabinet Position .

    BM1 you think O’Shaughnessy rocks too. Jim is a repugnant man who Godwined himself at Queen’s Park and then only apologized after it exploded. He also is anti democratic and anti freedom of the Press. This is not someone anyone should want representing him. That we seem to not have anyone better in this riding is frankly, frightening.

    Remind me not to have you pick my lottery numbers 😉

    If you are correct, we will see a four-year gong show.

    lol, Furtz, as opposed to the last four years? Or the next four if Andrea and her friends were in control?

    Your numbers are almost the same as CBC poll analyst Éric Grenier. He predicts PC 73, NDP 50 and LIB 1.

    Hugger Eric does a better job. My prediction is based on where I feel the momentum is going. The PC’s have rebounded in the last rounds of polls. Essentially Horwath has Hudaked herself.

    Agreed Jamie. As they say on one of my favourite TV vet shows “you do what you do what you do” The NDP may be close in the popular vote, but that’s not how Ontario elects people / parties.

    Hugger my super secret special polling showed the NDP had a 27% of winning this riding (SD&SG) The party and their local candidate ignored the one media outlet that could’ve helped them.

    The candidate agreed to participate in all candidate events that were not democratic and didn’t invite us or treat all media fairly.

    Some of these silly muppets might not like me or crudely disrespect myself, but anyone that disrespects this newspaper’s audience and hopes to achieve something involving the public really is wasting their time.

    Dug said he’d cut funding to the CBC if elected!
    Dumber than a sack of hammers…
