The Progressive Conservative party won a majority government in Ontario on Thursday night, ending more than 15 years of the Liberal party running the province.

"It's very humbling to have received this kind of mandate from the people", he said at a Friday morning press conference at the Congress Centre after his party snatched a resounding majority with 76 seats to the NDP's 40 and the Liberals' seven.

"I know that tonight is not the result we were looking for and no one feels that more sharply than I do, but this is not a moment where any of us should linger". Ford has vowed to scrap a cap-and-trade program aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and to cut corporate and personal taxes.

Despite failing to win government, Horwath's position is likely safe, experts said.

"Some of the deep clamour for change emerged simply from the fact that the Liberals had governed for 15 years - a lengthy stretch for any political party", said Cristine de Clercy, a political science professor at Western University in southern Ontario.

Wynne, who reached retirement age of 65 last month, was upbeat despite her party's defeat.

For Horwath it would certainly have been her last election as leader had she landed in third place yet again.

Meanwhile, Ford would not say if he will lower the legislature's threshold for official party status to accommodate the Liberals, who were decimated at the polls.

But Wynne leaves the party leadership with an uncertain legacy.

Liberal leader and former Premier Kathleen Wynne won her riding by just 181 votes, and resigned as party leader.

"We owe so much to Rob's legacy - a legacy of service to the people, a legacy started by my father Doug Ford Sr. and a legacy that will continue".

Ford - a businessman who rails against the elite and regularly peppers his speeches and interviews with boasts and falsehoods - is the brother of Rob Ford, the former Toronto mayor who made headlines around the world after he admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in office.
