TORONTO, on | Is this the new conservative chief Doug Ford, who scares the electorate or is it that the budget is very extravagant, filed this week by the liberals was a hit with the electorate? Still, a poll published Saturday in the National Post indicates an upturn in the sudden for the troops of the first minister Kathleen Wynne.
The conservatives still dominate, with 36 % of voting intentions, but the gap with the outgoing government, who heads the Ontario without interruption for 15 years, is closing. The liberals are credited with 29 % support in this survey probe with 728 voters by the firm Forum Research.
The liberals have not won so far, at least at this stage, their bet to continue their long reign at the head of the richest province of Canada.
According to the poll, the conservatives, Doug Ford, brother of the controversial ex-mayor of Toronto Rob Ford, remporteraient the election if it were held today, but the rise of the liberals deprived them of a majority. Doug Ford would run a minority government with 57 seats, leaving 36 liberals and 31 from the new democrats.
The New democratic Party of ontario takes him also to the decline of the conservatives, but he must be content with the third step.
“The increase in support for the liberals is as brutal as the sudden”, said the president of Research Research, Lorne Bozinoff, by issuing a press release.
“We have shown that a sea of blue in Ontario for more than a year, the liberals are dangling between the second and the third place”, said Mr. Bozinoff. If the liberals can turn this spark in dynamics, this could generate a race to be more competitive in June. This budget seems to be a good start for the provincial liberals.”
The coming weeks promise to be eventful in Ontario, at the dawn of the general election held on 7 June. This survey indicates that nothing is gained for Doug Ford.
