The Ontario Election and After
AbstractThe Ontario election of June 8, 1995 was disaster for the NDP (New Democratic Party) [Canada's social democratic party, founded in 1932 as an alliance of agrarian cooperative groups and labor. Adopting its current name in 1961, it is now primarily based on organized labor and urban left-liberals - the Editors.] and the Liberals, and has quickly shown itself to be a disaster for the people of Ontario. Even the Reform party (the right-wing party whose base is in Alberta and whose leader, a shrill-voiced demagogue, is Preston Manning) is worried that the Tory gains were partly at its expense. Only the Tories, federal as well as provincial, seem to be clear winners.
