Final Ballot:

Hudak: 5606
Klees: 4643

I am quite pleased it came down to two former Harris Ministers, and a couple of honest to goodness Conservatives.

I would have been happy with either or.

Congrats to Tim!

I am happy to see Hudak win the leadership. Klees was right, it was very close!

By looking at the maps you showed us, it looks like Klees won the majority of Toronto ridings.

Toronto Star and value in the same sentence?? That's an oxymoron if I ever saw one!

i'm surprised it came down to hudak and klees in the end , i though it be hudak and elliott but either way i think many expected hudak to win in the end . i think now that the party has a new leader it time to put john tory and ernie eves behind us and move on and find ways to make the ontario pc party a force again in ontario , one that can win back the legislature at some point in the near future . as ontario just can't have any more of dalton mcguinty or this province is going to be doomed .

I am glad Hudak won. This will really mobilize the base.

My only concern is though with his policy of closing down the Human Rights Tribunal. I agree with him 100% but it will be an extremely tough policy to sell to ordinary Ontarians. Liberals will try their best to make it the central theme of his campaign just like they did with the religious funding for John Tory.

Tory rolled over like a wet noodle on the issue,
Hudak will not.

The 2010 Mayoral race in Toronto should be interesting. John Tory vs. David Miller. It'll be like watching a boxing match between two armless men.

I'm in favour of privatizing the education system and funding the student. Tory's faith based funding is an expansion of government, not a reduction of it.

I totally agree. A more responsible policy would have been proposing to reduce funding for faith schools.

Would Hudak legislate the Toronto city strikers back to work? Would he move to privatize some of the "city services" such as child care, city-run pools and garbage collection?
