The election was called on September 2 by Premier Ernie Eves after public opinion polls indicated an increase in support for the governing Ontario Progressive Conservative Party because of the government's handling of the 2003 North American flout.
The election was won, however, by the Ontario Liberal Party, led by Dalton McGuinty.

The Ontario general election of 2007 is scheduled to be held on October 4, 2007 to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, Canada.
As a result of legislation passed by the Legislature in 2004, election dates are now fixed by formula so that an election is held approximately four years after the previous election, unless the government is defeated by a vote of "no confidence" in the Legislature.
As of 2004 Ontario has new legislation, meaning that election dates are fixed for the provincial government, instead of chosen by the Premier, like all previous elections.

Of course this election was, to a certain extent, a barometer of support and no one is denying it was a bad result for the SSP but its way to early to write them off.
In 2007, they will be fighting the Holyrood election, not as a critical opposition party, but as a governing party defending a dismal track record.

 Dan Lynch Online » Fixed Election Dates
Specifically, he has introduced legislation to fix the date of general elections in Ontario as the first Thursday in October in the fourth calendar year after the preceeding general election, except in cases where confidence is lost.
On the one hand, a fixed election date is seen as an important improvement in the democratic process.
It takes away from the incumbant party the advantage of determining exactly when the election will be held, and it allows much more long-term planning by all parties and other politically interested persons and organizations.

TORONTO - Ontario's deficit for 2004 is likely to be about three times what the government predicted in the budget, the finance minister said on Friday, blaming a change in accounting for the difference.
In the 2003 election that brought him to power, McGuinty promised to balance the budget every year.
Friday's announcement means the Liberals' first full fiscal year in office could end with a deficit that is even higher than the one generated by the Tories during their final year in office.

A governing body in the Anglican Church of Canada pushed-off a decision on same-sex union blessings until 2007 and suggested the issue was "a matter of doctrine" that should be considered by the entire church body.
After a three-day meeting in Mississauga, Ontario, the Council of the General Synod concluded that it is not up to individual diocesan synods and bishops to decide whether gay unions should be blessed in parishes since the matter has become of great theological significance in the church.
Any decisions by the General Synod must be approved by all three levels of the governing body - clergy, bishops and lay people - at two separate meetings, three years apart.

Prior to his election he served in the backrooms of the party, and subsequently went on to hold a variety of minor cabinet posts.
In the election itself, the party will be using a system similar to that employed by the federal Conservatives, but on a riding-by-riding basis.
