The World

Ontario’s Progressive-Conservative Party was ousted from power by a no-confidence vote in the Legislature, ending more than four decades of Tory control of Canada’s most populous province. The opposition Liberals and New Democrats joined forces on a 72-52 vote to topple the government of Premier Frank Miller. In return for the New Democrats’ support, the Liberals have pledged a comprehensive package of economic, legislative and economic reforms. Liberal leader David Peterson is expected to take over as premier next month.
