Ontarians are only in the first week of the month-long provincial election, but after a rocky first day on the campaign trail, did Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak already lose the election? Maybe.
In 2011, Hudak was considered to the premier-in-waiting, especially after a disastrous two terms of Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty and his Liberal Party. Engulfed in scandals, broken promises, soaring debt and budget deficits, many thought there would absolutely be no chance of Hudak losing the election to McGuinty.
