Defying almost all predictions, Wynne earned a convincing win both in the popular vote and the number of seats, paving the way for her part to govern on their own for the first time in three years - and she did by moving to the left as her opponents moved in the opposite direction.
You'll hear a lot of pundits offering their take on why the election ended as it did, with a Liberal majority. Did Wynne's vision win? Did Hudak's vision lose? Was it third-party ads that swayed the day? How much does the Liberal's existing record play into the picture? Or Hudak's record as a Mike Harris stalwart? did Horwath make any impact at all?
We'll hear every variant under the sun, delivered with confidence of course. That's what pundits and advocates do - push their message relentlessly and interpret results in a way that benefits them.
Even the pollsters remain confident in their methodology.
We heard a slightly different Kathleen Wynne over the campaign than we're used to - a bit more focused on herself than what she can do - but throughout what was a tough campaign, Kathleen Wynne remained as she has always been; herself.
Kathleen Wynne isn't a spinner (although she is a runner). She is authentic, honest and direct. Equally, Wynne isn't the sort of person who figures she has all the answers; in fact, the skill that she has the most confidence in, the one which motivated her to run for Leader is her facilitation ability.
It was suggested over the campaign that Wynne's sounded less like a leader and more like a bureaucrat by talking details. In truth, she sounded less like a campaigner and more like someone ready to have a meaningful conversation with partners, which is what she is.
I like to think that, for the majority of Ontarians who aren't rabid partisans, this sincerity shone through. Tired of spin, message, deflection and obfuscation, we're looking for someone who understands leadership as being a conduit, not a capstone.
It may just be this is how Wynne won. Regardless, it's how Ontario is going to win, which is what our leaders should be focused on anyway.
