Justin Trudeau's F-bombs — as in Ford — exploded Andrew Scheer's path to power as Ontario voters bought the Liberal line that the Conservative leader was the second coming of an unpopular Tory premier.

Trudeau's Liberals were leading or had held 78 of the province's 121 seats as of 11:30 p.m. Monday as Ontarians rejected Scheer over fears he would impose similar cuts to Premier Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives.

The Tories had won or were leading in just 37 — a pick up of only four seats from the 2015 election — while the NDP had six ridings at that time.
