TORONTO - Ontario's Liberals secured a majority government in Thursday's provincial election. Here are some key quotes from prominent players:

"You have put your trust in us and we will not let you down." — Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne.


"We did not receive the results that we wanted...(But) nobody should take this result as an endorsement of the status quo." — Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak.


"I know that perhaps people weren't hoping for this particular result tonight, but New Democrats are fighters and we are going to keep fighting." — NDP Leader Andrea Horwat.


"I look forward to working with Premier Wynne on issues of importance to Ontarians and all Canadians, including promoting jobs, growth and long-term prosperity." — Prime Minister Stephen Harper.


"Ontario needs a partner in Ottawa, not an antagonist. We Liberals are determined to work with the provincial government to build that positive alternative for Ontarians and all other Canadians." — Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.


"Congratulations Andrea Horwath and to the ONDP on a hard fought campaign...Congratulations to Kathleen Wynne on her win tonight in Ontario." Federal NDP Leader Tom Mulcair.
