It's a Wynne win situation Saturday, January 26, 2013 by: Kate Adams
Kathleen Wynne triumphed over front-runner Sandra Pupatello Saturday in Toronto to win the Ontario Leadership race making her Ontario’s first woman premier.
Wynne, who represents the riding of Don Valley West, is Canada’s first openly gay premier.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement after Kathleen Wynne was confirmed as the Premier-Designate of Ontario:
“On behalf of our Government, I congratulate Premier-Designate Wynne on her election as Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party.
“I look forward to working with Ms. Wynne on addressing issues that matter to Ontarians, and in particular the creation of jobs and economic growth.
“I would also like to thank the outgoing Premier for his service to Ontario, especially his work with our Government on implementing Canada’s Economic Action Plan.”

She says she will build the party on
"Dalton's Legacy". Good Luck with that lady. Not once during that whole Campaign
did one of them mention Energy, Fraud,
Ehealth,Lhines or any of the other problems facing this Province.
To Hudak,have a confidence vote as soon
as the house sits and lets get rid of this
bunch and try to put our Province back
together if it is possible.
If the N.D.P. cosey up to this bunch.
"MAY GOD HELP US ALL"

Really, you mean the fact he cleared the 6 billion dollar deficit left by Harris/Hudack within a few years means nothing? The fact that it was big business that engineered the world wide recession we have been struggling with means nothing. The fact that big business gives Hudak his insane fear based white papers means nothing? The fact that the "consultants" in e-health and those running ornge were all private business guys means nothing? Hudak has already shown his slash and burn,sell our profitable assets card and Ontarians will not fall for a new name for the common sense bs we suffered through in the previous pc (tea) party. This pc party is not even remotely related to the proud pc's of the 70's and 80's. Everywhere their policies have been tried have shown they fail. Everything they do now is orchestrated by the rich for the rich. And guess what? We are not part of them. My guess is that Wynne and Horvath will team up crushing Timmy Walmart.

His last 2 years in office put the south against the north and his debt will probubly be huge when examined.
He has left bad feelings behind and will be remembered for more for wrong decisions than the Bad.
Hopefully Miss. Wynne will shake lose some of his advisors and start mending fences Asap.
