Ontario Liberals made history Saturday with Kathleen Wynne’s victory, which makes her Ontario’s first woman premier.

I’m hoping we haven’t forgot about the scandal plagued party which forced the proroguing of parliament and it will be good to see how they deal with the necessary crucifixion of the x-premier and his corrupt cronies.
Kathleen Wynne is the leader of the party she is not the premier the people did not elect her. We need an election now,
She has no say as she is not the premier the people of Ontario did not elect her.
I agree, lets have a election as soon as possible.
Where is she getting the idea the we don’t want an election? I pressume from ex-premier dad!
Or she is afraid she will be the first premier to loose and election after being appointed by the party.
We all know that the liberals will be wipped out on the next election, thats why Dalton got out the sinking ship.
I predict a Conservative victory in the next election. Northern Ontarians & (most) immigrants will NOT vote for a gay premier. Time for the Fiberals to be booted from office anyway as Ontario is on the brink of destruction. I’m not even sure the damage can be un-done though.
I hope she will not steal any more money from our children by increasing the deficit and overspending to please certain groups today and leaving our children with a huge debt tomorrow. But I doubt… Sandra was a much better choice. Too bad for Liberal party and Ontario.
@b — are you naive enough to believe there was any way her sexual orientation would not be brought up??????
It’s my sincere hope and belief that the end of the Liberal dynasty is near. Can’t come a minute too soon!
sexual orientation should remain private. it should not need to be publicized in business, sports or politics etc unless someone needs an edge of sorts. so if Wynn loses or screws up will she use the homo phobe card? do your job..period. if you fail, you can rest assured you could not cut it as a premier.
How disgusting. As if I needed more reasons NOT to vote liberal. Good job liberals, when the ship is sinking you throw them a big rock to solidify sole posession of rock bottom. Wake up Ontario! this is your chance to dump the liberals! Time to step up your A-game Tim!
What an INSULT to the people of Ontario “Are we ready for a gay Premier?” So she thought we were are all prejudice hicks until she won. That’s right…because she is from Toronto and anyone outside Toronto in her mind must be a dumb hick. It’s an insult that she thought her sexuality was an issue. And an Insult to Torontonians that she represents them like that.
Since the Liberals prorogued / closed government have the MPPs been getting a paycheque?
She says she is going to govern ALL Ontario yet this is the same person who in government REFUSED to let teachers bargain in their LOCAL school boards. You could bargain as long as your contract was the one the government had already created, the contract that was only good for the TORONTO CATHOLIC District School Board. Some board said they would do more oncalls while others said they would take less sick days, all these individual plans all over the Province but NO she wanted ONE contract for all teachers, ONE that just happened to work for TORONTO.
They will not have my vote
Congratulations — hopefully we will get a new and better direction.
Not good for the Liberals, they will be turfed from office the next election. Good for comedy press, they have a new target.
