TORONTO – Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is calling for vicious, partisan politics at Queen’s Park to become a thing of the past, warning that the public will tune out otherwise.
At a Liberal fundraising heritage dinner, the Premier told the crowd that the party can handle winning elections and that politicians do not have to be vicious or mean or willfully partisan.
Around 2,000 people were at the dinner event.
Wynne also said she’ll be listening to opposition leaders even though her assessment of certain political situations may differ.

Meanwhile, a Forum Research poll published by the Toronto Star Thursday, reveals the Liberal Party is still in control of Toronto with 42 per cent support, followed by the NDP at 30 per cent, leaving the Tories five points back in third place.
The Premier’s first minority budget is expected to be unveiled sometime this spring, which could trigger an election if it’s rejected by the two opposition parties.
