A Wynne for Toronto?

Congratulations to Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberal Party on securing a majority government in last week’s provincial election. It was a night of firsts, as Ms. Wynne is not only the first woman ever elected Premier of Ontario, but also the first openly gay Premier in the entire Commonwealth and English-speaking world. Furthermore, a record 38 women MPPs were elected (up from 30 in 2011).

It’s also worth noting that Kathleen Wynne is Toronto-based (MPP for Don Valley West). Could this help Toronto’s position in the province? That remains to be seen, and the provincial elections have been a good time to reflect on this great city’s role in the province, as well as re-focus priorities for the municipal elections on October 27.

The Robb Not Ford campaign is back on the trail, and it’s a busy week ahead: including a Mayoral Candidates’ Forum on Wednesday, live-streamed interview on Thursday, and a couple music events Friday and Saturday.

Visit the Events page for all the details.

Time to do better, Toronto!
