Wynne Vows To Create North Ontario Cabinet Committee

Kathleen Wynne has announced her intentions of giving opportunity to Northern Ontario for evaluating legislation and policy which specifically impacts their region. Wynne suggested that Northern Ontario shall contribute in shape of making recommendations of improving these laws. She implied that his will be the essential function of a Northern Ontario cabinet committee that Liberal leadership is going to create if she wins in Toronto and becomes the successor to outgoing Premier Dalton McGuinty.

Wynne was preparing for the second of five leadership debates, when she announced that “there are policies and practices across government that have an impact on different regions of the province in different ways. I think having a cabinet committee that would apply that Northern lens to decisions that we were proposing, policies that we were proposing, I think would be very healthy.” She further described that the committee will organize the representatives of several ministries and MPPs of different parts of the province. She added that “I think it would be very helpful. Having the cabinet meeting in the North is a signal that my government would be very aware and would stay connected to communities in the North.”

The 59-year-old Wynne helped building the full-day kindergarten into Ontario schools during her time as the education minister. She has prioritized job creation and increased investment in roads and bridges for the North to be her primary goals. She claimed that “I want to make sure we create the partnerships and the training opportunities that allow young people to qualify for the jobs and let young people stay in the North if they choose to do that.”
