From a former Ontario premier to a soon-to-be-former Ontario premier


A statement from interim Liberal leader Bob Rae on the resignation of Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.

“For the last twenty two years, Mr. McGuinty has shown a deep and abiding commitment to public service and public life. In his nine years as Premier, Mr. McGuinty has made Ontario a global leader in education by introducing full-day kindergarten and by making post-secondary education more accessible and affordable than ever before. 

Premier McGuinty took a tough stand against bullies in our schoolyards and made schools safer for our children.

Since 2003, Ontarians have improved access to family doctors, home and long-term care – all thanks to Premier McGuinty’s leadership.

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I want to thank Mr. McGuinty for his exceptional service to the province of Ontario.”
