June 13, 2014

MONCTON, N.B. – The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the election of Kathleen Wynne as Premier of Ontario:

“I congratulate Premier-designate Kathleen Wynne on a hard-fought election campaign and her majority win. This election is an historic moment for the province: Kathleen Wynne has now become the first woman ever elected to the office of Premier of Ontario. I look forward to working with her to build an economy that works for the middle class, and for those who work hard every day to join it.

“Ontario needs a partner in Ottawa, not an antagonist. We Liberals are determined to work with the provincial government to build that positive alternative for Ontarians and all other Canadians.”
