The race is on for the leadership of the Ontario Liberal party.
As expected, former Municipal Affairs Minister Kathleen Wynne has announced that she is joining former Sports Minister Glenn Murray in the contest to replace Dalton McGuinty.
Wynne is also a former education minister. She says she would work to repair relationships with public-sector workers if elected Liberal leader.
The MPP for Don Valley West says the party must return to the middle of the political spectrum and mend relations with thousands of angry teachers as the province battles a $14.4-billion deficit.
The Conservatives clearly consider Wynne’s chances of winning the race are good. An attack ad appeared on YouTube within minutes of her announcing her candidacy.
Liberals elect their new leader, and the next Premier of Ontario, on the weekend of January 25th.
