Well a very unexpected turn of events in Ontario Politics. Premier Dalton McGuinty announced that he is proroguing the Ontario legislature and resigned as Premier and Liberal Party Leader. His full statement is now available.
While I’m not happy about a prorogue of the legislature, I can see why the premier would decide to do this. 16years is a long time to be leader (he is the 2nd longest serving Liberal premier in the province). As well there are very few times a government in power can continue to do well past several terms. There are many things the Librerals have done in the last 9 years that I’m happy about, however lately they have done some things that don’t make sense at least to me.
