INGERSOLL, Ont. – Kathleen Wynne says she would serve as agriculture minister for one year if she wins the Liberal leadership in January and becomes Ontario’s next premier.
Wynne made the comment in Ingersoll, during the first of five all-candidates debates for the seven men and women running to replace Dalton McGuinty.
The candidates faced vague questions selected and posed by Liberal insiders and focusing mainly on rural issues and health care, with few differences emerging.
Wynne’s pledge to appoint herself as minister of agriculture, food and rural affairs was the biggest surprise of a very tame event.

TORONTO – The Ontario Liberal leadership race kicks into gear Saturday with the first debate between the seven men and women running to become the next premier.
The candidates will square off in Ingersoll in southwestern Ontario this afternoon in the first of five scheduled debates before the leadership convention in Toronto Jan. 25-26.
It’ll be the first chance for most people to hear what the would-be premiers have to say and for the candidates to highlight the differences from their competitors, all of whom served in Dalton McGuinty’s cabinet at one time or another.
Kathleen Wynne, one of the perceived front-runners, says the candidates will have to attempt to stake out their own ground without treading too heavily on each other or the government’s record.
She says party members don’t want to see the candidates “ripping each other apart.”
