Ontario’s Premier Dad relinquishing top job
TORONTO – Premier Dalton McGuinty, currently the longest-serving premier in Canada, will be saying goodbye today as he relinquishes Ontario’s top job after nine years.
After winning three elections — a feat unmatched by the provincial Liberals in more than a century— McGuinty is set to deliver his swan song following a grandiose tribute tonight at the former Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto.
It’s the same building where McGuinty was selected as the party’s leader in 1996, after an all-night convention where the fourth-place candidate managed an upset victory.
