Mayor's Statement On Premier Designate Kathleen Wynne
January 28, 2013 -
I want to congratulate Member of Provincial Parliament Kathleen Wynne on being elected as the Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party and Ontario's 25th Premier this past weekend.
As a former Minister of Municipal Affairs, Ms. Wynne has a good understanding of the issues and challenges facing Ontario municipalities.
As MPPs return to the Ontario Legislature on February 19, I look forward to working with Ms. Wynne in the weeks/months to come on Kingston's priorities.
Moving forward, we are committed to seeking investment on a few big infrastructure projects like the Point Pleasant Water Treatment Plant and the expansion of John Counter Boulevard and will continue to work with the province on sustainable municipal funding options, including changes to the Heads and Beds levy. We also look forward to the continuation of the Provincial-Municipal upload agreement.
