In 2013, Kathleen Wynne became Ontario’s Liberal Premier of Ontario.  She was elected to the Ontario legislature in 2003 in the Toronto riding of Don Valley West, and in the ten years since she has served as a cabinet minister in a number of high-profile ministries, including Education, Transportation, Municipal Affairs and Housing, and Aboriginal Affairs.  Wynne believes that “people want government to succeed.  They want good things for their kids.  I’m trying to be as accessible as possible because people want to talk to me and I want to hear from them.  That gives me courage”.
