Gerard Kennedy is the latest Liberal leadership candidate to say he would reconsider the sale of the ONTC. This trend presents an interesting question: exactly what percentage of the Liberal party supported the divestment of the ONTC in the first place? Of course, calling for a rethink might also be a way to gain votes from northern delegates. Unlike Murray or Sousa, Kennedy does now expect to retain the ONTC in it existing form. Rather, he wants to see how it can more effectively serve the economy and passenger needs of the north. This sounds very much like what the ONTC unions have been wanting for the better part of a decade.
