New Premier, New ONTC Dialogue

Kathleen Wynne has only been in Ontario's top job for a few days, but already concerned groups and individuals from northern Ontario are lining up to make their case for a new direction for the ONTC and for the north of the province in general.

North Bay mayor Al McDonald is hopeful that Wynne will listen to concerns from northern Ontario.  His sentiment is echoed by the ONTC unions and FONOM. 

On the other hand, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli isn't so optomistic, suggesting that the first two days have resembled McGuinty's premiership.  Fedeli has requested a meeting with Wynne to push his plan to move the ONTC to the Ministry of Transport.

Parliament resumes on February 19 and it is expected to be a busy session as Wynne deals with new issues as well as addressing concerns about her predecessor's policies.
