When Kathleen Wynne won the Liberal leadership race, I had a feeling that developments on the ONTC front would start to move quickly. It looks like I might be right. Rick Bartolucci has decided to step down as Minister for Northern development and Mines and will not run at the next election. His leadership saw the announcement of the sale of the ONTC, a decision he has always stood by, and it is unclear whether that plan is compatible with Wynne's vision for the north. Did he feel he would lose his cabinet post anyway? Did he think he might not win his seat again at the next election? Maybe both?
