article imageOntario Premier Dalton McGuinty announces new cabinet ministers

By Andrew Moran     Oct 20, 2011 in Politics
Toronto - After winning a minority government in this month's provincial election, Ontario Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty announced his cabinet. Some Members of Provincial Parliament stayed in their posts, while other MPPs were shifted to other posts.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty was given a mandate by the Ontario electorate for the third straight election year. One seat away from a majority government, McGuinty and his Liberals will rule with a minority of 53 seats out of the 107.
On Thursday, Queen’s Park will be swearing-in the new Ontario Liberal Cabinet. The new 22-member cabinet is down from 28 and was selected in order to “guide Ontario through global uncertainty.”
Although McGuinty shuffled around his cabinet ministers, many of the cabinet ministers have held positions before.
“A strong economy supports the roads we drive on, the communities we live in and the services we depend on, every day,” said McGuinty in a news release emailed to Digital Journal. “A strong economy creates the good jobs that provide for our families and gives us the confidence we need to get through difficult times. And a strong economy supports a good quality of life for all Ontarians — so it is also a means to that higher end that inspires our greatest efforts: a caring society.”
