Dalton McGuinty releases ‘Farewell to Ontarians’ YouTube video

Ahead of this weekend's Ontario Liberal Party leadership convention in Toronto, outgoing premier Dalton McGuinty is saying goodbye to Ontarians — via YouTube.

The slick production, posted on Thursday, features a montage of pictures, video-clips and some black and white home-movies to uplifting background music.

While McGuinty shies away from talking about his legacy in the video, he does highlight those things most important to him: quality education, a clean environment, safe communities and a growing economy with good jobs.

The convention to replace McGuinty begins on Friday. The next premier of the province should be announced on Saturday afternoon.
