Statement by NDP Leader Andrea Horwath

“On behalf of Ontario New Democrats I want to congratulate Premier Wynne on her swearing in, and the new members of cabinet.

“The Legislature will be returning in just over a week, and I look forward to getting back to work and delivering some real positive results for the people who elected us. Last week I wrote a letter to Premier Wynne, setting out achievable, affordable goals that will create and protect jobs, strengthen our healthcare system and make life a little more affordable. My team and I are ready to roll up our sleeves and make life better for the people who sent us here.”
