Wynne can stay put for a while.

All commentators do it. They give advice. The quality of that advice is something for you to decide. This thought came up recently when Bob Hepburn of the Toronto Star suggested that former liberal premier Kathleen Wynne “will have to go.” His reasoning is interesting but believe me, her position today is neither an embarrassment nor a matter of any concern.

As much as Ms. Wynne was an annoyance in her final days in office, it is helpful right now for the party to have a member handy who understands the levers available to somebody in the premier’s office. The cut-down caucus also needs all the help it can get. She is doing the right thing, for a change

Bob Hepburn is an astute observer. He would have no idea of the problems facing a cut-down caucus. And Wynne will be long gone when the next election comes around in 2022.

The point is that the real changes that need to be made in how the liberals run their party, pay the party’s bills, defines its policies, chooses its leadership and its candidates have to be made by the party as a whole. It can no longer be a top-down party. It cannot be run autocratically by its leader. Ontario voters will have had enough of that style of leadership from Doug Ford and his conservatives.

After four years of Doug Ford incompetence, Ontario voters will be ready to switch to a democratically run liberal party. After all, if you want a government that is run “for the people” why would you look to a leader who is a tyrant.

Voters in Ontario have a right to a government that pledges clear and positive programs for its citizens. This includes health care that is fairly funded for all concerned, pharmacare that is hand in glove with Medicare, free education for all and a worry-free life for seniors. The opportunities are for the citizens in Ontario, not for the politicians and their friends.

Ontario is the engine that drives the Canadian economy, it has to be strong for the country to be strong.
