Laura Steiner sits in for Joel as we discuss the late Hazel McCallion’s legacy for Mississauga and the 905 region. And we share some first impressions (recorded before Tuesday’s interview with Kate Graham – go and listen to it if you haven’t heard it yet) on the 40 Liberal insiders who have put their names to an attempt to co-opt Mike Schreiner from the Ontario Greens.
At 10am on Sunday former Ontario Liberal leadership hopeful Kate Graham posted an open letter on her Twitter account which certainly achieved something Ontario’s Liberals have not done too often lately–it got people talking about the Ontario Liberals.
The letter was a public invitation, signed by forty prominent Liberals, including such noteable party grandees as Greg Sorbara, Deb Matthews and Lyn McLeod, for Mike Schreiner, leader of the Ontario Green Party, to throw his hat into the ring to run for the Ontario Liberal leadership.
Kate Graham joins us today to answer these questions and more in a fascinating exclusive interview.
In the second of our interviews with Ontario party leaders, this week we are joined by Steven Del Duca, leader of the Ontario Liberal Party. The extent to which Del Duca can make an impact with Ontario voters over the next few weeks will be crucial in deciding whether the OLP and NDP split the progressive vote, or one of them is able to unite the public behind them enough to prevent a second term for Doug Ford.
