WATCH: Wynne is election-ready

The Premier sat down with Newstalk 1010 to speak about what was and what's to come

Rob Ford, scandals and an expected election.

Premier Kathleen Wynne sat down with Newstalk 1010 to reflect on 2013 and look forward to the year ahead.

Wynne says she is willing to head to the polls over transit funding tools, a plan which is expected to be outlined in the spring budget. The premier wouldn't tip her hand as to her plan, only emphasizing money collected in other parts of the province will be used locally and money collected in the GTHA would be used for transit expansion.

It's a line she's been using when asked about a gas tax hike of up to 10 cents proposed by a panel she put together on the matter.

On a year filled with scandal, Wynne says she was aware that her office might face some challenges this year but underlines changes at Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Ornge needed to happen. As did the gas plant cancellations.

Wynne also touched briefly on Toronto's troubled mayor. Wynne says she didn't think she would be speaking as much as she had about Rob Ford. Wynne has been questioned on Ford daily after the chief of police revealed the existence of the so-called crack video.

As fro what she wants from Santa, Wynne says personally it would be to spend time with her family. Professionally, she wants to find to make investments that are needed fro this province.

    The sooner the better! Republic of Toronto, you need to throw these Liberals out of office! The rest of the province has very few Liberal (a.k.a) Librano and (a.k.a) Fiberal seats. The republic of Toronto is the last place where these Liberals have seats.

    Throw them out now!

      @Mike from the hinterland Won't happen. Toronto residents want everything and want everyone else to pay for it. Why should someone in Cambridge pay an extra 10 cents a litre for gas so Toronto can have new subways?

      @john As much as I'm not a Hudak fan, there is no time to find another leader- so he better get his act together. Defeating the Liberals, with such excessive baggage (to put it lightly), should be a walk in the park.
