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.
