WATCH: Premier takes to Reddit on her anniversary
Kathleen asked hundreds of questions
0 0


On her first anniversary as premier, Kathleen Wynne is trying her hand at reaching out to residents over the Internet going on the website Reddit to answer questions.

It's part of their  Ask Me Anything chats.

Wynne sat at a desk in a boardroom in her Queen's Park office, a screen projecting hundreds of questions - over 700 were asked.  Because of timing and length, she was only able to answer 10 during the hour-long session.

Most of the questions were on policy, things like transit expansion, alcohol in corner stores and pubic sector executive salaries.

When asked about provincial money for Mississauga transit,  Wynne joked "Hazel, is that you?! I told you, I've got your back on this." She was referring to Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion. Wynne then says she wants to invest in transit all across the GTHA.

She was also asked for her favourite book and she listed off a few, but says for the longest time it was Margaret Laurence's "The Stone Angel".

The most amusing question - a popular one in AMA chats: Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?

She didn't answer that online but told reporters with a laugh that she would pick horses.
