The Province: Wynne talks infrastructure and transit on inaugural show

Premier hosted Sunday's show, Hudak and Horwath to follow

Premier Kathleen Wynne can now add radio host to her resume.

Sunday, she sat in the host chair at the Newstalk 1010 studios for the inaugural edition of a new show, The Province.

She sounded a little nervous at the outset, perhaps a bit overwhelmed by all the buttons, screens, traffic and commercial breaks.

As promised, the premier focused her attention on infrastructure, what she called the "bones of the province."

"It's the roads, it's the bridges, it's the schools, it's the hospital," she said.

Transportation was something many callers wanted to talk about, specifically federal funding for transportation and transit.

The Wynne's message was that Canada needs a national infrastructure strategy. She said the federal government does fund projects, but the money is not steady or predictable.

Next Sunday, PC leader Tim Hudak will take the host seat. The NDP's Andrea Horwath is up the following Sunday.

      @john I'm not one usually prone to this, but whenever she opens her mouth to talk, she honestly makes my skin crawl.

      I would take the foolishness (and folksiness) of Sarah Palin any day over Kathleen Wynne. Not that either is really credible in their spiel.
      But at least one is more pleasant to at least look at.

    Apparently Kathleen Wynne "...she sounded a little nervous at the outset..."

    Any wonder why...I'm sure it has nothing to do with the OPP constantly on her doorstep. Or the fact they could be tuning in to the show as well- probably picking up on clues- or slip-ups...

    Wynne talks about Federal funding for transportation that isn't steady or predictable. She's more used to her Liberal steadiness and predictability.....in "stealing" billions from taxpayers, in lying to voters about taxes and raising public service remuneration, and in the gross incompetence of her party that is predictably and steadily flushing this province down the fiscal sewer.
