Ontario wants stronger relationship with Quebec

Premier Wynne proposes joint-provincial cabinet meetings

Now that the Liberals are in power again in Quebec, Ontario's Liberal government wants to open a dialogue with the province with hopes of some mutually beneficial investments in the future.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says she was in Ontario's cabinet when Former premiers Dalton McGuinty and Jean Charest had joint-provincial cabinet meetings. She wants to keep that tradition alive.

And it's something she wants to talk to Quebec premier-elect Phillip Couillard about. She says it will open the lines of communication between Ontario and Quebec, pointing specifically to trade and infrastructure projects.

Wynne stresses it's important for Ontario to work well with other provinces, specifically Manitoba and Quebec - the ones it shares borders with.

She adds it will also help forge a relationship between provinces so there will be a united front on issues with the federal government.

Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak also commented on the Quebec election results, underlining that his Canada includes 10 provinces. The leader of the opposition at Queen's Park says he hopes he'll have the opportunity if elected premier to work closely with Quebec.

    I'm sure Couillard wants to know the Ontario Liberals secret of "stealing" billions, lying incessantly, and mismanaging the economy to the point of ruin, yet still get re-elected time after time.

    The difference is Quebec's voters are intelligent, unlike Ontario Liberal voters.

    Quebec is the most corrupt province in Canada, it won't take long for the scandals to start coming soon after this Liberal Government gets going.

    You would hope Wynne's Government gets their butts kicked in the next election but I think the Union vote will keep the these criminals in power.

    For starters it woudl be nice to outlaw the use of french anywhere in Ontario Government. Just like they outlawed English in Quebec. Did you hear one elected droid yesterday say one word in English?
