WATCH: Wynne to recall legislature on July 2nd
Premier speaks in front of her office the day after winning a majority
5 0

July 2nd is the magic date for those at Queen's Park.

That's when Kathleen Wynne says Ontario's Lieutenant Governor agreed to bring the legislature back.

She met with David Onley on Friday morning to hammer out the details.

Getting back to work means MPPs and cabinet will be sworn in, a throne speech will be read and a budget will be tabled.

Wynne says she's working on fulfilling campaign promises as soon as possible, such as capping hospital parking fees for those who make frequent visits.

Also on the top of her priority list: bringing back the committee looking into the gas plant scandal to write it's report and make recommendations to the government.

Wynne was also pressed by reporters on if this means she'll drop the Libel suit against Tim Hudak and the Tories, after they alleged she oversaw email deletion in the scandal.

She wouldn't give a definitive answer yet, only saying she hasn't spoken with her lawyers her lawyers yet.

    ♫ It's the end of the world as we know it, it's theeee end of the world as we know it, it's theeeeee end of ONTARIO as we know it, and I feel FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE ♫

    By the end of the year, you'll all be enjoying welfare with me! It's amazing: You don't get a lot of money, but you get it forever and for free! Besides, with too much money and freedom, you only get yourself into trouble; that's why I'm so glad Wynne won, the Liberal party really does know better than I do what I need.

    Money technically does grow on trees, but Kathleen Wynne is taking it a bit too literally ;p

    To all the people who think that most people in Ontario must like the liberals because they got a majority... Over two thirds of the Ontario voters don't like the liberals, and voted against them. They got in with less than 1/3 of the vote. Definitely not my definition of a landslide, seeing as over 2/3 of the province didn't want them.
