WATCH: Liberal caucus meets at Queen's Park

Positive meeting compared to the Tory gathering on Monday

It was a Liberal love-in at Queen's Park on Tuesday as all 58 MPPs met after their majority win last week.

Standing in front of a crowd of MPPs who jumped to their feet when she entered the room, Kathleen Wynne thanked them and party staff for last week's election result.

Wynne pointed to things which she believes helped them get  a majority, from an Ontario Pension plan to building roads and bridges. She says it's all part of what she calls her "activist-centrist" approach.

Wynne says they have a lot of work to do to keep the trust of those who voted for them and to earn the trust of everyone.

Both veteran MPPs and new faces were in the crowd.

It was in stark contrast to the Tories get together yesterday which had some calling for leader Tim Hudak's head.

Up next for the Liberals: a new-look cabinet, a throne speech, and a budget.

    We could have had a government that would have helped the poor by stimulating job creation. Instead we have one that's going to create more poor by penalizing job creation, and blow what little money remains on an "activist-centrist" approach.

    But THANK GOD all of our public-sector bureaucrats are still employed!

      @This Is What You Wanted Or we might have had a government that cut services and gouged education and healthcare.

      Luckily, we don't.

      @Fact Provider Actually, we do. How do you think she's going to balance the budget? Can't do it without cutting the two areas that cost the most: healthcare and education.

      @Fact Provider Government run services should not run by union led sloths. Education and healthcare NEED to be privatized and lazy people will be forced to work to survive instead of sitting at home waiting for their next dime to come in.

      God HELP this province of Wynne supporters.

    You can take that Ontario pension plan and shove it up your hairy arse, Wynne. I want no part of forking over even more money to the liberals so they can misspend and mismanage it into the liberal black hole, where all tax money goes.

    No, Ontario didn't vote you in so you could force us to give you money for an Ontario pension. 2/3 of us didn't vote for you, so 2/3 of us don't want your pension plan. Once again, the idiot few in Toronto are holding the entire province hostage.

      @Angry Bill Wrong as usual, Angry Bill.

      40 of the 57 seats won by the Liberals are from outside of Toronto.

      Nice try, though.

      @Sammy from Scarborough 40 of 58, not 57 - sorry about that.

      The Libs won so many more than all the experts predicted that it's getting more difficult to keep track (lol).

      @Sammy from Scarborough Your "wrong as usual" statement is, in itself, a testimony to you being wrong as usual.

      I say Toronto, meaning the GTA. And a couple of other cities here and there, for example, a portion of London. But basically, Toronto. Meaning the GTA, seeing as you have difficulty comprehending it.

      @Angry Bill Thank you for clearing up my difficulty with your words.

      So "Once again, the idiot few in Toronto are holding the entire province hostage." (your words) actually means "I say Toronto, meaning the GTA. And a couple of other cities here and there, for example, a portion of London" (also your words).

      Gee, Angry Bill - thanks again for the clarification.

      Once again, for your edification 40 of the 58 seats won by the Liberals are outside of Toronto.

      Get a map - get a brain - get a grip !!
