In a surprise move, Premier of Ontario Dalton McGuinty
Globe and Mail
The Premier has been embroiled in a number of battles recently:
Cabinet members are facing a contempt motion
over lack of disclosure related to the cancellation of a gas plant
, which cost Ontario a significant amount of many and was, according to opposition, decided for political reasons due to a set of by-elections, in which the Ontario government failed to achieve a majority government.
Ontario teachers have been in slowdown/unofficial "work-to-rule" due to disputes
over the Putting Students First Act
, which, among other things, prohibits a strike by teachers. A court challenge to this Bill has been launched.
Mr. McGuinty will retain his seat in the Legislative Assembly, and will remain Premier until a successor is chosen.
