THUNDER BAY, ON   -----  February 11, 2012  ---   Michael Gravelle back as  Minister of Northern Development and Mines and Bill Mauro
 Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
All 10 MPPs who supported her in the Jan. 26 Liberal leadership contest will serve in her executive council, which expanded to 27 members from McGuinty’s 23. larger Cabinet than McGuinty's

Kathleen Wynne has been sworn in as premier of Ontario, becoming the province’s first female leader and Canada’s first openly gay premier.

She is  under fire for the politically-motivated cancellations of two gas plants, that will cost taxpayers at least $230 million.
 
Public school teachers — their longtime allies — are furious that the Liberals imposed two-year contracts that cut benefits and froze most of their wages. Laurel Broten, who loyally tried to sell Mr. McGuinty’s education reversal, was demoted for her efforts.

Reforming social assistance is also a top priority for the Wynne government. Ted McMeekin, the new Minister of Community and Social Services, will begin to implement recommendations of the Social Assistance Review panel led by Frances Lankin and Munir Sheikh.

Ontario Premier needs to talk to her cabinet about not spending more than they take in rather talking about raising taxes the first day in office.
