TORONTO -- Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty today announced that he has asked the Lieutenant Governor to convene the Legislature and present his government's plan for implementing real, positive change in the upcoming Speech from the Throne.

"We're getting right to work on defeating the Tory deficit, achieving results that make a difference in the lives of people and creating a future of hope and opportunity for Ontario," Premier McGuinty said.

The House will convene for the First Session of the 38th Parliament of Ontario at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 19, for the election of a new Speaker. The Honourable James K. Bartleman, Ontario's Lieutenant Governor, will deliver the Speech from the Throne on Thursday, November 20.

The government will bring forward an ambitious legislative and policy agenda that addresses the priorities that matter most to the people of Ontario.

"Ontarians have given us clear marching orders to fix their schools and hospitals while living within our means," Premier McGuinty said. "Our first session is an important step towards meeting that commitment."
