Premier's Statement On The Passing Of Kim Jong-il
"Ontarians recognize that Kim Jong-il's death presents new challenges for North Korea and its people. But it also represents a historic opportunity for the people of North Korea to engage in a new way with the international community, and in particular with their South Korean neighbours.
For Korean Ontarians, and all Ontarians, this is an important time in history.
It is our hope that this will begin a new era of peace and security on the Korean Peninsula, and a better quality of life for the people of North Korea."
