Premier Wynne to Host Public Town Hall in Windsor

Ontario Seeking Input on Plan to Create More Fairness and Opportunity for Everyone

Office of the Premier

Premier Kathleen Wynne is inviting people to join her at an open public forum in Windsor to discuss how to create more fairness and opportunity in Southwestern Ontario in this period of rapid economic change.

The Premier's fifth Town Hall will take place today, Thursday, February 15 at the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts at 201 Riverside Drive West in Windsor and will be moderated by former CAW president Ken Lewenza. Admission to the event is free and open to anyone who wishes to share their thoughts on the issues affecting them and their communities. All questions are welcome.

Since kicking off the provincewide town hall forums last November, the Premier has met with over 1,000 people of all ages across Ontario, hearing their stories and discussing a range of issues, from the minimum wage to health care to international trade.

General admission seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., and the Premier's Town Hall will start at 7:00 p.m. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to RSVP. Please note, an RSVP does not guarantee admission but helps ensure that adequate seating is available.

Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.

Quotes

“I believe personal connections are key to any healthy democracy — there is no replacing that face-to-face engagement when it comes to truly understanding someone’s issue or concern. Through these in-person conversations, people across Ontario have reminded me how passionate and informed they are about the issues affecting their lives and communities. That’s what motivates me, and it’s why I look forward to continuing the conversation in Windsor, and hearing ideas from people in Southwestern Ontario about how we can work together to build a fairer, better province for everyone.”

Kathleen Wynne

Premier of Ontario
