Alumni: Giving U of T more reasons to be proud

 

U of T alumna to become Ontario’s first female premier

University of Toronto alumna Kathleen Wynne will become Ontario premier in the next few days, the first woman to hold the highest public office in the province.

Wynne, 59, became Ontario Liberal party leader Saturday night at a convention at Maple Leaf Gardens, defeating five challengers. She will replace Dalton McGuinty, who announced his retirement as premier last October.
