Thanks to Equal Voice Toronto for honouring me last week with the EVE Award, recognizing Women in Public Life. I'm very grateful to be chosen this year. I had the opportunity to say a few words at the awards about the challenges we faced last week, and the challenges women face in politics, but also about my own hope, optimism and vision for a better province. Please watch and share. Thank you.

Today at Queens Park we debate the #ONDP Bill to take the #HST off home heating. We will fight to make life more affordable for people!

Our plan is simple — Create a job in the province, get a tax cut.

ONT drivers have least accidents & pay highest auto insurance rates in Canada. Time to overhaul the industry, we need a break! #ONpoli #ondp

Today I announced my 5 point action plan for my first 100 days as Premier. I will put people first!

Jobs first – Lower taxes for small business and companies that invest in jobs and ensure public money and natural resources aren’t sent out of Ontario when they can create jobs here.
Affordability – Take the HST off daily essentials like hydro and home heating and start removing it from gas, freeze post-secondary tuition and childcare fees, and set a weekly cap gas prices.
Strengthen healthcare – Cutting emergency room waits by eliminating wait list for home care and acute long term care and putting a cap on hospital CEO salaries.
Affordable green choices – Rewarding green efforts with tax credits of up to $5000 to homeowners who retrofit their homes and partner with Cities to freeze transit fares and improve service.
Live within our means – Take action to balance the budget by 2017-18 by cutting consultants and scrapping corporate tax giveaways.

Slinging beer at the Fox and Fiddle Pub in North Bay. Reminds me of my university waitressing days!
