Kathleen Wynne says contrast between her and Doug Ford is 'stark'

Kathleen Wynne says contrast between her and Doug Ford is 'stark'

"To Kathleen Wynne, I say your days are numbered as premier".

Wynne says approximately 4,000 parents were consulted along with child development professionals to ensure the material was age-appropriate.

Doug Ford, who won the Ontario Tory leadership late Saturday, says he plans to repeal the Liberal curriculum and has promised to consult further with parents.

Following a long, drawn-out process to count then review the more than 64,000 electronic ballots cast by party members, Ford narrowly edged out former MPP Christine Elliott, party officials said.

Wynne noted that she and Ford were very different, and said her party will be focusing on policy in the weeks ahead.

"He welcomed me to do that and I think that we're going to work together very well".

Wynne also downplayed suggestions her party, which has been trailing behind the Tories in the polls, will ratchet up attacks on Ford. "I get that", she said.

"There's going to be a lot of conversations about the politics that we're in".

"People are looking for us to show that we can lead a government", she began. She added that the Progressive Conservatives need to show Ontarians that they are united.
