[BRIEF NOTE] On Kathleen Wynne, premier-designate of Ontario

Over the weekend, Kathleen Wynne was voted in a Liberal Party of Ontario assembly to be leader of the provincial party. In Canada, operating under British parliamentary rules, since the Liberal Party currently forms the government of Ontario this means that Wynne is now premier.

Over at his blog, Jeff Jedras blogged about his experience as a non-voting delegate watching the three rounds of voting.

Elsewhere, Wonkman notes that it's a sign of the success of the gay rights movement in Ontario and Canada as a whole that Wynne's sexual orientation and her female partner was not a strike against Wynne. A certain amount of celebration, in fact, is called for.
