"Since entering the race Kate Graham has built a movement based on new way of doing politics. Kate Graham is the only candidate in the race proposing not just to focus on the policies that matter, but also to implement a new style of politics in Ontario - a style embodied by the word 'empowerment'. This new politics is about treating Ontarians with respect, not saying 'the government knows best'. It's about fixing our democracy and empowering people to help make decisions, not centralizing power in the premier's office. It's about restoring every Ontarian's faith in government as a force for good; about a democracy where citizens are welcomed and heard, not dismissed. She is the best candidate to reach out to younger voters, to voters turned off by politics, to voters outside the GTHA who felt abandoned by our party in government, and to provide a clear vision of progress and change at the head of a rejuvenated Ontario Liberal movement."
