This leadership race, and this party, are too important to rest on long standing friendship, collegiality and knowledge about how a party is "supposed" to operate, alone. Every so often, a person who embodies Liberal values and the progressive aspirations of Ontarians comes along. Kate Graham is that person. A visionary, who has built a program for Ontario on the wellbeing of its citizens, not of its governors and parties. A woman who brings not only a different perspective to the decision-making table, but a more collaborative way of making decisions. I am proud to endorse Kate Graham for Leader of the OLP.
