Historic night for Ontario: First woman / First openly LGBT Premier!

I have to congratulate Kathleen Wynne on a victory well-earned. She did it by bringing three out of her four male rivals over to her side at today's Ontario Liberal leadership convention in Toronto. The left-centre-right coalition put her over the top and gave her a victory over Sandra Pupatello, who was attempting to make a comeback to provincial politics.

I supported Pupatello in this race. But I admire Kathleen greatly and this victory is testament to her strength as a political candidate and a leader. It's a stunning achievement.

Wynne will now bring her unique brand and stamp on the provincial government. I have a feeling that she's going to impress many. I'll be fighting to keep her in the premier's office in the next election and continuing a Liberal government for Ontario.

I shot the video above tonight of Wynne as she arrived at her victory party in downtown Toronto.
