Ontario’s next premier is Kathleen Wynne.
She won the leadership of the Ontario Liberal Party.
Since the Liberals are in power in the province, she will automatically become the premier as well.
Wynne’s closest competitor for the job was Sandra Pupatello.
The Liberals held a “leadership convention” to choose a new leader after Dalton McGuinty stepped down as leader and Ontario premier last October.
The convention was held on the weekend; Wynne was voted in on Saturday.
Liberal party members voted in Toronto, in three votes or “ballots.” Wynne won in the third ballot with 1,150 votes over Pupatello, who had 866 votes.
