New Environment Minister appointed

Premier Dalton McGuinty has seen fit to replace his Environment Minister.

John Wilkinson was most recently the Minister of Revenue where he most recently shepherded the HST into existence with virtually no backlash.

Whether his appointment is a good thing or not remains to be seen as he has virtually no track record on environmental issues. We can hope that this indicates a blank slate with a willingness to listen.

We are currently preparing letters for the website which will be addressed to the new minister.
