Ontario's Place in the 21st Century

LSE public lecture

Dalton McGuinty is Premier of Ontario, Canada's economic powerhouse.

He led his party to a second-consecutive majority government in October 2007 and is Ontario’s 24th Premier. He was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 1990 in Ottawa South and has been re-elected four times.

During his years as a backbench MPP, he served as a critic for energy, colleges and universities, native affairs and the environment. In 1996, Dalton McGuinty was elected leader of the Ontario Liberal Party. His first election campaign as leader was in 1999, when the Liberal party received 40 per cent of the popular vote, winning 35 seats and adding nine new caucus members. In the general election of 2003, Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals formed the government, taking 72 seats with 47 per cent of the vote. Premier McGuinty’s campaign to build a stronger Ontario for a stronger Canada led the country’s leading newsmagazine, Maclean’s, to call him “Mr. Ontario.”

Before entering politics, Dalton McGuinty practised law in Ottawa. He has a law degree from the University of Ottawa and a science degree from McMaster University in Hamilton. He met his wife Terri, an elementary school teacher, when they were both still high school students in Ottawa. They have been married 27 years and have four children.
