Premier Kathleen Wynne says she's standing up for fairness.

She was officially nominated as the Liberal Candidate in her riding of Don Valley West yesterday.

Wynne says she'll continue to run on a campaign promoting fairness and opportunity.

“People see that jobs are being created, but their wages are stagnant. Their paycheque doesn’t go as far as it used to. The system has changed. People are working harder than ever and they still can’t get ahead. In a place like Ontario, with all the work we’ve done to build a strong and growing economy, that isn’t good enough. It isn’t fair to workers and their families. We can do better, and with our plan for fairness and opportunity we will.”

The Premier also spoke of the choice voters will face in the next provincial election.

“To lead this province, you have to have a plan to meet people’s real challenges head-on. They don’t have a plan. We do. It isn’t good enough to go around saying you believe in inclusion and diversity and fairness. You actually have to have a plan that reflects those values. Your actions have to reflect those values.”

During her speech, she also referenced her canoe trip through northwestern Ontario this past summer with a group of Metis youth.
