What Leadership Is

The only thing that I’m afraid of in my political life is that we will not – we collectively will not find ways to do what’s in the best interest of the people of the province. If we get caught in the politicking and we make this about my political career or another leader’s political career, or a particular party, we miss the point.

The point is, are young people in this province going to have jobs? Are they going to have the education that they need to be prepared for the new economy? Are seniors in this community, in this province going to have the care that they need? Are we going to have transit and infrastructure that 50 years from now people will look back and they will say that government made a good decision. They actually made the investments that were needed. That’s the only thing that I fear, that we will not get there.

So I’m going to work with whomever will work with me to make sure that we make those long-term decisions. That’s what leadership is and that’s what I’m bringing to this job.
