TORONTO, Jan. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - The Ontario Catholic School Trustees'

new leader of the Liberal Party and the next Premier of Ontario.

engagement of informed and collaborative provincial leaders. OCSTA
looks forward to working with Premier-designate Wynne and her cabinet

21st century learning opportunities and support the holistic development of
every student in this province," added Mr. Gazzola.
