Statement by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty

    TORONTO, May 23 /CNW/ -


    I want to thank Michael Bryant for his years of dedicated public service,
for his great passion for our democratic traditions, and for working hard to
create opportunity and build a better quality of life for Ontario families.
    Michael informed me on Friday that he was going to step aside as Minister
of Economic Development in order to pursue a new career as the President and
CEO of the City of Toronto's new economic development agency - Invest Toronto.
I will be assuming his responsibilities for the Ministry of Economic
    Since he was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 1999, Michael
has been a tireless advocate for the families in his riding of St. Paul's. He
has served in the Ontario cabinet in three challenging ministries - Attorney
General, Aboriginal Affairs, and Economic Development - in addition to heading
up Ontario's Democratic Renewal Secretariat. Michael has always tackled each
new role with his trademark enthusiasm, intelligence and energy.
    I know Michael will bring the same level of passion, insight and
commitment to his new role with Invest Toronto that he has brought to the
provincial government. I wish Michael, his wife Susan Abramovitch and their
kids Sadie and Louis all the best as they begin this latest chapter of their
lives, together.
