Statement by Premier Dalton McGuinty on Prayer in the Legislature

    TORONTO, June 12 /CNW/ - Earlier this year I asked a Legislative
Committee to look for a more inclusive approach to the daily Opening
Ceremonies of the Ontario Legislature.
    I want to thank the members of the committee for their hard work and the
many Ontarians who expressed their views about their Legislature.
    Ontarians have shown once again that with a spirit of cooperation and
goodwill, we can resolve anything. And that's what has been done today.
    We have come together the Ontario way -- recognizing our traditions and
heritage while embracing and celebrating our diversity.
    The Legislature belongs to all of us and now its practices will reflect a
modern Ontario that is home to many faiths and creeds, and anticipates a
future every bit as open, and compassionate and respectful as the Ontario we
have built, together.
