    Liberal leader speaks to Niagara chamber

    Local

    This week the leader of Ontario’s Liberal Party made a presentation – virtually, of course – to the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) about his plans to govern the province, should he become premier in the next election expected to take place mid-2022.

    Steven Del Duca has been Liberal leader for just over a year now and has not done a great deal during that period to distinguish himself in the eyes of Ontario voters. Mind you, that is a tall order for someone who came to the role during a pandemic crisis, as Erin O’Toole is also finding out in the federal political arena.
