On­tario’s old­est MPP won’t run for re-elec­tion

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

On­tario’s old­est sit­ting MPP has an­nounced he will not seek re-elec­tion in 2018. Eighty-six-year-old Monte Kwin­ter has rep­re­sented the Lib­eral Party in York Cen­tre for the past 32 years. Kwin­ter, who has served in mul­ti­ple cabi­net po­si­tions, says it’s been a priv­i­lege to serve his com­mu­nity for such a long time. Premier Kath­leen Wynne called Kwin­ter a stal­wart ex­am­ple to MPP’s of all stripes, and an im­por­tant rep­re­sen­ta­tive for his con­stituency and the Jewish com­mu­nity. She also ap­plauded Kwin­ter on lead­ing On­tario to be the first pro­vin­cial or state gov­ern­ment to es­tab­lish a per­ma­nent trade re­la­tion in In­dia in the 1980s. Kwin­ter says the time has come for the next gen­er­a­tion to serve.
