Ontario Gets Its First Woman Premier And Canada's First Out LGBT Premier

Kathleen Wynne now leads Ontario's liberal party and becomes the province's first female premier. She also is married to a woman, making her Canada's first out LGBT premier.

Chris Geidner BuzzFeed Staff

With 1,150 votes to Sandra Pupatello's 866 votes on the third ballot at the Ontario Liberal leadership convention on Saturday, Kathleen Wynne was elected to lead the party and becomes Ontario's first female premier  and Canada's first out LGBT premier.

Wynne, 59, is married to Jane Rounthwaite, and the party's new leader said she believed her sexual orientation would not be an issue in the race or going forward.

'The province has changed, our party has changed,' she said earlier in the balloting. 'I do not believe that the people of Ontario ... hold that prejudice in their hearts.' After the third balloting, Wynne said, 'It is a remarkable night for all of us.' full story: http://www.buzzfeed.com/chrisgeidner/ontario-gets-its-first-woman-premier-and-its-first
