THUNDER BAY – “As uncertainty clouds the global economy, jobs and our own Ontario economy will be our government’s priority. Projects like the expansion of the Rotman School of Management not only create jobs today, they help us attract great minds and talent for the future,” states Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.
The Premier made the comments earlier today at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management expansion project. The province is enlarging the facility. The Premier toured the new building, which is expected to open in May 2012. It will include more classroom space, a 400-seat event facility and be home to prestigious research centres including the Desautels Centre for Integrative Thinking and the Martin Prosperity Institute.
The new building will more than double the school’s size and increase its annual graduating class from 265 to 400 students.
Dalton McGuinty also announced that the Ontario Legislature will get back to work. The Premier will ask the Lieutenant Governor to convene the Legislature on November 21 for the election of a new Speaker, followed by the Speech from the Throne on November 22.
