Having a fair society with opportunity for everyone is possible in Ontario, says Premier Kathleen Wynne.

But there are no “easy answers” to the challenges Ontarians are facing, she said.

“There are dark sides to the progress that we are making,” Wynne told delegates during the Ontario Economic Summit in Niagara-on-the-Lake Friday.

“But we can’t put our heads in the sand, we can’t throw up our hands and say, ‘you know what, it’s just all too hard, I’m going to look backwards and find a place in the past that felt better, or seems like it was better.’ We have to move forward, we have to look at all the challenges that we’re confronting, and look at who’s being affected by those challenges, and do our damnedest not to leave people behind.”
