He was appointed minister of finance by Premier Dalton McGuinty in 2003, and served as campaign chair for the Liberals three consecutive election victories — the first time that had happened in more than a century.First elected in 1985, Sorbara was also in the cabinet of Premier David Peterson — the first Liberal leader elected in Ontario in forty-two years. Through his quarter-century of public life in the province, Sorbara had an enviable record of introducing new policies to help Ontarians, while having the guts to raise taxes to pay for those programs. A reinvigorated health-care system, the Ontario Child Benefit, and a subway to York University all have Sorbaras fingerprints on them.In Greg Sorbara: The Battlefield of Ontario Politics, the author brings you into the back rooms of the Ontario Liberal Party as some of the most significant changes in Ontarios political history are made. He also gives readers an insiders view of his partys election strategies and dispels the myths surrounding the controversial gas plants cancellations.
