Former Premier Dalton McGuinty has officially resigned as OLP MPP one day after the spring legislature finishes until September 9th for the summer break. It's an interesting, even puzzling story full of QP hijinks, a police investigation and a broken promise to stick around until the next election. The news links are below:
