    Friends - I am very proud of the campaign effort that you helped to make possible. My name was on the banners and the ballot, but our campaign was fuelled by a shared commitment to change, and by volunteer ideas and efforts. The personal sacrifices that so many made, taking precious time from family, holidays and work made a difference. The change we stood for over 76 days mattered. Change to increase meaningful political engagement of Party members and of residents. Change toward a new culture of enterprising action to transform government and challenge our other sectors. Change to deliver labour peace, equality for women and new Canadians, an economy that would reduce youth unemployment and increase people’s individual potential, as well as an expressly stronger voice for youth in our Party. The Kennedy Team delegates and volunteers in attendance were a vibrant presence at the Convention, impressing observers and other campaigns alike. We did earn a possible path to victory and the fact it did not emerge was no reflection on your efforts. Our caucus “huddle” with everyone after 2nd ballot to discuss not only my fate as candidate, but that of the convention, surprised many. It was entirely consistent with the spirit of genuine democratic participation that marked our campaign. There can only be one Leader, and I know you will join with me in fully supporting our wonderful Premier-designate Kathleen Wynne in her leadership of the party and the province going forward. There are many winners, however, in a process that infuses the party with new outlooks and hopes and ambitions. The renewal we advanced will no doubt be evident in the weeks and months ahead. I encourage you to stay involved to help. Thank you for all your tremendous support for me and for a better Ontario. It was a privilege to be your candidate. Personally, I greatly appreciate the faith and trust you placed in me. It gives me new enthusiasm to contribute in some way in future. For now, I relish the chance to make up time with my kids and enjoy what is an unusual role for me as private citizen. Best regards, Gerard Kennedy PS. Please stay in touch. I am grateful for all the thoughtful messages, calls and offers of support for my future political endeavours. As soon as I make any decisions, you will definitely be among the first to know. Below are some details for our Volunteer Appreciation Party this Friday night. I hope you can join me for an evening of thanks dedicated to you and all our amazing volunteers. Volunteer Appreciation Party Friday, February 1st |6pm-11pm | 1262 Don Mills Rd, North York, Toronto, M3B 2W7 |Questions? dbrunsdon@gerardkennedy.ca or (647) 654-4439 or (226) 700-6517 Chers amis, Je suis très fier de la campagne que vous avez rendue possible. Mon nom figurait sur les bannières et sur le scrutin, mais notre campagne était alimentée par un dévouement au changement partagé ainsi que par les efforts et les idées des bénévoles. Vos sacrifices personnels, prenant du temps précieux de vos familles, de vos vacances et de votre travail, ont fait une différence. Le changement que nous représentions pendant plus de 76 jours était important. Un changement pour augmenter l'engagement politique des membres du Parti et des simples citoyens. Un changement vers une nouvelle culture d'action entreprenante pour transformer le gouvernement et pour lancer le défi à nos autres secteurs. Un changement pour livrer la paix ouvrière, l'égalité pour les femmes et pour les Canadiens nouveaux, une économie qui réduirait le chômage des jeunes et qui augmenterait le potentiel des individus, ainsi qu’une voix plus puissante pour la jeunesse dans notre Parti. Les délégués et les bénévoles de l'Équipe Kennedy étaient une présence vitale au congrès. Nous avons gagné un sentier possible à la victoire. Que cette victoire ne s'est pas produite ne reflète pas vos efforts. Notre consultation en caucus après le deuxième scrutin où nous avons discuté non seulement mon destin comme candidat, mais aussi celui du congrès, a surpris plusieurs. C'était entièrement consistent avec l'esprit de participation réelle démocratique qui a marqué notre campagne. Il ne peut y avoir qu’un seul Chef et je sais que vous allez vous joindre à moi pour appuyer complètement notre merveilleuse première ministre désignée Kathleen Wynne en sa direction du parti et de la province. Il y a plusieurs gagnants, quand même, dans un processus qui a imprégné le Parti de nouveaux perspectifs et espoirs ainsi que de nouvelles ambitions. Le renouvellement que nous avons avancé sera sans doute évident dans les semaines et les mois à venir. Je vous encourage à rester engagés pour rester impliqué. Je tiens à vous remercier de votre appui formidable pour moi ainsi que pour un Ontario meilleur. C'était un privilège d'être votre candidat. J'apprécie la foi et la confiance que vous avez placées en moi. Cela me donne un nouvel enthousiasme pour contribuer à l'avenir. Actuellement, je savoure l'occasion de rattraper un peu le temps perdu avec mes enfants et de prendre du plaisir à occuper un rôle unique en tant que simple citoyen. Cordialement, Gerard Kennedy PS. Veuillez rester en contact avec moi. Je suis très reconnaissant de tous les messages, appels et offre de soutien pour mes actions politiques de l'avenir. Le moment où je prends des décisions, vous allez certainement être les premiers avec qui je les partagerai. Veuillez trouver ci-dessous des détails pour notre Fête d'Appréciation pour les Bénévoles ce vendredi soir. J'espère que vous pouvez vous me rejoindre pour une soirée de remerciement organisé pour vous et pour toutes les personnes extraordinaires qui se sont portées bénévoles.

    Congrats to all elected delegates. And thank you to all who ran. This weekend is not about us as leadership candidates. It’s about you — how you see our task for this province, and our ability to get Ontario working again. I trust we will come out of this process a fully renewed Liberal Party at its best, ready to tackle all the province’s challenges thanks to the leadership, energy, and dedication that members like you will demonstrate this weekend. Regardless of who you voted for, I want to thank you for voting. Standing up to have your voice heard is the first step to unleashing our province’s and our Party’s potential.

    A quick note to those of you who joined the Ontario Liberal Party to vote for the next leader, as well as to those who have put your name forward and are standing as delegates this weekend. It takes courage and commitment to put your name on any ballot. This weekend is not about us as leadership candidates. It's about you -- how you see our task for this province, and our ability to get Ontario working again. I trust we will come out of this process a fully renewed Liberal Party at its best, ready to tackle all the province's challenges thanks to the leadership, energy, and dedication that members like you will demonstrate this weekend. Regardless of who you're voting for or running for, I wanted to thank you for standing up as the first step to unleash our province's and our Party's potential. Good luck this weekend. I hope to see you at convention. Gerard
