Early life and career

Pupatello was born Sandra Pizzolitto on October 6, 1962 in Windsor, Ontario. She became politically active by campaigning for Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) Herb Gray in the 1970s.[1] She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Windsor (1986).[2] She remained in the city after her graduation, serving as general manager of the city's Rotary Club and executive director of the Essex County Kidney Foundation of Canada.[3] She was also a board member of the Windsor Regional Hospital and Windsor Regional Children's Centre, and was president of the Fogular Furlan Club. Pupatello was named "Italian of the Year" for Windsor-Essex County in 1996, received the Charlie Clark Award for Outstanding Service from the University of Windsor in 2001, and was named "Windsor Woman of the Year" in 2003.[4] October 6 is the 279th day of the year (280th in leap years). ... 1962 (MCMLXII) was a common year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1962 calendar). ...

In opposition

Pupatello was first elected to the Ontario legislature in the 1995 provincial election, defeating New Democratic Party candidate Arlene Rousseau by 5,526 votes in Windsor—Sandwich. The seat had previously been held by New Democrat George Dadamo, who did not seek re-election. The Progressive Conservative Party won a majority government in the election, and Pupatello entered the legislature as an opposition Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP). During her first term, she served as Official Opposition Critic for Community and Social Services, Children's issues, Youth Issues, and the Management Board of Cabinet.

Pupatello was re-elected by a landslide in the 1999 provincial election for the redistributed constituency of Windsor West, while the Progressive Conservatives were re-elected to a second consecutive majority government.

She was a vocal critic of the Mike Harris and Ernie Eves administrations, frequently criticizing cutbacks to child care and other programs.[7] In 1997, she introduced a Private Member's Resolution intended to stop cutbacks to hospital funding.[8] She later criticized the Progressive Conservative government's plans to introduce a private MRI clinic, arguing that it posed a long-term threat to public health-care.[9] Michael Deane Harris (born January 23, 1945, in Toronto, Ontario) was the twenty-second Premier of Ontario from June 26, 1995 to April 15, 2002. ...

In government

The Liberal Party won a majority government in the 2003 provincial election, and Pupatello was again re-elected in Windsor West with a significant majority. On October 23, 2003, she was appointed to cabinet as Minister of Community and Social Services with responsibility for Women's Issues. There was some speculation that she would be appointed Deputy Premier as well, but this position was instead left vacant until George Smitherman's appointment in 2006.[10] Pupatello has been described as a possible candidate for the leadership of the Ontario Liberal Party when Dalton McGuinty retires.[11] Map of Ontarios ridings and their popular vote for their party elected The Ontario Legislature after the 2003 election. ...

Minister of Community and Social Services

Pupatello's most important responsibility in the Community and Social Services portfolio was overseeing Ontario's welfare and disability assistance system. Shortly after taking office, she announced that her government would remove a lifetime ban on welfare recipients who are caught cheating on their applications. Pupatello described the rule as counterproductive, in that many welfare officials were reluctant to bring forward charges out of concern for the extreme punitive consequences.[12] She also announced that her government would take greater steps to find parents who are delinquent with child support payments.[13]


In March 2004, Pupatello announced $2 million to assist low-income Ontarians with increased hydro bills.[14] In June, she announced $10 million to help Ontarians with physical disabilities modify their houses and cars.[15]


Pupatello introduced a 3% social assistance rate increase in 2004, the first such increase after twelve years of freezes. Mechanical difficulties with computers purchased by the Mike Harris government subsequently delayed its implementation, and the province implemented lump-sum payments instead.[16] Later in 2004, Pupatello announced that her government would eliminate a rule requiring welfare recipients to liquidate their education savings plans. Speaking to the media, Pupatello described the requirement as "a dumb rule that works at cross-purposes to what welfare is suppose to be doing for people and their families".[17] In 2005, she announced the creation of the JobsNow program to help welfare recipients enter the workforce.[18] Michael Deane Harris (born January 23, 1945, in Toronto, Ontario) was the twenty-second Premier of Ontario from June 26, 1995 to April 15, 2002. ...


In January 2005, Pupatello was appointed to chair an ad hoc cabinet committee on the modernization of government.[19]


Pupatello spearheaded passage of the Adoption Information Disclosure Act in 2005, allowing birth records to be released to adoptees. Ontario Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian was a critic of the bill, arguing that it was not sufficiently respectful of the promises of anonymity made to birth parents at the time of adoption.[20] Pupatello argued that the bill was necessary to provide adoptees with information about their personal history, and has noted that it provides safeguards for instances where safety issues are a concern.[21] The Adoption Information Disclosure Act, also known as Bill 183, is a bill presently before the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. ... Adoption is the legal act of permanently placing a child with a parent (or parents) other than the birth parents. ... Ann Cavoukian is the current Information and Privacy Commissioner for the Canadian province of Ontario. ...


Pupatello announced in January 2006 that her department would close Ontario's three remaining government-operated institutions for mentally disabled adults, and assist the occupants with moving into in more integrated community facilities. She noted that a "sea change in attitude" had occurred over institutionalization practices since the buildings were first established, and that greater integration was now the preferred approach. Previous ministers, including John Baird, had also called for the buildings to close. Critics argued that the plan could put the patients at risk.[22] John Russell Baird, PC, MP (born May 26, 1969) is a Canadian politician. ...


In March 2006, the McGuinty government was criticized for a backlog in approving provincial disability allowances. Pupatello described the backlog as "totally unacceptable", and announced that her ministry would work to correct it.[23] Later in the same month, she announced that her department would close a loophole allowing social assistance recipients to receive an additional $250 per week for "special diets". Groups such as the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty had previously encouraged recipients to apply for the benefit, and there had been a significant increase in the number of requests. Pupatello argued that the loophole was being exploited by activist groups, and that the resulting drain on the system needed to be corrected. Several anti-poverty groups criticized the decision.[24] The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) is a group of anti-poverty activists in Ontario, Canada, that uses direct action to fight for the rights of the poor and homeless. ...


Pupatello raised social assistance rates were raised again by 2% in 2006, allowed further money to be 'flowed through' from the federal government's National Child Benefit Supplement in each year since 2003.[25] She was unable to implement a planned removal of the federal tax credit clawback, and argued that the deficit inherited from the previous government made this change unviable before 2007.[26]


Minister of Education

Pupatello was promoted to Minister of Education on April 5, 2006, after Gerard Kennedy resigned to run for the federal Liberal leadership. The following month, she announced that her government would give $3 million to the Kids Help Phone service to set up an 24 hour anti-bullying hotline.[27] She also pledged more than $1 million to provide young students with swimming and water survival lessons, in the aftermath of a series of drowning deaths in the Guelph area the previous year.[28] The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities are the agencies of the Government of Ontario in the Canadian province of Ontario responsible for government policy, funding, curriculum planning and direction in all levels of public education, including elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities. ...

In late May 2006, Pupatello introduced a strategic high school transition plan intended to reduce Ontario's high-school dropout rate.[29] The following month, she introduced a $50 million plan for teacher training and reduced wait times for special needs programs.[30] She also worked toward solving the vexing issue of the teacher funding formula, a problem that the Liberals inherited from the previous government.[31]


Pupatello also announced a comprehensive plan for changes at TV Ontario, including a greater focus on educational programming and more money for equipment upgrades. The popular Studio 2 program was cancelled, and replaced by a nightly current affairs show called The Agenda. Some opposition politicians charged political interference in the latter decision, but this was denied by both Pupatello and Studio 2 host Steve Paikin.[32] TVOntario (TVO) is an educational public television station in the Canadian province of Ontario. ...

During the summer of 2006, Pupatello criticized a number of Ontario school boards for failing to balance their books. She appointed a financial adviser to the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, which was experiencing difficulties balancing its budget.[33] Pupatello also targeted administrative costs in the Toronto District School Board, arguing that the board had the means to balance its books without program cuts.[34] In late August, she appointed two provincial representatives to review the TDSB books.[35]


During a September 2006 by-election Parkdale—High Park, Pupatello engaged in a controversial negative campaign on behalf of Liberal candidate Sylvia Watson. She accused New Democratic Party candidate Rev. Cheri DiNovo of comparing Canada's media coverage of serial killer Karla Homolka to the persecution of Jesus Christ, and suggested that DiNovo was unfit to run for parliament.[36] Many argued that Pupatello took DiNovo's words completely out of context, and opposition politicians accused the Liberals of conducting a smear campaign.[37] The effort backfired, and DiNovo was elected by a significant margin. Pupatello has defended her role in the campaign, saying "If I was presented once again with apparently what is factual and has yet to be refuted and that is sermons that were posted on the world wide web ... I would have exactly the same opinion as I do today".[38] Parkdale—High Park in relation to the other Toronto ridings Parkdale—High Park is a federal and provincial electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1979, and in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario since 1999. ...

Minister of Economic Development and Trade

Pupatello was reassigned as Minister of Economic Development and Trade on September 18, 2006, following the resignation of Joe Cordiano. This was generally interpreted as a demotion, although at least one columnist has suggested that holding an economic portfolio could help Pupatello's long-term political ambitions.[39] The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade in the Canadian province of Ontario is responsible for programs to attract and retain business and economic development in the province. ...

Pupatello led provincial trade delegations to Alberta in late 2006 and early 2007, promoting Ontario's business sector to the western province's booming economy.[40][41] She also took part in a trade mission to India and Pakistan in January 2007,[42][43] and went on a four-day trade mission to Japan in April of the same year. Her department has also set up a growing number of marketing centres around the world.[44] Motto: Fortis et liber(Latin) Strong and free Capital Edmonton Largest city Calgary Official languages English (see below) Government - Lieutenant-Governor Norman Kwong - Premier Ed Stelmach (PC) Federal representation in Canadian Parliament - House seats 28 - Senate seats 6 Confederation September 1, 1905 (split from Northwest Territories) (8th [province]) Area Ranked...


Minister Responsible for Women's Issues

In late 2005, Pupatello introduced a program to assist provincial emergency workers in identifying cases of domestic abuse.[45] She has also introduced several initiatives to assist women from low income backgrounds in entering the job market.[46] She introduced "EqualityRules.ca" in November 2006, to encourage equal relationships between young boys and girls.[47] In the same month, she announced $2.1 million for interpreter services for victims of domestic violence.[48]

Pupatello supported Paul Martin's bid to succeed Jean Chrétien as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada.[49] She also supported Michael Ignatieff's bid for the party leadership in 2006.[50] Paul Edgar Philippe Martin (born August 28, 1938) was the 21st Prime Minister of Canada and a former leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. ...
