TORONTO — First Bob Rae -- now Kathleen Wynne.

They’re the only two premiers I’ve covered who’ve turned me down for a personal interview.

Rae led an embattled NDP government heading in to the 1995 election. I never did get the interview with him.

Wynne not only turned me down for my “tea with Christina,” series with the party leaders.

She wouldn’t even come in for an editorial board -- as the other two leaders did.

So much for her “consulting.” Clearly she doesn’t want to talk with people who might want to hold her to account.

She was only too happy to sit down for tea during the Liberal leadership campaign, when she needed some profile.

It leaves me no choice. In the absence of a one-on-one interview, I’ll have to imagine how it might have gone.
