Prime Minster of Ontario

Colin spotted this plaque a while ago. We thought someone had made a typo. Turns out it’s acceptable to call the leader of the province the Prime Minister.

From Wikipedia: “The title of Prime Minister of Ontario, while permissible in English and correct in French (le Premier ministre), is generally avoided in favour of “Premier” to avoid confusion with the Prime Minister of Canada.”
