Premier Kathleen Wynne to host Reddit AMA

Premier Kathleen Wynne will be taking questions Tuesday, but not from the usual throng of provincial affairs reporters.

Wynne is hosting an AMA, short for “Ask Me Anything,” session on the website Reddit.

Starting at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 11, anyone with a Reddit account is free to ask the Premier questions. Though she can pick and choose which ones she actually answers.

The session runs for one hour.

Wynne is the first Canadian premier to host an AMA, but she is not the first politician to open herself up to questions from the masses. Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi hosted an AMA during his recent re-election campaign and U.S. President Barack Obama has been in on the internet action.

Closer to home, Blue Jay’s slugger Jose Bautista fielded questions from fans who were eager to learn “Who is the funniest in the clubhouse?” and “What is Colby Rasmus like to hang out with?”

Wynne’s office said the premier is hosting the session to mark her first year in office.
