Broten attended McMaster University from 1986 to 1990, and has both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree from the institution. She also received an LL.B. from the University of Western Ontario in 1993. She was a law clerk to Madam Justice Claire L'Heureux-Dubé at the Supreme Court of Canada from 1993 to 1994, and later had a practice in civil and commercial litigation. She has also served as Chair of the Board of Directors for the Gatehouse, a community centre for survivors of child abuse. Laurel, who is fluently bilingual, lives in Etobicoke with her husband and twin sons. Provincial politics Broten first ran for the Ontario legislature in the provincial election of 1999, but was defeated by Progressive Conservative Morley Kells in Etobicoke-Lakeshore by close to 5,000 votes. She ran again in the 2003 election, and defeated Kells by almost the same margin amid a provincial shift to the Liberals. On October 23, 2003, she was named as the Parliamentary Assistant to Premier Dalton McGuinty. There she conducted province-wide consultations to develop meaningful reforms to address domestic violence in Ontario. This led to the Government’s Domestic Violence Action Plan which included a groundbreaking public education campaign. She also chaired the Premier’s Shared Air Summit, which drew scientists and policy makers from across North America to tackle the linked issues of smog and transboundary air pollution. Minister of the Environment Laurel was then promoted to cabinet as Minister of the Environment on June 29, 2005. As Minister of the Environment, she developed policies under one of Canada’s most comprehensive Climate Change Plans in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. She also introduced the Clean Water Act designed to better safeguard Ontario’s drinking water. 39th Parliament Laurel was re-elected in 2007 and was appointed Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care. While there Laurel authored a report detailing a Five Point Action Plan to create more opportunities and reduce barriers for internationally trained doctors in Ontario. Her report formed the basis for new legislation in 2008. In 2008 she introduced legislation that requires a duty to report images of child abuse. Then in 2009 she unanimously passed a resolution calling for a review of reporting standards for listed companies. In 2009, Laurel was appointed Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Energy and Infrastructure. On October 7, 2009, Laurel Broten was named Minister of Children and Youth Services. Garage controversy In 2007, Broten and her husband were criticized after they applied for a permit to build a large two-storey garage behind their home. Dubbed the "garage mahal" by neighbours, the structure was meant to hold the couple's four vehicles. The plan was notable due at the time to Broten's position as the Minister of the Environment. Following a public outcry and stories in the media plans to build the garage were cancelled.[2] Electoral record Ontario general election, 2007 Party Candidate Votes % ±%      Liberal Laurel Broten 20,246 45.9      Progressive Conservative Tom Barlow 13,524 30.6      New Democrat Andrea Németh 5,991 13.6      Green Jerry Schulman 3,464 7.9      Family Coalition Bob Williams 464 1.1      Independent Janice Murray 456 1.0 Ontario general election, 2003 Party Candidate Votes % ±%      Liberal Laurel Broten 19,680 44.16 +8.31      Progressive Conservative Morley Kells 14,524 32.59 -14.39      New Democrat Irene Jones 8,952 20.09 +5.37      Green Junyee Wang 708 1.59      Family Coalition Ted Kupiec 480 1.08 +0.12      Independent Janice Murray 225 0.50 -0.18 Ontario general election, 1999 Party Candidate Votes % ±%      Progressive Conservative Morley Kells 20,602 46.98 +1.75      Liberal Laurel Broten 15,723 35.85 +6.27      New Democrat Vicki Obedkoff 6,457 14.72 -10.45      Family Coalition Kevin McGourty 423 0.96      Natural Law Don Jackson 349 0.80 +0.16      Independent Janice Murray 299 0.68 References ^ Premier Announces Changes To Ontario Cabinet ^ Rob Ferguson.
