Premier Kathleen Wynne, Coun. Norm Kelly to meet today

Toronto Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly will meet with Premier Kathleen Wynne this morning.

A press release says the pair are getting together to "discuss a number of important issues regarding the City of Toronto."

Kelly has assumed many of the powers stripped from Mayor Rob Ford by a council vote in November. Since then, Wynne has chosen to meet with Kelly instead of Ford to discuss issues affecting the city, saying the deputy mayor is now the de facto head of council.

Wynne plans to hold a news conference following the meeting, which Kelly's office has described as "routine."
