STATEMENT BY ONTARIO NDP LEADER ANDREA HORWATH ON BY-ELECTION IN WHITBY-OSHAWA

This by-election is an opportunity for this community to elect an MPP who shares their priorities. Someone who will fight for the kinds of jobs that can support a family -- jobs that give people hope and security -- and someone that will work hard to stop the cuts in Health Care and Education.

It is an opportunity to elect a local MPP who will join the fight against the Premier’s short-sighted and costly selloff of Hydro One, and who will work tirelessly towards creating an Ontario that is on your side and delivers opportunities for everyone.

This by-election won’t change the government, but it is an opportunity to send a message that the Liberal Government can’t ignore.  Voting for Patrick Brown and the Progressive Conservatives is a vote for more of the same. Ontario’s New Democrats are looking forward to giving Whitby-Oshawa the opportunity to do something different this time. 

I know that Niki Lundquist is the kind of strong woman Whitby-Oshawa needs to deliver the kind of change the community deserves.
