Marjorie Knight chosen to be the Ontario NDP candidate in Cambridge

CAMBRIDGE — New Democrats in Cambridge have selected Marjorie Knight to be their NDP candidate in the 2022 provincial election. Knight, a long-time Cambridge resident, anti-poverty advocate and community outreach worker, ran a strong and competitive campaign as the Ontario NDP candidate in Cambridge in the 2018 election, finishing just four per cent shy of winning.


NDP Leader Andrea Horwath
“Marjorie is an outstanding candidate, and I’m thrilled to have her running on the NDP ticket in Cambridge in 2022. Better health care, better education and homes people can afford are what Cambridge families deserve, and that’s exactly what I’ll be working to deliver with Marjorie and the whole NDP team when we form government in less than two years.”

“After 15 years under the Liberals and a couple years under the Conservatives, hallway medicine is getting worse, long-term care homes are in crisis, and class sizes are growing. It’s long past time that Cambridge families saw a government that was working to make life better for them, which is why I’m joining Andrea Horwath’s New Democrat team again for 2022. With plans to invest in health care, overhaul long-term care and home care, support public education, and make sure everyone has an affordable home to rent or to own, an NDP government not only prioritizes better quality of life for families in Cambridge — Andrea also has a plan to deliver.”
