Monday, April 17, 2017

Cambridge — The Ontario Liberal Party is pleased to announce Kathryn McGarry will be seeking re-election as the Ontario Liberal candidate for the 42nd Ontario general election.

McGarry was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 2014 as MPP for Cambridge and currently serves as Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, and previously served as the Parliamentary Assistant for Transportation.

“The past few years have been a great privilege and have allowed me to serve my community and help to push the issues that matter most to individuals here in Cambridge,” said McGarry. “Ontario, and Waterloo Region, has seen real growth since 2014 and I want to continue to help Cambridge continue to build on our economic strengths to ensure families have access to quality healthcare, a good education, and well-paying jobs.”

McGarry was joined by Burlington MPP Eleanor McMahon, Kitchener Centre MPP Daiene Vernile, and members of the Cambridge community at this evening’s nomination meeting.

“Kathryn’s advocacy for the Cambridge Hospital expansion, increased mental health supports including for students and first responders, investing in Toyota and Frito-Lay to create jobs, and prioritizing increased GO services to Cambridge are delivering exactly the right results for people in our community,” said Allan Krause, Cambridge Riding President. “I know she will continue to represent our community and advocate for our concerns at Queen’s Park once she is re-elected.”

Prior to entering provincial politics, McGarry was a critical care nurse and care coordinator at the local Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), assisting clients in the community to better address their health care needs.
