MISSISSAUGA—Imran Mian, a local business executive, won the Ontario Liberal Party nomination in Mississauga–Erin Mills today. The nomination race had over 6500 Party members.
“Under Premier Kathleen Wynne’s bold leadership, we have seen a great deal of progress,” said Mian. “I am honoured to be joining a team that has fought for fairness and opportunity, including investing in Mississauga transit, providing free tuition for nearly a quarter of a million students and free prescription medication for all children and youth under 25. My singular focus will continue to be on improving the lives of families.”
Imran Mian is currently Vice-President, Sales of mobileLive Inc, an award-winning GTA technology company. He has held a variety of other managerial roles over a twenty-year career in business and technology, including with companies such as Bell Canada, the Info-Tech Research Group and Samsung Canada. He earned his Bachelor of Business Administration at York University. A dedicated community volunteer, he is a member of the campaign committee for the United Way of Peel Region and served as the founding co-chair of the United Way of Peel Region’s South Asian Advisory Council.
Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan that is creating opportunity and fairness during this period of rapid economic change and uncertainty. Ontario's economy is growing, but too many families are not experiencing the benefits of that growth and feel they can't get ahead. That’s why the Ontario Liberal plan has stepped up to make tuition free for 225,000 students, provide free prescription drug coverage for children and youth, build 100,000 affordable child-care spaces, and raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. The Conservatives have vowed to undo the minimum wage increase because no matter who their leader is, it is the same old Conservative Party. While a Liberal government is focused on investing in care and providing better supports for caregivers, the Conservatives remain focused on cutting health care and education and jeopardizing the services Ontarians rely on by firing 40,000 workers.
