MISSISSAUGA—Bob Delaney, was nominated today to run for reelection as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for Mississauga—Streetsville.
"I am honoured to accept the nomination of my Party to renew our mandate with our neighbours in Lisgar, Meadowvale and Streetsville in the upcoming Ontario election,” said Delaney. “Over the past fifteen years, we have worked together to build and improve public transit; rebuild and secure Ontario's energy system; renew our schools and education system; build new capacity in our hospitals, and enhance our health care budget and services; and to look after the vulnerable and the developmentally challenged.
"We have more important work to continue. We need to continue to invest in our families, support our children, enable our students to get the postsecondary education they need in the 21st century, and assist seniors and growing families with drug and dental costs. I look forward to my conversations with our neighbours in the coming weeks,” Delaney concluded.
Bob Delaney was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 2003. Delaney currently serves as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Infrastructure. He has previously been Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Energy, Minister of Education, Minister of Revenue, Minister of Tourism, Minister of Research and Innovation, and Minister Responsible for Seniors.
Before his election, Delaney was a web developer and consultant. He taught internet marketing at Ryerson University’s Business Studies Faculty. He also taught planning, budgeting and business statistics, and co-authored a book on IT consulting. Delaney served on the board of the Peel Multicultural Council. He has also volunteered with the Inter-Cultural Neighbourhood Social Services in Mississauga. Delaney received a B.Sc. in physics from Concordia University in Montreal, and earned an MBA from Simon Fraser University.
Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to create opportunity and fairness during this period of rapid economic change. Ontario's economy is growing, but too many families still feel like they can't get ahead. Our plan for care and opportunity includes building a stronger, healthier Ontario through historic new investments in health care, including through free medications for everyone under 25 and a committed expansion to serve those over 65 through OHIP+; providing free tuition for over 225,000 students and on-the-job learning opportunities to help land a great job; and helping 100,000 kids access quality, licensed child care, including a commitment to free preschool child care.
The Conservatives have vowed to halt the $15 minimum wage. They have backed away from the fight against climate change, and have promised billions of dollars in cuts to critical public services. While the Ontario Liberal Party is focused on investing in the services and infrastructure people rely on, the Conservatives remain focused on gutting healthcare and education, denying working people a decent paycheque, and threatening much-needed public infrastructure projects.
