OAKVILLE—Alvin Tedjo, an advocate for parents and families, was nominated as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for the new riding of Oakville North–Burlington.
“I’m running to fight for fairness for our families. We need to ensure high-quality child care, affordable education and expand health-care coverage,” said Tedjo. “I’m honoured to be on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s team to work towards a province that has opportunity and fairness for everyone.”
Tedjo is the Director of Government Relations at Sheridan College in Oakville. He is also the founder of Canadians for Paternity Leave and Vice-President of the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care. Previously, he served as a senior policy advisor to the Minister of Training Colleges and Universities. Tedjo was recognized as a Top 40 Under 40 and Young Citizen of the Year. He and his partner, Rebecca, an ER nurse, have three young children.
Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to deliver opportunity and fairness for everyone. While Ontario has a balanced budget and growing economy, not everyone is feeling that growth yet. That’s why we are working to deliver a fairer, better Ontario through free tuition for 210,000 students, free prescription drug coverage for children and youth, 100,000 affordable child-care spaces, and a $15-an-hour minimum wage.
