MISSISSAUGA—Business owner Bobbie Daid was named today as the Ontario Liberal candidate for Mississauga Centre.
“I’m honoured to be joining Premier Kathleen Wynne’s team to ensure we continue to invest in the transit, health care and community supports Mississauga needs,” said Daid. “This government has been a steadfast partner for Mississauga, working to invest in our growing, diverse city. I am excited to campaign on bold, progressive policies like free tuition, free prescription medication for children and youth and soon for seniors, free preschool, and a $15-an-hour minimum wage.”
Bobbie Daid is a business owner and entrepreneur with a Master’s of Business Administration from the Richard Ivey School of Business. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto Mississauga. Daid volunteers her time with seniors and helps support their various needs and she works with local women community groups and organizations to empower women and mentor both young women and girls. Through her volunteer work with the most vulnerable, she understands the importance of preserving dignity and encouraging independence. Bobbie is a strong leader for our next generation, and she has lectured and taught at Nipissing University and Mississauga's Sheridan College.
The Ontario Liberal Party constitution empowers the Leader to appoint up to five candidates at her sole discretion.
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 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.
