A News Release from the St. Catharines Provincial Liberal Association
Posted May 11th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
St. Catharines, Ontario – Current MPP Jim Bradley has been nominated by the St. Catharines Provincial Liberal Association to run for the Liberal Party in the June 7 provincial election.
Jim, who was first elected to represent St. Catharines in the Ontario Legislature in 1977, has had the honour of holding several cabinet positions throughout his political career.
During his previous stint as Minister of the Environment, he was an innovative leader in cleaning up pollution, and bringing the Blue Box recycling to millions of homes. As Minister of Transportation, Jim brought in legislation to toughen penalties against drunk driving, and expanded public transit across Ontario.
Before his election to the legislature, Jim served as a member of the St. Catharines City Council.
Jim has been instrumental in securing infrastructure projects that are creating thousands of local jobs and transforming our local health, education and transportation systems, including the state-of-the-art hospital and Walker Family Cancer Centre, bringing GO trains and buses to Niagara, and the Downtown Performing Arts Centre.
“As your MPP, I have worked hard to deliver reliable local health and seniors care, a quality education system and to ensure that we continue to receive investments that will help strengthen our community. I would be honoured and privileged to continue serving as your MPP for St. Catharines,” Bradley said.
Our plan includes building a stronger, healthier Ontario through historic new investments in health care, including publicly funded medications for everyone under 25 and a committed expansion to serve those over 65 through OHIP+; providing access to postsecondary for over 235,000 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 publicly funded preschool child care.
The Doug Ford Conservatives have threatened 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 will gut health care and education, denying working people a decent paycheque, and threatening much-needed public infrastructure projects.
