Quotes

“I’m honoured to once again run to represent the people of St. Catharines, the place I was born and raised in, and the community I love.”

“The last couple of years have been tough, but as Ontario recovers, we have a chance to make life better for families and tackle the big issues like affordability, making sure seniors can age with dignity, and giving our children the best education possible. With Andrea and the New Democrat team, we will build a government that’s in it for everyday people, and invest in the important things families in St. Catharines rely on, like long-term care, affordable child care and smaller class sizes in our public schools.” – Jennie Stevens, NDP candidate for St. Catharines

Ontario NDP Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath

“Jennie is a strong voice for the people of St. Catharines, and a compassionate fighter for the things that matter most to them. She pushes back against Doug Ford’s agenda of big cuts and bad decisions and always puts working families first. Jennie is an important member of our New Democrat team, and, together, just imagine what we can do for the people of St. Catharines with an NDP government. We can finally fix long-term care, invest in education and health care, and make it possible for the next generation to afford a home.” – Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath
