Message of support from Brad Duguid, former Liberal Member of Provincial Parliament and Senior Cabinet Minister 

Feb 08,2020

Brad DuguidI’m Brad Duguid, former Liberal Member of Provincial Parliament and Senior Cabinet Minister.

Working alongside Mitzie Hunter as a fellow Cabinet Minister has given me the trust and confidence to fully endorse her bid to lead the Ontario Liberal Party into the future. 

Mitzie has the needed combination of hard work, determination, energy, integrity, and boldness to lead our Party and stand up to the Ford government.

She has demonstrated all the personal characteristics of a successful leader. Her uniquely forward-thinking vision for our province is anchored in the authenticity and collaborative style needed to make that vision a reality.

Mitzie’s wide range of experience in business, the nonprofit sector, and government gives her a broad and deep knowledge of what strong leadership demands. She is a grassroots community-builder who is both compassionate and strong.

Achieving re-election as MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood in the environment of the last election illustrates the unwavering confidence and trust Mitzie has built with her constituents over the years she has served them.

I firmly believe that choosing a sitting Member of Provincial Parliament as Leader will provide an immediate, experienced, Liberal presence both inside and outside the legislature ⁠— which will serve us well leading into the 2022 election.

As we face the challenge of rebuilding and strengthening our Party, I am confident that MPP Mitzie Hunter is the best person to lead Liberals to victory and work to improve the life for all Ontarians.

Brad Duguid
