Michael Coteau, the third-term MPP, and Ontario Liberal leadership candidate visited North Bay Monday to meet with local Liberals.
In a news release, Coteau said “We know that Conservatives may claim to be ‘for the people’ but their cuts hurt children and families. I've been on the campaign trail with federal Liberal candidates since the writ dropped, and also working hard to build support in the upcoming Ontario Liberal leadership race, by reaching out to people from all walks of life who know we can do better than the failed approach of Doug Ford.
"I am running to ensure Ontario is the best place in the world to raise a family, where children are the healthiest, safest, best educated, and where we ensure everyone--regardless of region or life circumstances--has a fair shot at success," said Coteau.
Coteau immigrated to Canada as a child and grew up in Flemingdon Park, a working-class neighbourhood in North York.
Coteau was elected three times as Member of Provincial Parliament for Don Valley East.
