Dryden resident Ember McKillop will be representing Ontario’s Green Party in the provincial election.
“I’m thrilled to be running for the Green Party. We offer a better option for progressives from all parties who are tired of the status quo,” says McKillop.
“I’m committed to engaging voters on important issues to our communities in Kenora Rainy River. This is our home and we have to make sure that we protect and grow it in the best way possible. I am running to make sure that we put people first. That the precious resources in the Kenora Rainy River Riding are protected,” she added.
The Special Education Resource Teacher and volunteer has been living in the Kenora Rainy-River District for the past 15 years.
GPO leader Mike Schreiner says that he is thrilled to announce that McKillop will be joining the GPO’s team.
“Ember’s passion and experience in the local community will make her a strong MPP. She will introduce an honest debate about issues that matter: protecting food and water, repairing our broken Hydro system and improving health care.”
McKillop previously ran as a federal candidate in Kenora in 2015. Former federal cabinet minister Greg Rickford is the nominee for the Progressive Conservatives. Kenora’s Glen Archer is representing the NDP. Karen Kejick will be running for the Liberals.
The provincial election is set for June 7.
