I’m thrilled that the Green Party earned 5% of the vote across the province, and proud of our strong showings in Guelph, Dufferin–Caledon, and Parry Sound–Muskoka. In Guelph we tripled our results from 2011, and province-wide we doubled our fundraising. In riding after riding, second-time Green candidates saw big gains in their vote totals.
I’m grateful to all the hardworking candidates and their teams. I’m humbled by the amazing support I’ve had in Guelph, and want to thank everyone who contributed to my campaign there.
The Green Party stood up and faced issues that no one else wanted to talk about. We called on the government to fix the school system and stop allowing discrimination and waste. We pushed for home retrofits instead of re-tooled nuclear power. We demanded that the province take action now to protect prime farmland and drinking water at source.
These are not fringe issues or unbaked ideas. They are issues that affect most Ontarians every day. They are questions on which the majority of Ontarians agree with our positions and proposals.
