SUDBURY – Glenn Thibeault was nominated this afternoon to run for re-election as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate in Sudbury, surrounded by local supporters at the Copper Cliff Curling Club.
“I am pleased for the opportunity to continue delivering for Sudbury,” said Thibeault. “It is an incredible privilege to serve the people of Sudbury in the Ontario Legislature on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s team. We are continuing to work on the issues that matter most to the residents of Sudbury such as creating fairer workplaces, free medicine for children and young people, and making tuition free for nearly 4,000 students in Sudbury and more than 210,000 students across Ontario.”
Glenn Thibeault was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 2015 as the MPP for Sudbury.
He was appointed Ontario’s Minister of Energy in June 2016. As Minister of Energy, Glenn is focused on ensuring all Ontarians have access to an affordable supply of clean, reliable energy. Prior to entering provincial politics, Thibeault was the Member of Parliament for Sudbury and the Executive Director of the Sudbury United Way.
As a director with the United Way, he led many successful campaigns in support of community development. He has also been a volunteer with many not for profits, as well as with minor hockey and football leagues as a coach and official.
Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to deliver opportunity and fairness for everyone. While Ontario has a balanced budget and growing economy, not everyone is feeling that growth yet. That’s why we are working to deliver a fairer, better Ontario through free tuition for 210,000 students, free prescription drug coverage for children and youth, 100,000 affordable child-care spaces, and a $15-an-hour minimum wage. All of these policies are at risk if the Conservatives were to win the election.
