TORONTO—Following a competitive nomination race with over 3600 local members, Nadia Guerrera, a Parkdale educator and community leader, was nominated as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for Parkdale–High Park yesterday evening.
“I’ve spent my life serving our community, working to ensure we have a bright future,” said Guerrera. “I am so excited for the opportunity to fight for fairness on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s team. Our community will benefit from increased investments in transit, from a $15-an-hour minimum wage and the coming free prescription program for children and youth. The plan the Premier has in place is so important to residents in our communities, and it is an honour to join the team.”
In addition to her role as a local teacher, Nadia Guerrera serves as her union representative on the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Union and on the Union’s political action community. Guerrera is the founder and executive director of Orwell Art, an international education initiative that teaches youth around the world about democracy, civic engagement and human rights through the arts. Her passion for education and human rights led Guerrera to write a curriculum about awareness of genocide, focusing on the Holomodor National Awareness Tour; this curriculum will be used in schools across the country. She also serves as a local coach.
Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a progressive 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.
