Liberals in Kingston and the Islands have nominated Ted Hsu, a physicist and their former Member of Parliament, as their Ontario Liberal Party (OLP) candidate for the next provincial election.
“Having served four years as the Member of Parliament for Kingston and the Islands, Ted has proven himself to be a tremendous representative for his community,” said OLP Leader, Steven Del Duca. “I’m very happy to have him on our team and I know Ted will make an excellent advocate as we work to get ready for the next provincial election.”
Following his term as Member of Parliament for Kingston and the Islands, Hsu served as co-chair of Kingston Mayor’s Task Force on Housing. Hsu currently serves as a board member for the Fields Institute for Research in the Mathematical Sciences, Chinese Canadian Association of Kingston and District, and SWITCH Sustainable Energy Association.
“I look forward to joining our new Liberal leader, Steven Del Duca, as we rebuild our party and
present a fresh team to the voters of Ontario,” said Hsu. “I believe that the next election will be about big issues, because the pandemic, with its human costs and economic damage, has laid bare existing inequities and inadequacies and brought us to a critical juncture. Liberals need to be ready to share a new direction for Ontario as we recover from our current disruption.”
