AJAX—Joe Dickson was nominated this evening to run for re-election in Ajax, surrounded by local supporters at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 322.
"It’s a privilege to represent our community at Queen’s Park and to work hard on your behalf," said Dickson. "Working with Premier Kathleen Wynne and the entire team, we’ve delivered for Ajax with important investments, including dramatic expansion of GO transit services, with the new train station and pedestrian bridge, as well as $31 million in funding for Grandview Children’s Centre and the expansion of St James Catholic School. I’m also glad to see the passage of the Hindu Heritage Month Bill. I’m excited for another term to serve this community and I look forward to the campaign ahead," Dickson concluded.
Joe Dickson was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in 2007, and has since served as a Parliamentary Assistant to various ministers, including his current dual roles as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Northern Development and Mines, as well as to the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry.
Before his election as an MPP, Dickson served as deputy mayor and regional councillor for the Town of Ajax, as a town councillor and as a school trustee on the Ajax Catholic District School Board.
A small-business owner, Dickson owned and operated Dickson Printing for nearly fifty years, and served as Canadian chair of the Stationers Marketing of Canada, a group of forty-seven retailers in ten provinces. An active volunteer in the community, Dickson was awarded The Queen Elizabeth 50th Anniversary Medal, Canada’s 125th Anniversary Award and the Ajax Citizen of the Year.
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.
