Remy Boulbol nominated as Ontario Liberal candidate for Windsor–Tecumseh

April 13, 2018

WINDSOR—Remy Boulbol, a dedicated community leader, was nominated this evening as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for Windsor–Tecumseh. 

“I've spent my career working for and with families and individuals, ensuring that they have access to the services and tools they need to thrive. I believe deeply that our region needs and deserves strong and effective representation in order to bring our needs forward in a way that meets them,” said Boulbol. “I’m honoured to be running on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s team, to invest in the care and supports Windsor and Tecumseh residents need, including free tuition for nearly a quarter of a million students, a $15-an-hour minimum wage and free prescriptions for children and youth and soon for seniors.” 

Remy Boulbol has nearly twenty years of experience working with local social justice organizations focusing on health, education, poverty, youth, and women’s issues. She has worked extensively in both Canada and the US with a focus on strategic planning and resource development. Currently, she is the Executive Director of Development and Programming at the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, which provides fiduciary and programmatic support to one of the most marginalized and under-served school districts in Michigan. Previously, she served as Director of Development and Community Engagement at the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women in Windsor and as the Executive Director of the Rose City Islamic Centre in east Windsor. Boulbol currently serves on the board of directors for Legal Aid Ontario, Windsor Women Working with Immigrant Women, and Assisted Living Southwest Ontario. 

For her advocacy work with women and children, Boulbol was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, and has been an active volunteer and community advocate through her work with Neighbourhood Watch, Windsor Rotary 1918, Canterbury College Elder College and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s Ontario Citizen’s Council. Remy Boulbol and her husband, Talal, live in Windsor where they raise their three girls, Aalya, Nahila and Samira.

Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to create opportunity and fairness during this period of rapid economic change. Ontario's economy is growing, but too many families still feel like they can't get ahead. Our plan includes building a stronger, healthier Ontario through historic new investments in health care, including through free medications for everyone under 25 and a committed expansion to serve those over 65 through OHIP+; providing free tuition for over 225,000 students and on-the-job learning opportunities to help land a great job; and helping 100,000 kids access quality, licensed child care, including a commitment to free preschool.

The Conservatives have vowed to halt the $15 minimum wage. They have backed away from the fight against climate change, and have promised billions of dollars in cuts to critical public services. While the Ontario Liberal Party is focused on investing in the services and infrastructure people rely on, the Conservatives remain focused on gutting healthcare and education, denying working people a decent paycheque, and threatening much-needed public infrastructure projects.
