Official 2020 Ontario Liberal Leadership Candidates Announced
ONTARIO – The Ontario Liberal Party is pleased to announce the official list of candidates running in the 2020 Leadership Election.We have six candidates who have met the cut-off time of 5 p.m. on November 25, 2019. The candidates are (in alphabetical order):

  • Michael Coteau
  • Steven Del Duca
  • Kate Graham
  • Brenda Hollingsworth
  • Mitzie Hunter
  • Alvin Tedjo

Brenda Hollingsworth recently submitted a complete nomination package and we are now commencing the Party’s official green-lighting process with her. The other candidates have been previously greenlit and are fully registered.

“Ontarians deserve a strong voice at Queen’s Park, and it is clear that Ontario Liberals are ready to carry that torch,” said Ontario Liberal Party President Brian Johns. “These candidates have dedicated themselves to delivering strong community leadership and have shown a deep commitment to the people of this province.”

“Doug Ford’s priorities are out of touch with the priorities of Ontario families,” said Interim Ontario Liberal Party Leader John Fraser. “Our province deserves strong, responsible leadership inside and outside the legislature. We are excited about having this opportunity to continue rebuilding our party through a healthy debate about the issues that matter most to our members, and to all Ontarians.”

In advance of the Leadership vote on March 7, 2020, the registered candidates will meet on seven occasions to debate their visions for the province of Ontario, beginning with a Candidate Showcase event on November 28, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario.
