Over 800 grits come together to rebuild
TORONTO — More than 800 eager Liberal supporters from over 100 ridings across the province met in Toronto today to begin the next stages of rebuilding the Ontario Liberal Party.
Interim Party Leader John Fraser spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the Chestnut Conference Centre this morning, intent on setting a strong foundation for the party’s future.
“We will stop at nothing. We will overcome every obstacle. And we will use every resource at our disposal – no matter how small it may seem – because Ontario Liberals invite everyone in,” said Fraser. “We are the party of and for all Ontarians of all backgrounds and beliefs. We bring people together – we don’t divide them. And we are the builders who will put Ontario back on track when the Conservatives tear it all down.”
Attendees at today’s event were grassroots volunteers and supporters who have played a significant role building up communities across the province.
The gathering was the party’s first event since the 2018 provincial election and gave supporters the opportunity to come together to ask the hard questions and begin charting the path forward.
“Coming together is a crucial part of building our future. Ontarians sent us a clear and unmistakable message – it’s only right that we listen to that message,” continued Fraser. “Through grit, determination and hard work, we will be back to build Ontario up because ultimately that is our goal: to build an alternative to the cuts and chaos that we know are coming. The challenge before us is great, but so is the opportunity.”
