Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Gila Martow as the Ontario PC candidate for Thornhill:
“I congratulate Gila Martow on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Thornhill.
“Gila is an incredibly active and valued member of our Ontario PC team. Never one to be silent on issues affecting her constituents, Gila is a very passionate voice in the Legislature.
“She currently serves as our caucus’ critic for GTA Issues, Francophone Affairs, Culture, and the Anti-Racism Secretariat, and has been working tirelessly to build a more inclusive province. As a proud member of Ontario’s Jewish community, Gila led the charge at Queen’s Park against the BDS movement, successfully passing a motion condemning the practice. She has also fought to improve the accessibility of parking spaces for Ontarians living with disabilities.
“After 13 years in power, life is harder under the Liberals. Ontarians are faced with skyrocketing hydro rates, cut after cut to their health care services, and Liberal scandal, waste and mismanagement is making life increasingly unaffordable. It’s time for change in Ontario.
“I am excited to have Gila back on our team, and I look forward to working closely with her as we continue to grow the Ontario PC Party in Toronto and the GTA by presenting a party that is modern, pragmatic, and ready to govern.”
