Exeter Woman Among Candidates To Lead Ontario Liberals

Exeter | by Fadi Didi  

Kate Graham says "one size fits all" policy should not be the way Ontario operates.

A candidate for the Ontario Liberal leadership has roots in Huron County.

Kate Graham is one of five confirmed candidates running to replace Kathleen Wynne as the leader of the province's Grits.

Graham was born in Exeter, and says her upbringing in the South Huron town helped to inform her opinions on public policy for the province.

She tells Country 104.9 News the priorities for a town like Exeter will be different than larger urban centres, and public policy should not be crafted in a "one size fits all" fashion.

Graham currently resides in London, where she teaches, studies, and writes about politics at Western University, King’s University College, and Huron University College.

Her three priorities for the province include tackling climate change, affordability of life, and creating jobs and opportunities for Ontarians.

Also running for the Ontario Liberal leadership are Alvin Tedjo, and former cabinet ministers Mitzie Hunter, Stephen Del Duca, and Michael Coteau.

Ottawa lawyer Brenda Hollingsworth is awaiting a green-light from the party for leadership contention.

The leader will be decided during a one-day leadership convention March 7th, 2020.
