“I congratulate Goldie Ghamari on being nominated by the Ontario PC members of Carleton as our new candidate for the 2018 General Election, and a member of our modern, inclusive, and pragmatic team.
“In many ways, Goldie’s story is Ontario’s story. She’s the daughter of immigrants, who through hard-work and determination gave their daughter a fulfilling life. Goldie is a successful international trade lawyer with her own practice and an active community volunteer. I am sure that Goldie will be a strong voice for the people of Carleton.
“After 13 years in power, life is harder under the Liberals. Skyrocketing hydro rates have driven Ontarians into energy poverty and businesses out of our province. We continue to see cut after cut to our frontline health care services, and Wynne Liberal scandal after scandal means that Ontario lags far behind other provinces.
“Enough is enough. Clearly, it’s time for a change in Ontario. It’s time for a government that puts the people of Ontario first, not political self-interests.
“I would also like to thank Brandon Purcell for running a strong campaign and for his contributions to the Ontario PC cause.”
Statement from Goldie Ghamari on being nominated as the Ontario PC Candidate for Carleton:
“I am very excited to be joining Patrick Brown’s Ontario PC team as the candidate for Carleton in the upcoming 2018 election.
“In my conversation with families across the Carleton riding, I heard one common theme: life is harder under the Wynne Liberals. People are tired. They’re tired of paying some of the highest electricity prices in North America. They’re tired of scandal after scandal, and they’re tired of cuts to health care. They’re tired of a government that is only in it for themselves, and is out of touch with the challenges everyday families face. Patrick Brown’s Ontario PC Party is the change Ontario needs.
“My parents always taught me that you can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it. This is what has guided me throughout my life. I first joined the Ontario PC Party because I wanted to make a difference, in my community and in the province I am proud to call home. It has been a lot of hard-work to get to this point, but it’s not over yet. I can’t wait to get started as the candidate, knocking on doors, meeting with voters, and spreading our positive message of change with the people of Carleton.”
