Barbara Doyle will represent the NDP in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock in the upcoming provincial election.
“I am committed to standing up for local families to ensure that they have the services they need,” Doyle says. “I have fought to defend local public health care and I will keep fighting to expand it so people and families in our communities get the care they need where and when they need it. I am determined to make life more affordable for families who have been hit hard during this pandemic with skyrocketing prices for housing, child care and some of the very basics of life. Together with Andrea Horwath and the NDP, we can have a brighter future with more access to health care, education, affordable housing, good jobs, and real action on climate change.”
Doyle is the co-founder of the Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition. She was born and raised in Linsday and works with volunteer groups to end domestic violence and other women-related issues.
The NDP’s Deputy Leader John Vanthof says she is “exactly” what Ontarians need after “years of cuts” under Premier Ford Ford and the previous Liberal government.
Doyle is the first candidate to be announced for the upcoming election. Conservative Laurie Scott is the incumbent MPP for the riding. The election is scheduled for June 2nd unless the Ford government calls for it earlier.
