Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Denzil Minnan-Wong in Don Valley East

Published on January 20, 2018

“I congratulate Denzil on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Don Valley East.

“Denzil makes an excellent addition to our already experienced and diverse Ontario PC team. A long-term city councillor in Toronto and North York, Denzil has taken up a number of different leadership positions. Denzil has served as Deputy Mayor, on the board of the TTC, Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, and the North York Community Council.

“A champion for lower taxes, responsible spending, and accountable government, Denzil fought tirelessly for Canada’s first municipal Auditor General in the City of Toronto. Denzil also advocated for the development of a downtown bike lane network and helped to rescue Toronto’s bike share program.

“After 15 years in power, life is harder with the Wynne Liberals. Ontario families are working harder, paying more, and getting less. It’s time for a change.

“In Don Valley East and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard to earn the trust of the people of Ontario. I look forward to working with Denzil as we continue to share our positive message of change.”
