Posted on 16 November 2017 by admin

SCARBOROUGH—Today, Toronto City Councillor Chin Lee was nominated as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for Scarborough North in the June 2018 provincial election.

“I am excited to be joining Premier Wynne’s team and am ready to continue to serve my constituents at Queen’s Park,” said Lee, who was first elected to Toronto City Council in 2006.

“This government has invested in Scarborough, with the Malvern Family Resource Centre, TaiBu, Hong Fook Mental Health and many other NGOs. Recently this government announced consolidation of Scarborough hospitals and funding for a Health Innovation Hub on Bridletowne Circle. These investments for our future need to continue, and I’m ready to do my part to ensure that record continues with a re-elected Ontario Liberal government,” Lee added.

“Chin Lee will be a tremendous MPP for Scarborough North. He has been a strong voice on Toronto City Council for many years and a very accomplished community leader. We are privileged to have him as part of our Scarborough Liberal team,” said the Honourable Brad Duguid, MPP for Scarborough Centre.

Shaun Chen, the local MP, also endorsed Chin Lee, saying he “has a proven track record of service to our community. An experienced, responsive and principled representative, Chin will fight for us at Queen’s Park. He has my full confidence and support.”

Chin Lee currently serves on the Toronto Police Services Board and is vice-chair of Scarborough Community Council. He has served on several other boards and committees at City Hall. Before entering politics, he was a consultant and manager in information technology with over thirty years of business experience. Lee is an advocate for building strong communities. He served as the President of the Goldhawk Community Association and co-founded the Scarborough Homeowner Alliance for Fair Taxation, helping to reduce property taxes for over 90% of North Scarborough homeowners. Lee and his family live in the Agincourt Community. He is a graduate of York University and Ryerson University.

Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to deliver opportunity and fairness for everyone. While Ontario has a balanced budget and growing economy, not everyone is feeling that growth yet. That’s why we are working to deliver a fairer, better Ontario through free tuition for 210,000 students, free prescription drug coverage for children and youth, 100,000 affordable child-care spaces, and a $15-an-hour minimum wage. This progressive plan is at risk if Conservatives like Patrick Brown and Raymond Cho were to win the election.
