Voters in Mississauga-Streetsville have elected Liberal Rechie Valdez, a creative entrepreneur & leader with a drive to empower the community.
In her speech before her supporters, she said, “I believe constituents of Mississauga-Streetsville have made their choice to move forward with the Liberal Party because we are focused on ensuring we are taking care of our middle-class families, we’re focused on affordable housing and $10-a-day daycare… a lot of the choices they made were really to help us move forward through this pandemic.”
Navdeep Bains, the National Campaign Co-Chair for the Liberal Party of Canada, during her nomination said Valdez will focus on building new engagement with Canadians and continue to work hard to keep Canada moving forward.
