It is my pleasure to express my endorsement of Ted Hsu as the Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party. As an engaged member of my community and a passionate advocate for health equity, mental health and
positive change, I believe that Ted is the best choice to represent our interests and work towards a brighter future.

I have had the opportunity to observe Ted’s commitment and dedication to public service over the past few years. His diverse background of experiences in business, science, and sustainable energy helps him to understand the challenges facing the people of Ontario. Ted has also demonstrated his exceptional leadership skills, unwavering integrity, and genuine concern for the welfare of my community in his role as Member of Parliament and more recently, as Member of Provincial Parliament for Kingston and the Islands.

What sets Ted apart is his personable nature and ability to listen attentively to the concerns and needs of the people he aims to serve. Through countless interactions with constituents, community meetings, and public forums, he has shown a remarkable ability to empathize with the diverse perspectives and experiences that make my community thrive. In my role as Board Director of the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario, I shared with Ted the challenges that nurses face and the concerns we have about the healthcare system in general. He represented us well at Queen’s Park.

Additionally, Ted’s vision for Ontario aligns closely with the values and aspirations that I hold dear. His stance on key issues, such as healthcare, mental health, affordable housing, and environmental sustainability reflects a thoughtful and inclusive approach that takes into account the interests of all members of our society. He has very effective communication skills, an analytical mind, and a remarkable talent for bridging divides and finding common ground.

Given Ted's proven track record, unwavering dedication, and strong moral compass, I am confident that he will represent Ontarians with the utmost integrity and work tirelessly to bring about positive change. I urge you to join me in supporting Ted as the Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party. Now, more than ever, we need leaders who will champion the issues that matter most to us and fight for a better, more prosperous, and safe future. Ted possesses the qualities, experience, and dedication needed to be a remarkable Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party.
