This May, the Ontario Progressive Conservative (PC) Party will elect a new leader. As of this week, there are four candidates vying for the top job: Christine Elliott, MPP for Whitby-Oshawa; Patrick Brown, federal MP for Barrie; Lisa MacLeod, MPP for Nepean- Carleton; and, Monte McNaughton, MPP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex. This week we are profiling MPP Lisa MacLeod.
Lisa MacLeod was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in 2006. She was the first female MPP to represent Nepean-Carlteon and the youngest woman ever elected as an Ontario Progressive Conservative MPP. Since her election, Ms. MacLeod has held a number of critic portfolios including Children and Youth Services, Government and Consumer Services, Consumer Services, Government Services, Revenue and Government Accountability, Education, Francophone Affairs, Energy, and President of the Treasury Board.
Before being elected, Ms. MacLeod worked in the management program for Sobeys Inc.. She also worked as a national policy process coordinator for the PC Party of Canada, and as a political aide to MP Pierre Poillevre, Councillor (and former MPP) Jan Harder, and MP John Baird.
OREA wishes Ms. MacLeod the best of luck in her leadership campaign. To learn more please visit: www.lisa4leader.ca.
