Former MPP for Kingston and the Islands (2014-18)
Integrity and a strong work ethic are my impressions of Steven from my time as the MPP for Kingston and the Islands. His word is his bond. When the Wolfe Island Ferry was stuck in federal inspections-Steven came to a town hall with me in his role as Transportation Minister. I asked for daily updates on the progress, he made it happen. When the need for a third crossing of the Cataraqui River became a vital component of supporting rapid social and economic expansion in Kingston, Steven ensured the Province was a key partner with municipal and federal governments. Steven knows how to get things done-he does so with courage, wit, respect, passion and grit. Steven will build a dynamic Liberal Party, and be ready to govern and work hard for all Ontarians.
Former MPP for Northumberland-Quinte West (2003-11 & 2014-18)
