TORONTO– Leader Mike Schreiner kicked off the Ontario Greens’ election campaign this morning at a rally where he unveiled the party’s campaign slogan and the Hyundai Ioniq5 electric cars that he can be touring the province with over the subsequent month.
“The EVs are charged up and so are we!” Schreiner said to the group gathered at Bampot Tea House, a neighborhood Toronto cafe committed to sustainability and green initiatives.
“I need to make it clear — I’m not here to purchase your vote with one other campaign gimmick. I’m here to earn it. I’m here today, asking you to vote Green, because the opposite parties aren’t as much as the job.”
“They’re offering half measures or no measures that only paper over the cracks in Ontario’s foundation. We’d like real, recent solutions to old problems. And that’s exactly what Ontario Greens are offering – solutions to tackle the climate emergency, the housing affordability crisis and the worsening mental health crisis.”
Schreiner unveiled the Ontario Greens campaign slogan on the rally:
The Ontario you would like. The Leadership we’d like.
L’Ontario que vous voulez. Le leadership dont nous avons besoin.
“We don’t need more tweaks to a broken system,” Schreiner said. “We’d like motion now. We cannot afford to attend.”
“We will work together to construct the world you would like, and Ontario Greens will provide the leadership to make it occur.”
Schreiner can be touring the Toronto ridings of University-Rosedale and Beaches–East York before heading to Dufferin–Caledon later today. He’ll officially kick off his local Guelph campaign with a rally at 6pm in Guelph.
