KAWARTHA LAKES-New Democrats in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock have selected Barbara Doyle, co-founder of the Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition, to be their NDP candidate in the 2022 provincial election.
“Barbara’s leadership in the fight for public health care is exactly what families need right now after years of cuts under the Ford Conservatives and the Liberals before them. Together with Barbara, we will work together to hire more health care workers, invest in schools, and make life more affordable for the hard-working people of Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. Families can’t afford any more of Doug Ford’s cuts to their services while he enriches his buddies. It’s time for an NDP MPP you can trust to fight you and your family, and that’s Barbara Doyle.” said NDP Deputy Leader John Vanthof.
Doyle was born, raised and lives in her hometown of Lindsay. She currently manages the daily operations, exhibit curation and project coordination of the local community museum in the City of Kawartha Lakes. Doyle co-founded the Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition and volunteers with community organizations working to end domestic violence, including Northumberland Domestic Violence Monitoring Committee.
“I am committed to standing up for local families to ensure that they have the services they need. I have fought to defend local public health care and I will keep fighting to expand it so people and families in our communities get the care they need where and when they need it. I am determined to make life more affordable for families who have been hit hard during this pandemic with skyrocketing prices for housing, child care and some of the very basics of life. Together with Andrea Horwath and the NDP, we can have a brighter future with more access to health care, education, affordable housing, good jobs, and real action on climate change.” stated Barbara Doyle, NDP candidate for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock
