Caroline Mulroney

Progressive Conservative Leadership Candidate
Government of Ontario

Caroline Mulroney

Ontarians are crying out for change. They’re depending on us.

We have to help families, make life more affordable, and care for those in need. To do that, we have to win.

With a provincial election just weeks away, members of the Ontario PC Party have a simple choice: who is the candidate who has the best chance of beating Kathleen Wynne and leading the Party to victory in June?

Caroline is uniquely positioned to appeal to the voters our Party needs to win the next election: hard working Ontarians, be it moms, young Ontarians, newcomers and everyone in between.

She is an accomplished professional woman with a career in the private sector spanning business and law. At the same time, she’s a mom raising four beautiful kids with her husband Andrew. Caroline gives back, running a charity that benefits homeless and at-risk women and girls.

Yes, she’s had a unique upbringing. As the daughter of a Progressive Conservative Prime Minister, Caroline has been immersed in PC politics all her life. Her father is, after all, a man who knows something about how to win elections! It’s made her strong. She knows what real scrutiny is like, the kind our next leader will have to face.

She has strong roots in our Party and retail politics is in her blood. As the PC candidate in York-Simcoe and the only nominated candidate in this race, she has knocked on thousands of doors, made fundraising calls, attended coffee parties, and hosted volunteer appreciation events. As Leader, she’ll do the same.

Caroline represents change for our Party and for Ontario. She is something new, different, forward-looking and positive. No one will work harder. She carries no baggage at a time when we can’t afford any.

The stakes are just too high. Too many people are counting on us... looking to us to bring meaningful positive change to Ontario. We can’t let them down. With Caroline as Leader, we won’t.

The Honourable Lisa Raitt

MP for Halton
Deputy Leader of the Conservative Party

The Honourable Lisa Raitt

The Hon. Lisa Raitt, MP for Halton, was first elected to the House of Commons in 2008, and was re-elected in 2011.

In July 2013, Ms. Raitt was appointed Minister of Transport, having to almost immediately deal with the tragic train derailment at Lac-Megantic, Que., quickly laying down measures to not only help with the trauma and devastation the community faced, but to impose stiff temporary rail restrictions and then pushing successfully for tougher tank-car standards while the Transportation Safety Board carried out its arm’s-length investigation.

Previous to the Transport portfolio, she was appointed Minister of Natural Resources in October 2008 and Minister of Labour in January 2010.

Prior to her election, Ms. Raitt was President and Chief Executive Officer of the Toronto Port Authority (TPA), where she had previously held the important positions of general counsel and harbourmaster.

As a lawyer, Ms. Raitt specialized in the areas of intellectual property, commercial litigation and commercial shipping.

Ms. Raitt is an engaged member of her community where her sons, J.C. and Billy, are actively involved in hockey, soccer and football. She continues to work closely with the Mental Health Commission of Canada to break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. In 2002, Ms. Raitt was invited to become a member of the Canadian chapter of the worldwide Young Presidents’ Organization.

She was raised by her grandparents as the youngest of seven children in Whitney Pier, Cape Breton, where her grandfather was a union executive after having worked as a “scalesman” at the International Coal Pier.

A graduate of St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Ms. Raitt also holds a Master of Science degree in chemistry from the University of Guelph, and later earned her law degree at Osgoode Hall.

She resides with her boys in Moffat, Ontario.
