Election update from OFLA:
The Oakville Federal Liberal Association is very pleased to announce that its candidate, John Oliver, was elected as the MP for Oakville in the recent federal election.
In winning the Oakville riding, Mr. Oliver secured 49% of the vote and unseated the Conservative incumbent, Terence Young. The results represent a substantial increase in Liberal support from the 2011 election. Mr. Young had represented the riding for the past eight years.
Mr. Oliver brings considerable experience and leadership skills to this role. He is well-known in the Oakville community as a result of his 20-year tenure as the head of the Oakville Hospital. Mr. Oliver played a key role in the biggest infrastructure project in Oakville’s history: the new, $2.7 B Oakville Hospital being constructed at Third Line and Dundas Street. He has experience dealing with all levels of government, and he served previously as Assistant Deputy Minister for Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. His understanding of how to bring both private and public sector stakeholders together to achieve results for the community will be invaluable to his new role.
