Parent advocate Granic Allen running for Conservative nomination in Mississauga-Centre
ONTARIO, Canada, March 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life and pro-family advocate Tanya Granic Allen announced today she is running to represent Ontario’s Progressive Conservative party in the province’s June 7 election. She will run for the Progressive Conservative nomination in Mississauga-Centre.
Granic Allen is the parent advocate and mother of four who took Ontario’s PC party leadership race by storm earlier this year. As president of Parents as First Educators (PAFE), Granic Allen has fought against the imposition of radical sex ed programs in Ontario schools. PAFE is one of the leading voices for parental rights in Canada.
Granic Allen was widely acknowledged, even by mainstream media, as the kingmaker in Doug Ford’s victory for leadership of the PC Party. As a result of her presence in the race, Ford has promised to repeal Ontario’s radical sex ed program.
“If the good residents of Mississauga-Centre will have me, I would love to be their representative at Queen's Park,” Granic Allen told CP24 as she announced her run this afternoon.
If Granic Allen wins the PC nomination, she’ll face the Liberal Party and New Democrat Party nominees in the general election.
“We’re over the moon with excitement by this announcement,” Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition (CLC), told LifeSiteNews. “The PC Party needs Tanya’s strong, principled voice. Queen’s Park needs her as well, to bring her energy and determination, her ideas, and most importantly, her pro-life-and-family values, which align closely with those of millions of ordinary, working class families.”
CLC backed Granic Allen when she was running for party leadership.
“I think the residents of Mississauga Centre should be thrilled by the prospect of getting Tanya to represent them as well,” said Fonseca. “With Tanya in their corner, they’d have a true fighter in their corner, looking out to defend and promote their interests. That dogged persistence that helped shoot Tanya to fame during the debates would serve her local constituents very well.”
“If she wins the nomination and moves on to become a Progressive Conservative MPP, she will be in Doug Ford’s caucus and in a position to ensure that his pledge to repeal Kathleen Wynne’s radical sex curriculum gets honored,” explained Fonseca.
Fonseca said Granic Allen’s victory would mean “a seat at the table and a loud clear voice” for social conservatives.
He added: “Campaign Life Coalition urges every single pro-life, pro-family and free-speech loving resident of Mississauga Centre to join the PC Party today, in order to become voting members and earn the right to cast a ballot for Tanya at the upcoming PC nomination election, which I expect will be held within the next 3 to 4 weeks.”
“Dear parents concerned about your children being sexualized in class, this is your chance to elect the strongest advocate for parental rights that you could ever hope for. Seize it.”
LifeSiteNews will provide dates as they become available.
