Greeted to chants of “PREMIER” Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie officially launched her campaign to become leader of the Ontario Liberals.

“I want to announce that I will be a candidate for the leadership of the Ontario Liberal Party,” said Crombie as she officially kicked off her campaign Wednesday.

After saying she wants to renew, rebuild and re-energize the party, Crombie¬†wasted no time attacking Doug Ford’s track record.

“What is Doug Ford and the Conservatives answer? Privatized healthcare my friends, more online learning, helping their buddies get richer, that is not the Ontario you want and it is not the Ontario that I want.”

Crombie says she’s leaving the door open to swapping out portions of protected Greenbelt land as long as there proper consultations, saying the Ford government failed to explain his plan.

She’s not too worried about name recognition outside the GTA.

“I will go out and meet with those communities to the best of my ability, and I think many people are aware of who I am ,” said Crombie.

She becomes the fourth contestant in the race that includes Nate Erskine-Smith, Yasir Naqvi, and Ted Hsu.

Ontario Liberals will vote for their new leader through ranked ballots in late November, with the results to be unveiled Dec. 2.
