GANANOQUE — The Green Party of Ontario is proud to announce that Fiona Jager has been nominated as its candidate for Leeds–Grenville–Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes ahead of the 2022 provincial election.
Jager is a registered nurse, a registered psychotherapist, a small business owner, a professor of nursing and a mom.
“As a nurse, I’m deeply aware of the need for changes to the way we approach health care — both in the interest of patients and health-care workers,” said Jager. “That includes addressing the social determinants of health, like making housing more accessible and communities more caring and connected.”
“After a difficult two years of the pandemic, it’s crucial that Queen’s Park hears directly from the frontline as we work to shore up the overburdened health system,” Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner said. “Fiona will be a strong voice for frontline health workers and is committed to making health care in Ontario more accessible and equitable.”
As a mother of school-age children, Jager is dedicated to building livable, vibrant, and affordable communities that will make Ontario a better place for generations to come. This includes protecting greenspaces and waterways, tackling the climate crisis, and creating good, green jobs.
Jager currently lives in Gananoque. She is interested in local food production and enjoys gardening, hiking, and kayaking in the beautiful Thousand Islands region.
