Sudbury NDP MPP incumbent Jamie West will be seeking re-election in June 2022.

New Democrats in Sudbury opted to have Jamie West retain his candidacy for the next provincial election, set to take place on or before June 2.

“Jamie West is a strong voice for the people of Sudbury,” NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said in a media release. “He’s put the priorities of Sudbury and Northern Ontario first at Queen’s Park, pushing back against Doug Ford’s big cuts and bad decisions, and fighting for Sudbury and the North to finally get its fair share.”

In this release, West said that he is “humbled and excited” to be running again, and also took time to lob criticisms at Premier Doug Ford and the province’s Progressive Conservatives.

“We need to … re-build Francophone and Indigenous post-secondary education, make sure Highway 69 is finally completed and give Sudbury families improved access to health care and supports.”

West has been the MPP for Sudbury since 2018 and currently serves as the official opposition critic for northern infrastructure, transportation and roads.
