Federal Liberal candidate confirmed for Perth-Wellington riding

The Liberal candidate for the federal riding of Perth-Wellington has been confirmed.

Pirie Mitchell said he believes all Canadians need to create opportunities for the next generations. He added that he wants Canada to continue to be a beacon to the world, admired and respected for Liberal values to benefit everyone.

Following a career as an elementary and secondary special education teacher, Mitchell went on to lead churches in St. Marys, Stratford, and Palmerston as a minister with the United Church of Canada.

Mitchell and his wife, Ruth, are proud parents and grandparents, with five children and three grandchildren between them a passionate commitment to building a better future for families throughout the region.

“I cannot win this riding on my own,” said Mitchell. “Winning depends on two things: the right policies and the collective work of many. Winning is a team effort. I am committed to winning this race and giving us a representative in Ottawa who cares about people and Liberal values.”
