Morgane Oger M.S.M. B.A.Sc.
Morgane Oger believes in addressing injustice, corruption, and political interference that stops people from participating equally in our society.
Whether it is broken promises made by those who represent us, allowing hatred and disinformation to be amplified in Canada's public institutions because “that kind" of discrimination is still quietly tolerable to decision-makers who run our institutions, Canadians know that injustice, corruption and political interference harm everyone.
- Morgane Oger knows what it is like to have to decide between paying for a prescription and putting food on the table. It is horrible and nobody should have to decide between their family’s healthcare and other basic needs.
Morgane will push for Canada to live up to our climate commitments. Morgane believes in ensuring we prioritize support for commercial projects that move us closer to addressing the ongoing climate emergency and holding off on projects that cause harm.
- Morgane believes public infrastructure needs to be delivered when it is needed rather than promised for the distant future. Children need to attend elementary schools they can walk to. All learners deserve the very best public education possible. Public transit needs to serve people where they live, where they play, and where they work.
- Morgane will work with everyone at every level of government to ensure that public services are delivered as effectively as possible.
