The Liberal candidate in the 2022 Provincial Election, Anthony Leek, is congratulating MPP Greg Rickford on his win tonight and thanked residents for their support during his campaign.

“Congratulations to Greg. He’s a hard worker out there. Kudos to him, and hopefully he can get things done over the next four years,” said Leek, in an interview with Q104, KenoraOnline and DrydenNow after results were announced.

“Congratulations to everyone that ran. It’s not an easy thing to do. Glad to see participation in Kenora-Rainy River had really good numbers. I don’t think it was unexpected at all. I’m just really glad that I was a part of it. I had a great team. I’m looking forward to have the opportunity to do it again.”

Leek was a municipal Councillor in Emo before moving to Kenora, and previously ran for the Liberals in 2014 and 2011.

Anthony Leek currently serves as the OntarioLearn Coordinator for Seven Generations Education Institute. Leek is active in northwestern Ontario motorsport racing and he is a current promoter at the Lake of the Woods Speedway.
