“I have seen the vital role that the federal government plays in the health and economic stability of a city and want to take my knowledge and passion for city building to the federal level,” she said in a statement.

O’Rourke is the first person to declare her candidacy since Longfield, the current Guelph MP, announced earlier this year that he will not be running in the next federal election.
