A major rally attended by close to 300 Mississauga Centre riding residents was held on November 5, 2016 with many of the attendees registering and pledging to support Angely Pacis’s bid for nomination as the Progressive Conservative Party candidate for Member of Provincial Parliament for the riding on December 3, 2016.

Angely Pacis, daughter of the late Dr. Lydia Pacis, announced earlier her run in the newly created riding of Mississauga Centre in August, 2016.  Since then, she has held three major rallies where she talked about her desire to serve as the Riding’s representative at Queen’s Park, Ontario.

She has also addressed  other gatherings, baring her plans to be a strong advocate on a variety of issues including jobs, taxes, economic growth, immigration, health care, education, and the justice system.

A member of both the Quebec and Ontario bars, A.Pacis is a fluently- bilingual lawyer with an extensive background in immigration, human rights, constitutional and aboriginal laws.

“I am very impressed with Angely’s qualifications and her passion to serve” said Ruffy Romano, a long-time resident of Mississauga. “I believe she can competently articulate our concerns as a member of Ontario’s parliament”, he added. 

Among those who joined the rally were Senator Tobias Enverga, KCCC president Resty del Rosario,  Dr. Solon Guzman, and PCCF president Romy Rafael. 

Enverga and Guzman exhorted the mostly Filipino crowd to "join hands and work together" to send one of their own to Queen’s Park.
