Pacis, who was born in North York and grew up in Mississauga, was at the lead of four highly-qualified candidates in an election race with record voter turnout. Getting up on stage with her three-year-old daughter to celebrate her victory, she thanked her dedicated volunteers and urged the hundreds of Ontario PC supporters in attendance to join forces to win the election in 2018.
Social media recognized the historic occasion of a Pinoy being nominated to represent Mississauga at Queen’s Park. Ontario PC party leader and Premier candidate Patrick Brown announced that “A proud Canadian of Filipino origin, Angely brings a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to our modern, inclusive and pragmatic Ontario PC team.”
Patrick Brown also joined the Team Pacis volunteers for a celebratory reception at Berto’s Cuisine restaurant on Dundas in Mississauga on January 6, 2017, where Ontario PC supporters new and old, of all ethnic and national origins, joined together for Halo Halo.
Congratulations to Attorney Angely M. Q. Pacis on her victory, and we hope for more to come!
