Goldie and her dog Baxter
First elected on June 7, 2018, Goldie is honoured to have represented her community in the Ontario Legislature for the last four years. A former small business owner & international trade lawyer, community volunteer, youth mentor and a proud life-long Ontarian, Goldie knows what it takes to get the job done.
Goldie promised to be a strong voice for the people of Carleton and in just 4 years, she’s delivered on that promise – and more. Her accomplishments include securing funding for 7 schools (the most of any other MPP in the province), bringing natural gas to rural Ottawa, assisting local non-profit organizations in securing provincial grants and building new local long-term care beds.
In only 4 years, Goldie has accomplished more for her community than the Liberals ever did in the past 15 years. But Goldie knows that there is still so much more to do. Her proven track-record of local accomplishments shows her dedication to serving the people of Carleton.
She’s humbled to once again be your Ontario PC Candidate for the Provincial Riding of Carleton in the upcoming June 2022 election.
Goldie’s story, in her own words:
“My parents immigrated to Canada in 1986 – I was only 1 year old at the time. They left everything behind in Iran because they believed Canada would give their children a better life and more opportunities. My father tells me that when we landed in Montreal, we only had two suitcases and $50 to our names. My parents worked very hard to build a new life for us in Canada. As new immigrants and then Canadian citizens, they made sure to integrate themselves into Canadian society, and they instilled in my sister and I the importance of respecting and living by our Canadian values.
My father comes from a farming family and he is an electrician, a member of the IBEW Union, and is still working daily with his hands. After staying at home to raise her two daughters, my mother now gives back to the community by working at a charity for isolated senior citizens.
My parents taught me that the road to success comes through hard work, determination and sacrifice. We have certainly come a long way from where we started in 1986, but I will never forget our humble beginnings.”
