Today Mayor Crombie announced that she has formed an exploratory committee to look into a
leadership bid for the Ontario Liberal Party.

Mayor Crombie is also the current Chair of OBCM, a non-partisan organization comprised of
mayors of Ontario cities with populations of 100,000 or more. OBCM provides a voice for big
city mayors in policy debates that impact Ontario cities. Through policy development, advocacy,
discussion and partnerships, OBCM supports strong and effective cities.

In accordance with our by-laws, Mayor Crombie will be temporarily stepping down as Chair of
OBCM until her official decision is made. Vice-Chair, Marianne Meed Ward, Mayor of Burlington
will therefore step in as Acting-Chair at this time.
