Cassie Mackay Your Island New Democratic representative for District 21 - Summerside-Wilmot
Cassie has had a passion for politics for as long as she can remember, always learning as much as she can about various governments. Having worked in customer service for close to five years, she has gained the great conversational and listening skills a good politician needs. In her spare time, when she isn’t working on her psychology degree or working (as a PSB substitute or at her own social media management company), Cassie volunteers for a dog rescue organization.
Cassie self identifies as a low income individual living with disabilities/chronic illness and believes this helps her to relate more closely to her fellow islanders, understanding what exactly they need to ease these burdens. As a lifelong Summerside resident, she has seen a variety of supports and services, as well as entertainment, centred around Charlottetown which isn’t accessible for everyone. She dreams of a day where everyone island wide can access the supports and services they need and enjoy local entertainment.
Aside from politics, Cassie loves music, traveling, animals, church, and trying new things!

Fighting for you
Life is getting harder for everyday Islanders. Our health care system is on the brink – hospitals are understaffed and closing, and vital health services are at risk of being sold off to private companies. The cost of living is growing far more rapidly than families’ paycheques, leaving many worried about paying for gas, food and housing.
Things have gotten worse under Conservative and Liberal governments. Underfunding of our health care system has resulted in ER closures, hallway medicine, and unacceptable emergency and long-term care wait times. It’s not good enough for the government to stand by while Islanders are stressed about affording medical prescriptions and dental care.
People are tired of promising one thing during an election and doing the opposite after. It’s time to stop that.
If we want a future, we have to make different choices. Islanders deserve a better deal, and New Democrats are prepared to deliver it. Together, we can make practical changes that make life more affordable for everyone – no matter where you live.
New Democrats will fight for improved health care services and for us, cuts are not on the table. We’ll make sure that government works for all Islanders, making our province a more attractive place to live, work and raise a family.
When it comes to better jobs, protecting the environment and investing in strong public health care and education, New Democrats are fighting for you.
