Encyclopedia > Jennifer Mossop

Jennifer Mossop is a politician in Ontario, Canada. She is currently a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, representing the riding of Stoney Creek for the Ontario Liberal Party.


Prior to her election, Mossop was a well-known television personality in Hamilton, Ontario. She joined Hamilton television station CHCH in 1981, and remained a member of the station's reporting team for more than twenty years. She also served as a news anchor for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and wrote articles for the Hamilton Spectator.


Mossop's election to the Ontario legislature in the 2003 election took place under unusual circumstances. The original Liberal candidate for Stoney Creek was Tony Magnini, who was not generally regarded as a credible match for the Progressive Conservative incumbent, Brad Clark. Magnini was forced to resign after serious fraud allegations emerged in mid-campaign, however, and Mossop's last-minute candidacy reinvigorated the Liberal Party's organization in the riding. On election day, Mossop was able to defeat Clark by about 5,000 votes.


She was appointed Parliamentary Assistant to Madeleine Meilleur, the Ontario Minister of Culture, on October 23, 2003.


Mossop is married to Dave Betts, a musician formerly with the Canadian rock band Honeymoon Suite.
