Bonnie Crombie (born February 5, 1960) is a Canadian politician. Formerly a Liberal Party Member of Parliament for the electoral district of Mississauga—Streetsville, in Ontario, she was elected to Mississauga City Council in a by-election in September 2011.
Crombie was born to Polish-Canadian immigrants in Toronto, Ontario. She graduated from St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto, and received her M.B.A. from York University. Crombie was an entrepreneur and public affairs consultant and had been employed by the major trade association representing the property and casualty insurance industry as well as McDonald's Corporation and the Walt Disney Company. She was an active supporter of Michael Ignatieff in his bid for the Liberal leadership.
Crombie was elected in the 2008 Canadian federal election, defeating Wajid Khan, who had previously defected from the Liberal Party to the Conservative Party of Canada. After being elected, Crombie served in Stéphane Dion's Liberal caucus as co-chair of outreach along with Justin Trudeau. Crombie also served as the Liberal Party critic for Crown corporations.
She was defeated by Brad Butt in the 2011 election. On September 19, 2011, she was elected to Mississauga City Council in the by-election to succeed Eve Adams, winning by slightly more than 200 votes over Carolyn Parrish.
