Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Barrie Springwater Oro-Medonte

“I am honoured and humbled to have the support of Ontario PC membership in Barrie – Springwater – Oro-Medonte, and to be acclaimed as the PC candidate for the 2018 election.

“For 17 years I have been proud to represent Simcoe County at all three levels of government. For too long our community has been cut out from government decision-making at Queen’s Park. Over the next 10 months, I will work hard to ensure Simcoe County families have a strong voice.

“After 14 years in power, life is harder with the Liberals. Ontario families are working hard, paying more, and getting less. This has got to change.

“The next election will be about who will make it easier for you and your family to make ends meet and get ahead. I want Ontario families who work hard to pay less and get ahead. Together with our modern, inclusive and pragmatic Ontario PC team we will deliver real change for the better.”
