The following is a statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Bob Bailey as the Ontario PC candidate for Sarnia-Lambton:
“I congratulate Bob Bailey on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Sarnia-Lambton.
“Since he was first elected in 2007, Bob has been a dedicated representative for his community. I have the utmost confidence that Bob will continue to be a strong advocate for his constituents.
“At Queen’s Park, Bob has proven himself to be an MPP who is willing to reach across party lines in the best interests of the province. Bob has been successful in passing a number of Private Member’s Bills, and has been a strong advocate for the continued growth of the oil and natural gas industry in Ontario.
“After 13 years in power, life is harder under the Liberals. Ontarians are faced with skyrocketing hydro rates, cuts after cut to health care services, and Liberal scandal, waste and mismanagement is making life increasingly unaffordable.
“I look forward to working with Bob to spread the Ontario PC Party’s positive message of change in Sarnia-Lambton and across the province.”
