Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Dr. Merrilee Fullerton

“I congratulate Merrilee on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Kanata-Carleton.

“A family physician, Merrilee brings a unique perspective to our Ontario PC team. Merrilee has been active in medical associations and local health care organizations, including advisory roles with both the Ontario Medical Association and Canadian Medical Association, and membership on the City of Ottawa Board of Health and the local LHIN. As a result Merrilee knows firsthand the challenges the Liberal government’s reckless cuts to health care have had on patients.

“A lifelong resident of Kanata, I know Merrilee will work tirelessly to ensure Ottawa families pay less and get ahead.

“After 14 years in power, life is harder with the Liberals. Ontario families are working hard, paying more, and getting less. Ontario deserves better. It’s time for a change.

“In Ottawa and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard for a better future. I look forward to working with Merrilee as part of our Ontario PC team as we share our positive message of change.”
