Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the Nomination of Lisa Thompson

“I congratulate Lisa Thompson on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Huron-Bruce for the upcoming 2018 election. 


“We in the Ontario PC Party are very excited to have Lisa back as a member of our team. Since 2011, Lisa has represented Huron-Bruce with passion, enthusiasm, and conviction. Lisa cares deeply about the interests of her constituents and gets results. 

“For years, Lisa has been a strong advocate for rural Ontario. She was successful in passing a motion calling on the government to support the agri-food industry by including it in the high school career curriculum. More recently, Lisa introduced a bill that would support farmers against the Wynne Liberals’ needlessly restrictive neonicotinoid ban. 

“As our Environment and Climate Change critic, Lisa has been leading the charge against Premier Kathleen Wynne’s cap-and-trade cash grab, which will make life even harder for Ontario families. 

“After 13 years in power, life is harder under the Liberal Government. Electricity prices are skyrocketing. Health care is being slashed. Billions of tax dollars are being wasted on scandal after scandal. It’s time for a change in Ontario.

“I look forward to continuing to work alongside Lisa as we share the Ontario PC Party’s message of a more prosperous future with the province.”
