The following is a statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Vic Fedeli as the Ontario PC candidate for Nipissing:
“I congratulate Vic Fedeli on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Nipissing.
“Since he was first elected in 2011, Vic has been a stellar Member of Provincial Parliament in our Ontario PC Caucus. As our Finance Critic, Vic is a prominent voice exposing Liberal scandal and holding the government to account over their disastrous economic record.
“With his experiences as an MPP, the Mayor of North Bay, and as a local business owner, I know Vic understands the challenges and opportunities Nipissing faces. I have the utmost confidence that Vic will continue to work extremely hard on behalf of his community, and will hold the Wynne Liberals accountable.
“After 13 years, life is harder under the Liberals. Skyrocketing hydro rates are unaffordable for both families and businesses. Cut after cut to health care services has meant more time waiting for care, and taxpayer dollars continue to be wasted.
“In Nipissing and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard to earn the trust of voters. I look forward to working with Vic and the rest of our Ontario PC Party team as we work hard to share our positive message of change and a more prosperous Northern Ontario.”
