Local politicians meet with Ontario PC Party Leader

Local politicians were well represented when Patrick Brown, the leader of Ontario’s PC party, stopped in Gananoque.

Town of Prescott Mayor Brett Todd, Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark and Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown were all in the audience when Brown stopped at the 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce yesterday. During the breakfast speech Brown detailed how he believes Ontario can become a more prosperous place that can compete with any jurisdiction in the world.

Brown’s talk focused on concerns local law-makers believe are damaging competitive advantages in Eastern Ontario, like soaring electricity rates, a lack of infrastructure funding and general concerns surrounding the labour reforms in Bill 148. Brown said he was optimistic about Ontario and believes the problems with the province are fixable. He added that an Ontario PC government would do everything possible to lower hydro bills without negatively impacting Ontarians.

MPP Clark thanked the 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber for organizing the event and said it was great hearing an optimistic message about how we can return Ontario to its rightful place as the economic engine of Canada. Mayor Todd tweeted that the meeting went well and that he was looking forward to the mayors meeting with Transport Minister Steven Del Duca on September 12th in Kingston.

Mayor Todd has been vocal about the need for change in the wake of a March chemical spill on the 401.
