Blyth – MPP Lisa Thompson has once again been nominated as the Progressive Conservative candidate for Huron-Bruce in the upcoming 2018 Provincial Election.
“I’m honoured to have the confidence and support in Huron-Bruce to continue the good work of making Ontario prosper once more under a PC government,” said Thompson. “Our communities are full of hard-working people trying to support their families, seniors and small business, and they deserve to have their voices and concerns heard. Unfortunately, the Liberals just don’t seem to care until it costs them votes at the polls.”
Lisa has served the riding of Huron-Bruce since first being elected in 2011, and currently serves as the PC Critic on the Environment and Cap-and-Trade file. Among her many activities, Lisa’s most recent initiatives have included: local public meetings regarding small business and Hydro One; challenging the flawed cap-and-trade scheme the Liberal government implemented on January 1; the successful passage of a private members' motion that will incorporate a component on opportunities in the agri-food sector to the grades 9 and 10 Careers and Guidance curriculum; as well as introducing legislation that would support farmers in accessing the crop inputs and agrologist expertise they need.
“I continue to hear from people across our riding that life is getting harder under the Liberals. Our hydro rates are skyrocketing, we’re having new fees imposed on us through cap-and-trade, and we’re seeing economic opportunity and jobs flee our province at an alarming rate. We need to work together to ensure that we send a strong message to Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals in 2018: Huron-Bruce and Ontario have had enough of the mismanagement and waste. We’re ready for a government that takes our concerns seriously. We’re ready for a Progressive Conservative government.”
