Anderson Named Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound Liberal Candidate

Bruce Grey Owen Sound Liberals have selected a candidate for the coming provincial election.

Town of Blue Mountains Mayor Ellen Anderson was acclaimed as the candidate when no one ran against her at a nomination meeting in Owen Sound.

Anderson says Conservative leader’s Tim Hudak’s plan to slash 100,000 jobs in the civil service would be devastating not only to the individuals but their families and communities. Anderson says the Liberal budget that prompted the election call would have been good for Ontario. She says there should be more local consultation on the issue of wind turbines.

Anderson had recently announced she would not be seeking re-election as Blue Mountains mayor.

She joins three other candidates in the Bruce Grey Owen Sound race. Karen Gventer for the NDP, Jenny Parsons for the Greens and incumbent Bill Walker for the Tories.
