Premier Ford to visit Mildmay

Premier Doug Ford is returning to Mildmay Wednesday to fulfil a promise.

Huron Bruce Provincial Riding Association spokesperson Patrick Jileson said he expects it to be a sold-out affair.

“It indicates to me there’s still lots of support for him and his party,” he said. “Most of all this is the riding association event for [MPP] Lisa Thompson’s riding and there’s a lot of support for her still in this area.”

Jileson said the dinner is being held to thank people in the area for their support during the provincial election last year, where hundreds showed up at a campaign rally.

Ford will attend a spaghetti dinner at the Mildmay Carrick Complex Community Hall starting at 5:30 p.m.
