As a candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada nomination in Huron-Bruce, I make a clear and simple promise, to work as hard as I possibly can to create opportunity for the people of Huron-Bruce, who live on the farms, on the country roads and in the towns and villages of this riding. Huron-Bruce deserves a stronger voice in Ottawa, an ambitious, proactive and effective MP who will speak up forcefully for our rural communities and make sure that rural concerns are heard in the corridors of power. We came very close in 2015 and it is time to build on that momentum and to win.
I chose to run here, in Huron-Bruce, not just because of my deep roots and because this is where most of my extended family lives, but because I want to serve and represent a rural riding. Making sure that rural communities get the attention they deserve should be the number one job for the MP from Huron-Bruce. Working to create opportunity and build the rural economy in Huron-Bruce is my top priority. The needs of seniors, access to healthcare and the challenges posed by mental health issues and youth drug addiction in rural communities are particular concerns. We need to work harder to take care of each other, to honour our rural traditions of sharing and caring.
