Twolan Hits Campaign Trail

Huron Kinloss | by John Divinski  

Mayor Mitch Twolan is hopeful to carry the Progressive Conservative banner.


One of the hopefuls to carry the Progressive Conservative banner in the upcoming provincial election is on the campaign trail.

Huron Kinloss Mayor Mitch Twolan has let his name stand for the nomination and he notes he brings a lot of municipal and county politics to the table and has lots of experience working with Queen's Park.

Twolan says in the early days of his campaigning the biggest issue, far and away is the Green Energy Act and how it deals with the development of wind turbine farms and how it deals with municipalities.

He says in a word, people are "angry."

Twolan says coupled with the wind turbine controversy is the hike in hydro bills.

He says the concerns are real and the people are not happy with what's happening in the province.

Twolan has two others going after the PC nomination--former Huron County Warden John Bezaire and the general manager of the Ontario Dairy Goat Co-operative Lisa Thompson.

The nomination meeting is tentatively set for April 16th in Ripley.

The winner will take on current Huron Bruce MPP, Agriculture and Rural Affairs Minister Carol Mitchell.
