The Drive for the Ontario PC Five: An Open Letter to PC Supporters in Ontario By-Elections

Matt and TimAn open riding is a gift for opposition parties.  For Ontario voters, Christmas came in July when Kathleen Wynne called 5 By-Elections for Liberal held ridings to take place August 1st.   We are in the last four days from today (July 28th) for all parties to canvass those undecided voters and to make sure supporters know where to vote and make sure they get out and vote.

This is the week of the Drive for the Ontario PC Five.

I won’t get into polls and the results that have been reported, they have been motivation for our PC Candidates and their teams to work harder, reach more people and prepare better for Election Day. Make no mistake though, the polls numbers will also be motivation for the other parties and candidates to prove the numbers wrong.  Our candidates need you to prove the momentum to elect Ontario PC’s is on track.

Ontario PC’s have a unique chance to really make a statement to Premier Wynne and Former Premier McGuinty that we have had it – and change is coming.  These by-elections are only the first step!

Rather than spit out more motivational statements to get you out to canvass, volunteer and VOTE I will provide you with the information you need to help you help the Drive for the Ontario PC Five:

McGuinty’s gone, but not long forgotten


I had a conversation at a tenant BBQ in Ottawa Centre, the person lived in Ottawa South and would be voting in the By-election on August 1st.  Asked if they had decided how they were going to vote and if they minded telling me, “Liberal” is the reply I received.

I asked why, and inquired if she was not concerned about the waste of money – the gas plants etc.  They replied saying the candidate was not connected to any of those decisions and didn’t feel they were reasons worthy of changing their decisions.

The voter above could be in the minority of Liberal supporters.


Like other Ottawa/Eastern Ontario MPP’s, PC Candidates and PC Party Leader Tim Hudak, I have been out supporting Matt Young in his bid to become the Ottawa South MPP on August 1st by going door to door.  The work ethic Matt has put towards this campaign is indicative of how he will not let any Ottawa South resident have to wait for assistance from their MPP.  With Matt as their MPP, Ottawa South will no longer have an absentee representative.

To me it is no surprise that many doors are changing colours, noting that they do not support how this current Liberal McGuinty/Wynne government has decided to first place 


gas plants, remove them and then cover it up. This will be the legacy that ends the Liberal Party reign in Ontario.  A legacy built on spent and wasted millions of dollars, billions of dollars of debt and deficit and the deceit that is ‘lost’, ‘deleted’ and then found.

This round of five by-elections will be a vote of confidence for the Liberals, a confidence that is slowly being taken away from the government by the strong leadership of Tim Hudak in these by-elections and by Matt Young the PC Candidate in Ottawa South.

Following the 2007 and 2011 Provincial Elections, we have always asked, ‘how can people support McGuinty after raising taxes, hydro rates and imposing a new tax on Ontario?’  In 2013 we see that voters have finally seen through the spin and spent money. 

By the end of day August 1st, Ottawa South may very likely have an MPP that is not a Liberal or a McGuinty. 

I hope to see the electorate of Ottawa South vote Matt Young to represent Ottawa South in Queens Park
