MPP Toby Barrett Endorses MP Patrick Brown for Leader of the PC Party of Ontario

Haldimand—Norfolk MPP believes Patrick Brown is best choice to rebuild Party

BRAMPTON, ON, Feb. 20, 2015 /CNW/ - Today, the Patrick Brown Leadership Campaign is pleased to welcome support from Haldimand—Norfolk Member of Provincial Parliament, Toby Barrett.

"We have clearly been doing something wrong because the Party has not won an election since 1999. The world has changed and so must the way we run government, our elections, and our Party," said Toby Barrett. "I made a conscious decision to consult with my constituents and together, we believe that Patrick Brown is the only candidate who can reach out to all Ontarians and bring the much needed renewal the Party so desperately needs."

As the MPP for Haldimand—Norfolk for the last 20 years, and the Official Opposition Critic to the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, MPP Barrett brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as insight into what went wrong in the last four elections, leaving Ontario to become a have-not province under Liberal rule for more than a decade.

"It is an honour to have Toby's endorsement and support," said Patrick Brown. "The Liberal government continues to run the Province without care or concern for the interests and priorities of Ontarians because they know they won't be held accountable by an Opposition stuck in the past and unable to beat them at the polls. That's why the PC Party can't afford to choose the same old, same old in this leadership race. Thousands of Ontarians are joining me to build a new PC Party that reflects the modern face of our province and that will win the next election. Together, we will hold Liberals accountable on Election Day."

Patrick is committed to growing the Party to 100,000 members from every walk of life and every corner of the province, so that together, the PC Party of Ontario will win the next election.
