Barrie’s MPP hopes to be creamed

Barrie MPP Rod Jackson wants to take one right “in the smacker,” and he’s asking constituents to deliver the projectile, in this case a cream pie.
That’s right. The city’s Queen’s Park representative is hoping the pie will fly in his direction, tomorrow night (Jan. 28), during the second intermission of the game between the Barrie Colts and Ottawa 67’s at the Barrie Molson Centre.
It’s all for a good cause, of course. The most generous donor to his personal In Your Face fundraiser will earn the privilege of delivering the pie; Jackson is one of nine community leaders offering up their kissers, and perhaps a modicum of dignity, to raise funds for the United Way of Greater Simcoe County.
As well as being able to deliver a pie, the nine successful throwers will each receive a ticket to the game.

As of noon on Friday, more than $15,600 had been raised by hopeful pie pitchers. Other pie recipients are: Paul Tyndall, president of Innovation Automotive Inc.; Steve Nixon, regional vice-president, Royal Bank; Doug Leigh, founder of the Mariposa School of Skating; Mike Davenport, Davenport Subaru of Orillia; Dino Melchior, president, Melchior Management; Tara Dawn Winstone, radio announcer, B101; Mark Porter, Barrie entrepreneur and developer; Alf Dick, lawyer.
