PC leader Hudak visits Barrie

Barrie is on the receiving end of some high-profile political visits, with Tim Hudak, leader of the Ontario PCs, dropping by for a Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce lunch and a chat.
His visit follows one by Premier Dalton McGuinty last week, who was in town shortly after two of his cabinet ministers, education minister Leona Dombrowsky and transportation minister Kathleen Wynne, were in town.
It’s perhaps a signal that Barrie will be a hotly contested riding in the Oct. 25 provincial election.
Hudak is scheduled to talk at the chamber luncheon on Monday, March 14. His planned topic will be: Change Ahead: Taking Ontario down a Different Path. The event begins at 11:30 with registration, followed by lunch, and then Hudak’s talk at 12:30 p.m. The venue is Fendley Hall, 565 Bryne Drive.
The PC leader was first elected 15 years ago, and represents Niagara-West Glanbrook. As a cabinet minister, Hudak held three economic portfolios, and has a masters degree in economics.
An interesting side note is that if elected, he’d be the first Ontario premier whose family didn’t originate in the British Isles.
