This morning Lambton-Kent-Middlesex PC MPP Monte McNaughton launched his province-wide Main Street, not Bay Street tour. McNaughton is the PC Critic for Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade and is fortunate to have his wife Kate and his one-year old daughter Annie joining him on his travels.
“Our party has broad talent from all over the province, in every riding. We have great, committed candidates, good organizers and campaign managers and fantastic riding level volunteers and donors,” said McNaughton. “I truly believe that for our party to be successful we need to focus on the ideas and suggestions from these very same people, the everyday members of our party. It’s about Main Street, not Bay Street."
McNaughton and his family are launching a province-wide tour and are hitting the road right away. They plan to meet with party activists, members, and potential supporters in ridings all across Ontario. McNaughton looks to these groups to form a new conservative coalition and help the party win in 2018.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Ontario is ready for a new conservative coalition. A new party of men and women, of young families, new Canadians, blue-collar workers, small businesses, retired folks and students,” said McNaughton. “Kate, Annie and I are going to travel all across Ontario to meet these people and begin the process of growing our party and building this new conservative coalition today.”
McNaughton plans several stops during the month of August including:
- August 10 (Toronto)
- August 13 (Hamilton)
- August 15 (Toronto)
- August 16 (Essex)
- August 18 (London)
- August 21 (Sudbury)
- August 23 (Brampton)
McNaughton launched a new website, www.Monte.ca to follow along with his travels. “Monte.ca will be a place for people to share ideas and share some of the wisdom that will help us rebuild our party and prepare us to win in 2018,” said McNaughton.
