Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Michael Parsa as the Ontario PC Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill candidate:
“I congratulate Michael Parsa on being nominated by the Ontario PC members of Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill as our new candidate for the 2018 General Election, and a member of our modern, inclusive, and pragmatic team. As a local business owner and a long-time community activist, I am sure that Michael Parsa will be a strong voice for the constituents in the riding.
“After 13 years in power, life is harder under the Liberals. Skyrocketing hydro rates have driven Ontarians into energy poverty and businesses out of the province. We continue to see cut after cut to our frontline health care services, and Wynne Liberal scandals have meant that Ontario lags far behind other provinces.
“Enough is enough. Clearly, it’s time for a change in Ontario. It’s time for a government that puts the people of Ontario first, not their political self interest.”
Statement from Ontario PC Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill candidate Michael Parsa:
“I am pleased to announce that I will be running for the Ontario PC Party in the riding of Aurora–Oak Ridges–Richmond Hill in the next general election. As a resident and small business owner in Richmond Hill, I look forward to having the opportunity to continue serving our community.
“Patrick Brown and the Ontario PC Party are building a strong team and plan to return our province back to prosperity, and I am honoured to be a part of this movement. Our party is committed to growing the economy, while returning public trust and accountability to Queen's Park. As your candidate and Member of Provincial Parliament, I will work tirelessly to ensure that we deliver on those promises.”
