CFN – Local Liberals in SD&SG Ontario have been taking a walloping in local media of late. The riding still has not replaced it’s last offering, former Cornwall Council member Mark MacDonald, who took the place of retiring MPP Jim Brownell.
The Buzz is that Cornwall city councilor Bernadette Clement (pictured left) is all but their candidate of choice after gaining some high profile action after the
falling on the sword by Dalton McGuinty transition to new Premier Kathleen Wynne.
The Liberals lost the long time riding to Conservative MPP Jim McDonell who was a first time MPP candidate.
The Tim Hudak led Conservative’s have been calling for the Liberal Minority government to fall for lack of confidence, and that rests in the hands of NDP leader Andrea Howarth.
Locally the Liberals have taken a pounding as release after release from the MPP has been printed in other media with such slug lines as;
McDonell hammers Liberals over power debacle
McDonell takes aim at Liberals over power debacle
MPP wages war on red tape
