MPP Randy Hillier Pens Letter that Slaps Down Seniors Cuts & PSW Abuse AUG 10, 2016

Randy Hillier, the PC MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington is one of my favorite politicians in Ontario.   It’s not that I agree with all of his positions or support his party, but when you talk with him you can feel a passion and integrity that is sorely lacking in so many other elected officials.
