Cornwall ON – One gets the feeling that SD&SG is a targeted riding for the Provincial Progressive Conservatives. Tim Hudak, the leader of the party spends enough time down here to almost get to vote and the locals seem to be appreciating it judging from the attendance last night at the Navy Club in spite of the rain and Colts game.
Mr. Hudak was here to honor the 68,000 Canadian Veterans who lost their lives in World War 1.
“I was honoured to be part of this impressive effort by kids across Canada and in Belgium to remember those who fought for our freedom during WWI. It is so important to remember and value those who have sacrificed everything to help make Canada the country it is today.”
Mr Hudak introduced by new Mayor of North Dundas Eric Duncan
There was a lot of fire power at the meeting. The MP came out as did many local politicians and one sensed that there’s a race going on to see how the Provincial candidate will be. Many are hoping that two term popular Liberal MPP Jim Brownell won’t be running in the next election giving them a window of opportunity.

While much of the talk was about the new private members bill to change the Family Day pubic holiday to Remembrance Day, the main buzz was about looking towards the October 2011 provincial elections.
