CORNWALL Ontario – Our city’s 18th candidate for Council is Heather Megill. Ms Megill is a long time resident of Cornwall originally from Newfoundland.
She previously ran for council in 1994 and 1997.
We chatted on facebook while she’s visiting back in Pouch Cove, a very old fishing community.
I asked her about being only the third of eighteen candidates for council that is a women and she had the following to say;
I’m quite happy to be a candidate for council regardless of my gender.
Heather said that she will be releasing her platform in September.
She’s a school teacher with the Upper Canada District School Board and ETFO Vice President for the board’ s Eastern Region.
Speculation is that there may be as many as 30 candidates for council including former journalist currently working at NAPA in Long Sault; Greg Kielec.
