Parks says on Facebook, Patrick Brown is the only leader for the Ontario PC Party that has given the north the attention we have been demanding for decades. His passion for the north and the fact he invited me along for the ride makes me proud to throw my endorsement behind him.
I have traveled all over northern Ontario with Patrick showcasing what we have, the potential that exists and the problems we need to change. Thanks to all those that welcomed him and provide their stories on what they want to see happen. We have not seen a leader in any party actually drive across the entire north and I have the photos to show it. So please consider buying a membership to help me make sure that the leader of the Ontario PC Party has our interests at heart. In just over 2 years, he has been north more than 30 times.
