Haldimand Norfolk candidatesBy Daniel R. Pearce, Simcoe Reformer
KOHLER – The first all-candidates meeting of the 2014 provincial election barely got underway and Liberal candidate Karen Robinson had little choice. Sitting in the old wooden Haldimand Federation of Agriculture building in this farming hamlet southwest of Cayuga, which is surrounded by some of the most hated icons in rural Ontario — the spinning blades of wind turbines — Robinson had to publicly disagree with her government and party.

She called the Liberal’s green energy policies “a huge disappointment” and vowed that, if elected, she would represent the “many views” in Haldimand-Norfolk through “petition and lobby.”

Tuesday night marked the unofficial start of the local campaign, which has so far been quiet. Four people are trying to unseat Progressive Conservative Toby Barrett, who has held the riding for nearly 20 years. (Libertarian candidate Brad Mottashed was absent from the meeting.) Read article

  1. I only see Toby Barrett signs around the riding so far. The Liberals are utterly despised here. Last election, Toby won with 61% of the vote, an achievement few had in the last election.

  2. Barret, why don’t you actually do something for the people living with turbines in Haldimand ,
    instead of just smiling or writing a letter that does nothing or handing out your signs.

  3. PJM Interconnection LLC, Montgomery,PA, Nanticoke & PJM Interconnector.

    Does this information ring-a-bell for the Nanticoke HVDC & PJM deal?
