You can never go wrong raising the names of Grey County's trailblazing political women Agnes McPhail and Nellie McClung. The Bruce-Grey Owen Sound Liberal nomination meeting began with just such an invocation by chair Mary Anne Alton, former director of education for the Bluewater District School Board. Under party rules, nominations were closed August 14, and Kimberly Love's nomination went uncontested.

Kaisha Thompson, a 24-year-old law student from Meaford, nominated Love, recalling their first meeting. "It was when Stephen Harper prorogued parliament and the Liberals continued to work. Kim came to Ottawa as part of the shadow cabinet. It was her compassion and positivity that struck me right away.She is progressive yet pragmatic." Thompson said the region needs Love "so our voice is heard in Ottawa, not Stephen Harper's voice echoed in Grey-Bruce." She spoke passionately about the need for policies that will allow young people to come home to Grey-Bruce and practice law or medicine or buy back the family farm. Thomson was joined in her nomination speech by Alex Watson, 22, from Owen Sound. Both have accepted roles in the local Liberal campaign.

After final approval of The Sydenham condominium site plan by City council last night, developer Ron Pirie wasted no time in getting shovels in the ground, ceremonially at least. Demolition will begin this September, and full completion of the 32-unit luxury condominiums is expected by late in 2015.

Mayor Deb Haswell called the development "a game-changer" for the city and its downtown. She thanked the new condominium unit owners for investing in their community.
