It's rare that I have much in common with a one-issue candidate, but I found myself nodding in agreement at what Joel Loughead had to say at a recent all candidates' meeting.

Mr. Loughead is running as None of the Above because he believes that we need a Proportional Representation System because our First-Past-the-Post, Winner-Take-All political system does not serve us well. I agree.

Why did Doug Ford not trust the solid, conservative membership of the Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound (BGOS) PC riding association to pick their own candidate for this riding? These people had chosen Bill Murdoch and Bill Walker, after all.

I grew up poor in a single-parent home with my mother and a younger brother. That probably explains why I’m so frustrated and angry about poverty, and asking voters to make this issue a priority, along with climate change, as you vote on June 2.

Let me tell you what “poor” meant to me as I grew up in Niagara Falls in the 50s - which, shockingly, is not much different from what tens of thousands of children experience in 2022.
