Kemptville native Derek Morley is hoping to land a seat at Queen’s Park. He is the Green Party candidate for Leeds-Grenville. Morley says voter reform is needed across the province and country.
His priority is to grow the tourism industry throughout the riding. Morley says the models being used in Gananoque and Merrickville to bolster tourism should be used across Leeds-Grenville.
He says the riding is diverse and full of opportunities for growth, such as building on the Eat Local movement. The provincial election is June 7 and the MyKemptvilleNow newsroom spoke with all the Leeds-Grenville provincial candidates this week to help you make an informed decision on voting day. Libertarian candidate Bill Buckley declined to be interviewed. To find out if you’re registered to vote, visit elections.on.ca.
An all-candidates meeting will be held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre on May 31 at 7:00pm.
