PC Leader Patrick Brown can now join the Ontario Legislature after winning a by-election in Simcoe. Northern MPP Vic Fedeli helped Brown campaign, and says he was well received. One of Brown’s campaign issues was red-tape that companies have to deal with. He says the Wynne Liberals bury businesses in it, and nothing can get done.
Fedeli says the Ring of Fire is the perfect example of that. He says a permit that should have been approved in 45 days took three years to get. And that’s why Ontario is falling behind, according to Brown and Fedeli. Brown won last week’s by-election by a large margin, which Fedeli says should send shockwaves to the Liberals when the MPP’s return to Queen’s Park.
