Newly re-elected Tory candidate Jim McDonell meets with the media for a scrum last night (below), shortly after his victory in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry and minutes after his Progressive Conservative party won the Ontario election with a commanding majority of seats, under leader Doug Ford. McDonell met with party faithful at the Ramada Inn moments later, a gathering ecstatic at the prospect of retaking the provincial government after 15 years of Liberal rule. The scrum with McDonell includes a question from NVN about the status of the Nation Rise wind project in North Stormont, now that power will shift to a government avowedly hostile to the Green Energy Act.
“I’m glad to see they were punished for what they’ve done over the last 15 years,” said newly re-elected PC MPP Jim McDonell, referring to the rout of the Wynne Liberals in last night’s provincial election (see video below). McDonell addressed ecstatic supporters at the Ramada Inn following his own win in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.
