A recent edition by Global News focused on rural Ontario and the two main parties, the PCs and the Liberals.
MP Larry Miller of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, about to retire, and Liberal Candidate for Huron-Bruce, Allan Thompson, agree on one thing – rural concerns are not always heard “in the corridors of power.”
Both say they realize that rural ridings do not make a significant difference when it comes to voting simply because the numbers are in urban centres.
Thompson however, says he doesn’t think a government can effectively do its job ” … if it is not hearing from the 25 per cent of Canadians who live in rural communities.”
Miller’s outgoing advice on retirement is ” … don’t forget where you came from.”
