Christine Elliott has received the endorsement of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell in her bid for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.

"Christine brings great wisdom and a tremendous wealth of experience to the position, including being an MPP for nine years, our Deputy Leader, a professional lawyer and a tireless community advocate," says Mr. McDonell. Meanwhile, his federal counterpart, Guy Lauzon, is backing Caroline Mulroney in the race where Patrick Brown is trying to regain the post he left only about a month ago. Doug Ford and Tanya Granic Allen are also seeking the job.

Speak up to save your schools.

MPP Jim McDonell encourages all residents of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry to visit the Upper Canada District School Board's accommodation review page at and click through to the online survey to provide their feedback on the proposed closure of many schools in our area.

"Community and school groups have raised their voices throughout the riding on the issue and every resident can contribute their voice to the conversation and show the broad concern throughout the community," he commented. "Completing the online survey will give the Board a tangible measure of the scale of local involvement in discussing the planned closures. Without sufficient responses, the Ministry of Education may conclude that the community is not interested or concerned about the plan – this can’t be the message we send."

The survey, which closes February 1, is accessible at
