In endorsing the nomination candidate, Thom Bennett says, “Merrilee is a star candidate for our Party, a new face to represent our rejuvenated Progressive Conservatives under our new Leader Patrick Brown.
“Merrilee is approachable, very presentable. She is respected. She is a doctor and health care advocate who knows the problems in our health care system. She has spent her life in the riding and has raised her family there.
“Merrilee can win the riding of Kanata-Carleton and will be a strong voice to add to our eastern Ontario caucus of MPPs,” Bennett says.
He adds, “I see her as a real winner, someone who will make a great contribution to some very important files at Queen’s Park.”
