Wilson thanks voters for support, looks forward to the next four years

(July 3, 2018) - I want to take this opportunity to thank you, the residents of Simcoe-Grey, for allowing me to continue to serve as your Member of Provincial Parliament at Queen’s Park. This is a tremendous honour and I promise to represent you as your voice in the 42nd Parliament of Ontario.

 

My reelection would not have been possible without the wonderful support of my volunteers who did so much work on my behalf. I want to thank them for the excellent job they all did over the course of the campaign. Election campaigns require immense amounts of work including: hammering in signs, answering phone calls, knocking on doors and speaking to voters about the important issues facing the riding and the province as a whole.

 

I also want to congratulate my fellow candidates. Running as a candidate in an election is a tremendous challenge. It requires a deep commitment and a significant amount of time. Those that put their names forward for public office deserve praise and respect.

 

This is an exciting time for the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario. For the first time in 15 years, we will form a government under the leadership of Premier Doug Ford. I look forward to serving in this new government and I am excited about the future and the opportunities to do great work for all Ontarians. This will truly be a government for the people.

 

I am proud to be able to serve as Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade in our new administration. It’s always a tremendous honour to be asked to serve in cabinet by the Premier and I look forward to this new challenge.

 

Our new government has an amazing amount of new and returning talent. The members of our caucus are very impressive and will do an outstanding job on behalf of the people. We are committed to returning trust and accountability to the government, lowering hydro prices, ending hallway health care, reducing gas taxes and making Ontario open for business again.

 

Locally, my priorities continue to be the redevelopment of Collingwood General and Marine Hospital and Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston. It’s time for these critical projects to move forward. I am committed to reviewing the decision to close the Ontario Tree Seed Plant in Angus. It is also important to get new washrooms built and the waterfront cleaned up in Wasaga Beach. I will continue to advocate in favour of getting the four new hospice beds open at Campbell House Hospice in Collingwood.

 

Representing you as your MPP is a job that I love. There is a lot of exciting and interesting work ahead and I look forward to taking this journey with all of you by my side. Please, do not hesitate to contact me or my offices if I can help you, your family or your neighbours in any dealings you have with the Province of Ontario.

 

Once again, thank you for your many years of continued support. I am humbled by the confidence you have placed in me and I will continue to be your voice at Queen’s Park.
