19 year old wins PC nomination in Niagara West riding
The youngest-ever member of the Ontario legislature will represent the Progressive Conservatives in next year's provincial election.
Nineteen-year-old Sam Oosterhoff beat challenger Tony Quirk in his Niagara West riding last night to be the candidate for the June 2018 vote.
This is the second time Oosterhoff beat the Grimsby regional councillor for the nomination.
The teenager was first elected in a byelection last November in a riding previously held by former party leader Tim Hudak.
Oosterhoff attracted quite a spotlight when he arrived at the legislature, not just due to his age, but also by espousing social conservative views at a time when Brown is trying to brand the Tories as inclusive and socially progressive
