PC Leader Patrick Brown endorses Sam Oosterhoff with a vote days away

In just a few days PC party members in Niagara West will vote for the person they want to represent them in the next Provincial election.

Regional Councillor Tony Quirk will be on the ballot, alongside Ontario's youngest MPP Sam Oosterhoff.

The 19 year old has only been on the job a few months.

On March 7th, party members will go back to the polls in the nomination vote which will be held at the West Niagara Agricultural Centre from 5:30-8:30pm.

Quirk and former St.Catharines MP Rick Dykstra lost the last nomination to Oosterhoff.

Quirk tells CKTB this vote will be different because the riding boundary is different with the creation of the Niagara West Riding.

He says there is a lot of members from Wainfleet and St. Catharines who are now eligible to vote.

Oosterhoff grabbed attention when he started a GoFundMe page to support his re-election campaign.

The financial goal was $50,000.

The page has since been taken down.

In a full page ad taken out in local papers, PC Leader Patrick Brown endorsed Oosterhoff saying he is a valued member of the Ontario PC team and has brought energy, integrity, and commitment to the families and businesses of Niagara-West-Glanbrook riding.

Quirk says Brown has made it clear that he will endorse sitting MPP's, and he respects that.
