Granic Allen Brings Leadership Campaign To Windsor

Tanya Granic Allen is the latest candidate to make a stop in Windsor vying to become the next leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives.

She met with supporters Tuesday night speaking about several issues including repealing the current sexual education curriculum and putting a stop to government subsidized wind turbine operations.

Granic Allen says children are losing their innocence far too early courtesy of the Wynne government.

"I'm the president of a parental rights advocacy group. I've been hearing from a lot of parents in this province in the last few years. It's simply too much too soon. The curriculum sexualizes children. Parents need some relief. They want to have their rights respected and we need to take the pressure off teachers in the classroom and as well as the children who are being taught too much too soon."

She says the wind energy sector has gotten out of control.

"There will be no more raping and pillaging of the taxpayer in Ontario and those windmills will come out of the ground. What we have going on here is the corporations are getting fat off the taxpayers. So we're all suffering with these high hydro rates. We can bring instant energy relief to Ontarians who are living in energy poverty. Once we have lower energy costs, industry will come back to Ontario."

Granic Allen says she's seen her support grow since the latest televised debate.

"We've had such positive and exceptional momentum and I'm grateful for that. I think people are ready for a very clear, strong voice who will advocate for them, especially in rural ridings and in smaller cities in Ontario and I'm happy to be that voice. I encourage people to exercise their choice and ask themselves really clearly, who do they want as their clear voice?"

The mother of four describes herself as a businesswoman, writer, commentator and public speaker focused on issues affecting women, children and the family.

Granic Allen is running against Christine Elliot, Doug Ford and Caroline Mulroney.

Over the past week, all four candidates have made a stop in Windsor.

A new party leader is expected to be announced March 10.
