SOUTH DUNDAS – About 200 supporters and well-wishers came out to Stone Crop Acres Vineyard in South Dundas as Conservative Party of Canada candidate Eric Duncan kicked off his election campaign.
Speakers at the crowded event included current Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry Member of Parliament Guy Lauzon, MPP Jim McDonell, North Dundas mayor Tony Fraser, and North Dundas deputy-mayor Al Armstrong.
Duncan was acclaimed to the CPC nomination early this spring, replacing Lauzon who is retiring after 15 years as MP.
While the election has not formally been called, under Canada Elections Act, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has until September 15th to call an election. Voters head to the polls October 21st.
