Voters in Parry Sound-Muskoka have the chance to speak with the Green Party of Ontario’s leader.

MPP Mike Schreiner will be holding a town hall in Bracebridge. Schreiner, who represents the riding of Guelph at Queen’s Park, is the first-ever Green MPP in the province. His first private member’s bill to protect an important drinking water source passed second reading with unanimous support.

At the town hall, Schreiner will give an update on current issues before the legislature and respond to questions from the audience.

According to Arleigh Luckett, President of the local GPO Constituency Association, “The town hall is open to the public. Interested high school students are encouraged to attend. We are looking forward to this opportunity for residents of Parry Sound-Muskoka to hear from and be heard by a sitting MPP.”

Schreiner is no stranger to informal meetings with voters like this as he regularly holds meet-ups at coffee shops and town halls with his constituents in Guelph. As the leader of the Greens he’s interested in hearing from people from across the province.

Parry Sound-Muskoka actually had the second highest result for the GPO in the 2018 election with candidate Matt Richter. Going into election night last year one poll had him in second place. Richter, however, ended up coming in third, right behind NDP candidate Erin Horvath, with less than 1,000 votes separating the two.

The town hall with Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner is happening this Friday at the Lions Hall, 325 Fraserburg Road, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm.
