The MP for Perth-Wellington is making sure our area is on the radar in Ottawa.

Two of the favourites in the federal Conservative leadership race to replace Andrew Scheer, Peter Mackay and Erin O’Toole, have visited Stratford over the last several months to take in what the city has to offer.

John Nater says it’s always a great pleasure to bring colleagues to the area.

He says one of his motivations as a Member of Parliament is to promote our region.

“So any time I’m able to bring people like Erin, like Peter, to our community and show them some of the great cultural, agricultural and manufacturing industries we have.”

All interested candidates for the PC leadership must meet the applicant requirements by February 27th.
