Colin Brown, the nephew of late MP Gord Brown, announced his intention to seek the Conservative Party Nomination in the Riding of Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes.

Brown says he will work to represent his community as the Conservative Party Candidate in the upcoming by-election.

In a release he said, “I want to build on the legacy left by my uncle, who served this community for over 20 years.” He added, “I will be a strong voice for our community and work hard to earn your support."

Brown was born and raised in Gananoque and says he understands the challenges faced by local residents and business owners. He will utilize his extensive business and political experience to advance local issues at the federal level. This experience includes his recent work on the Ontario PC election campaign.

Colin’s priorities for the local community include: keeping taxes low and fostering a business friendly environment; investing in vital infrastructure for the region; and, continuing the work of his uncle in supporting Thalidomide survivors.

Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark says “Colin gained tremendous experience as part of a tour team that helped deliver a resounding victory for Doug Ford and the Ontario PCs on June 7th.”

He added, “Politics are part of the Brown family tradition and Colin’s intelligence, work ethic and hands-on experience in helping organize and deliver a winning campaign make him an impressive candidate.”

Premier-elect Doug Ford also supports Brown, saying he is confident that he will be an effective voice for this community.
