Given Bruce’s decision not to run in the next election, and the probability of a snap election, possibly this fall, the EDA will immediately begin the process of seeking potential candidates to run for the nomination in Simcoe North. I have been asked to chair the selection committee which will be comprised of three EDA board members and representatives from the riding. There is a page on this website with the current party rules (which may be subject to revision by the party) at About Us->Candidate Selection.

Anyone interested in either running for the nomination, or recommending someone in the community we should reach out to is invited to send an email to the committee at

Thank you

Kirk Farquhar
Chair, CSC and CFO
