The cubicles have been erected, the phones have been installed, and on Tuesday Breuce-Grey- Owen Sound PC candidate Bill Walker officially opened his campaign office in Owen Sound.
Nearly 50 supporters – many clad in Tory blue – turned out for the event.
“We’re 59 days away…not that I’m counting,” Walker told the gathering to kick-off his brief speech.
“For the past few months I’ve been travelling this great riding, from Holstein to Hanover and up the Bruce Peninsula, and I’m hearing more and more about the need for change,” Walker said. “Rural Ontario is tired of getting nickel-and-dimed by Queen’s Park. Our people are concerned about the rampant tax hikes, the skyrocketing home heating bills, and the pending losses of good jobs… they’re worried about the future of our hospitals, schools and jails.”
Prior to the official opening, Walker told The Independent that he feels he is the right candidate to replace the retiring Bill Murdoch who has held the seat for the PC party for 20 years.
“I think it’s big boots to fill when it’s a guy like Bill Murdoch, but we’ve always had a proud tradition of standing up for the people, and that’s what I plan to continue to do,” said Walker.
Walker also said that he doesn’t think that his style of representation would be much different than Murdoch.
“At the end of the day I think that what Bill has done a great job of is making sure that the voice of the people of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound is heard, and I plan on doing exactly the same. How I approach it, and our delivery might be different, but the commitment to the people is exactly the same.”
Though it is still early, Walker says that his campaign team is coming together and he is receiving many phone calls from supporters wanting to volunteer their time and services to the campaign.
Walker has already been knocking on doors and attending public events, and he said that it is clear what issues are on the minds of voters.
“Certainly taxes, hydro, home heating bills, and wind turbines are certainly going to be an issue, I’m hearing that at the doors a fair bit. And the general economy overall is a big thing for people as well.”
He also says he is hearing from voters that it is time for a change in government at Queen’s Park.
“I’ve been banging on doors and what I am hearing from people is that it is time for a change,” said Walker, “They are tired of where we’re going, they don’t see any change that’s going to happen unless they do change government, and that is what most people are saying – he’s had his eight years, he hasn’t done the job and it’s time for somebody new.”
That same message was delivered to supporters prior to the ribbon cutting to officially open the campaign office.
“In a little less than two months you’ll be faced with a choice between surprise tax hikes, failed energy experiments, bloated bureaucracies or responsible governance and respect for sensible local decisions,” he said. “Today I invite all of you, your family, friends, and neighbours, to join me and help to deliver that change on October 6.”
The Walker campaign headquarters is located at 810 10th Street West in Owen Sound.
