Outlines his Commitment to get the People’s Guarantee Accomplished in His First Mandate, or He Won’t Seek a Second
Patrick Brown is the Leader of the Ontario PC Party and is the Ontario PC candidate for Barrie Springwater Oro Medonte.
He was elected as Leader of the Ontario PC Party in May 2015, and MPP for Simcoe North in September 2015.
Patrick studied political science at the University of Toronto before earning his law degree from the University of Windsor.
Patrick has dedicated his life to public service. He was first elected at the age of 22 to Barrie City Council. Patrick then ran for the Conservative Party of Canada, defeating a Liberal cabinet minister to become the MP for Barrie, where he served for nine years.
He is active in his community and has helped to raise nearly $2 million dollars for local hospitals and charities.
What drives Patrick to serve is his optimism that Ontario can once again be the economic engine of the country, and he can make life more affordable for families who want to pay less and get ahead.
