The Barrie Examiner - - NEWS -

(STAFF) - The field just got a lit­tle thin­ner for the Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive nom­i­na­tion in On­tario’s Barrie-In­n­is­fil rid­ing for the up­com­ing elec­tion.

Devin Scully an­nounced Tues­day morn­ing he is with­draw­ing, leav­ing the race to Shawn Bubel and Lawrence Vin­dum.

“The fact is, that af­ter months of cam­paign­ing, the num­bers aren’t where they need to be to have a re­al­is­tic shot at se­cur­ing the nom­i­na­tion,” Scully said.

He thanked his vol­un­teers, donors, sup­port­ers and team mem­bers for their ef­forts.

The next On­tario elec­tion is sched­uled for June, 2018.

Lib­eral Barrie MPP Ann Hog­garth was elected in 2014.

The city will be split into two rid­ings for the next pro­vin­cial elec­tion, as it was for the last fed­eral elec­tion.

Pa­trick Brown, MPP for Sim­coe North and PC leader, has ac­cepted the nom­i­na­tion for the Barrie Spring­wa­ter-Oro-Me­donte rid­ing in next year’s elec­tion.
