Staff Stor­mont-Dun­das-South Glengarry (SDSG) of­fi­cially has two can­di­dates seek­ing to un­seat in­cum­bent Con­ser­va­tive MPP Jim McDonell in June’s pro­vin­cial elec­tion.

Al­fred res­i­dent Sa­bile Trimm re­cently an­nounced that she will be seek­ing the Lib­er­tar­ian Party nod, join­ing Corn­wall teacher Heather Megill, who is seek­ing the Lib­eral nom­i­na­tion.

Mrs. Trimm, a for­mer re­search sci­en­tist with Mon­treal firm Cer­tara Strate­gic Con­sult­ing, a provider of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal clin­i­cal and reg­u­la­tory strate­gic ser­vices, now op­er­ates Yeo­man Beef in Al­fred with her hus­band, Kevin. The busi­ness is a mem­ber of the Eco­log­i­cal Farm­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of On­tario. Mrs. Trimm’s change in ca­reers has also changed her per­spec­tive, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to the is­sues fac­ing farm­ers and other mem­bers of ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties. “When you live in the big city, you just can’t imag­ine what it’s like,” she says on the Lib­er­tar­ian Party web­site. “Or, at least, I had no idea un­til I hopped over to the other side.” Mrs. Trimm added that she and her team are “go­ing to do our best to get the word out about civil lib­er­ties, prop­erty rights, min­i­mal gov­ern­men­tal in­ter­fer­ence, and democ­racy,” lead­ing up to the June 7 vote.
