Thompson launches campaign


Glammis native Allan Thompson launched his bid for the Liberal nomination in the Riding of Huron-Bruce Wednesday evening at the King’s Pearl Pub and Eatery in Tiverton.


Dorne Fitzsimmons, who spent many years on the Village of Tiverton council, introduced Thompson to the Liberal-leaning crowd. Fitzsimmons noted there were a number of ex politicians in the room, including Paul Steckle, Murray Elston and Gord Thompson (Allan’s brother).


Allan Thompson asked those in attendance to support his bid for nomination by buying a Liberal membership and then attending and voting for him at the nomination.


No date has been set for the nomination meeting, but it’s likely this fall.
