Provincial election debating and wooing has begun

The Oct. 6 provincial election is officially under way as Premier Dalton McGuinty met formally with Ontario Lt.-Gov. David Onley Wednesday to dissolve his government and officially drop the writ for the 40th general election.
Premier McGuinty (Liberal) is going for a three-peat, against leadership newcomers Tim Hudak (Conservative), Andrea Howarth (NDP) and Mike Schreiner, (Green).
Locally, five candidates have stepped up to the plate: incumbent Leona Dombrowsky (Liberal); Todd Smith (Conservative); Treat Hull (Green); Neal Ford (Family Coalition) and Sherry Hayes (NDP).

Treat Hull officially kicked-off his Green Party Campaign Wednesday in Picton before an audience expressing interest in his work over the weekend to investigate pre-construction activity under way at the proposed Ostrander Point wind farm.

Liberal candidate Leona Dombrowsky was also in Picton Wednesday afternoon, invited to spend part of the first official day of the campaign helping neighbours in the Low Street area to post lawn signs. She is shown above with Picton residents Maureen Finnegan and Bill Edwards.

PC candidate Todd Smith opened his campaign office in Belleville Wednesday and will host a visit from party leader Tim Hudak Thursday afternoon in Belleville.
