Garfield Dunlop is taking another crack at politics. After ceding his Simcoe North seat to Patrick Brown back in 2015, the long serving politician is now vying to be the candidate for the Barrie-Springwater-Oro Medonte riding on behalf of the PC party. Dunlop tells our newsroom it has been a bumpy road getting here, but believes the party now has a clear path.
Adding to that, Dunlop says he may be the one to help build bridges within the party.
Dunlop had previously served as MPP for Simcoe-North from 1999 until he stepped aside. His daughter Jill Dunlop is running for the PC party in his former riding.
