Former Conservative MP Susan Truppe is throwing her hat back into the ring, this time in provincial politics.

Truppe announced Friday, November 4th, that she is seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination in London North Centre. She spent four years representing the federal version of that riding, until she was defeated by Liberal Peter Fragiskatos in last fall’s election. During her time as an MP, she served as the Parliamentary Secretary for the Status of Women as well as serving on the Standing Committee on the Status of Women and the Special Committee on Violence Against Indigenous Women.

The London North Centre riding she seeks has been held by MPP and Deputy Premier Deb Mathews since 2003. Truppe has identified high hydro rates under the governing Liberals as a top priority for her.

The 2018 provincial election will take place on or before June 7, 2018.
