“I still have things I want to accomplish, and I still have the drive,” she told a crowd of more than 100 supporters, which included Huron-Bruce MP Ben Lobb, as well as retiring MPPs Randy Pettapiece (Perth-Wellington), and Bill Walker (Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound).

“I am as revved up as I was for the very first campaign,” she said, adding that she has been honoured to represent the riding since 2011. “We have a strong team and we’re all ready to go!”

In making the introduction, campaign manager Anita Snobelen reminded supporters that Lisa is “deeply committed to her rural ancestry. She has a long history as an active and engaged citizen,” she said. “And she has worked closely with many of the Huron-Bruce agriculture and community organizations.”

MP Lobb told the crowd that “Huron-Bruce is lucky to have Lisa. She is a hard fighter who never gives up and never stops.” After serving as the Minister of Education and then Minister of Government and Consumer Services, Lisa was appointed Ontario’s 40th Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs by Premier Doug Ford on June 18, 2021.

In addition to her parliamentary roles, Lisa is honoured to represent Ontario as Chair for Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians—Canada Region.

She has also been successful in having three pieces of legislation proclaimed by the Lieutenant Governor: ‘Safe and Supportive Classrooms’, ‘Trust is Real Estate Services’ and ‘Consumer Protection’.

Lisa was born and raised near Wingham in Huron County, but now calls Bruce County home as she lives near Teeswater on a farm that has been in her husband’s family for 120 years.

Lisa’s campaign office is located at 164 Josephine St. in Wingham (the same location as in 2018). Lisa can be reached by phone: 519-357-1038 or email:
