The following is a statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of April Jeffs as the Ontario PC candidate for Niagara Centre:

 “I congratulate April on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Niagara Centre.

Wainfleet Mayor April Jeffs to run as Tory candidate in Niagara Centre Riding in 2018 Ontario election. The seat is currently held by NDP Cindy Forster

  “April brings a breadth of experience to our Ontario PC team. She is a two-term Mayor and Regional Councillor for the Township of Wainfleet, and a small business owner of 16 years. April knows firsthand the challenges the Liberal government’s policies have had on rural Ontario and her constituents. 

 “A lifelong resident of Niagara Region, April is passionate about her community and is active in organizations such as the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority and the Niagara Children’s Centre. I am confident that April will be a strong voice for the residents of Niagara Centre at Queen’s Park.

 “After 14 years in power, life is harder with the Liberals. Ontario families are working hard, paying more, and getting less. Ontario deserves better.  

 “In Niagara Centre and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard for a better future. I look forward to working with April as part of our Ontario PC team as we share our positive message of change.”

In October 2016, April Jeffs was one of 10 Niagara regional councillors on the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s board to vote ‘Yes’ for hiring former NPCA CAO Carmen D’Angelo as Niagara Region’s CAO. The only regional councillor sitting on the NPCA board who did not vote in favour of D’Angelo’s hiring was Linclon’s Bil Hodgson.

  1. As I understand it April Jeff’s was also on the committee that hired Carmen D’Angelo from the Board of the NPCA into the position of CAO of the NPCA. It’s time for ethical politics in Niagara, April Jeffs does not seem to have the track record in her favour.


  2. One of the board members is running for the Ontario PC party and is quoted saying – “I want to make it easier for the small and medium businesses.’
    So why does the board the candidate sits on let the NPCA bring citizens that try to open a business (Mark Barnfield and others) to court and let them spend thousands of dollars on court fees and, just down the street, a big companies can fill in all the wetland?
    The NPCA board the candidate sits on is suing a citzen.
    The PC candidate can’t even help citizens at a lower level of government (should be at the front of the line for the audit of NPCA and drop lawsuit). I hope you vote for someone that will help and support the average citizen.
