St. Catharines city council candidate launches petition to save election race for Niagara regional chair

Karrie Porter, a candidate for St. Catharines city council in Ward 4- St. Patrick’s has launched a petition calling on Queen’s park to restore the election for Niagara Regional Chair that was abruptly cancelled this morning by Premier Doug Ford.

“Stripping our right to vote for our Niagara Regional Chair in the middle of an election campaign, without notice or consultation, is an affront to local democracy” said Porter.

“I’m launching this petition campaign to demonstrate to the provincial government that the people of Niagara want to directly elect their Regional Chair,” she added.

The petition is available to be signed on Porter’s website at: https://www.karrieporter.ca/regional_election
