MP says national media got it wrong
On June 24, 24 Conservative members of parliament, including Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton member Jamie Schmale, were identified by CTV News as having attended meetings hosted by four people closely linked to the so-called Freedom Convoy movement. However, Schmale’s office says this just isn’t true.

Local MP Jamie Schmale has already picked his horse in the federal leadership race – the perceived frontrunner, Pierre Poilievre.
Local MP Jamie Schmale has been appointed as the new shadow minister for Indigenous Services in Canada’s 44th Parliament.

If their predictions are correct, Prime Minister Trudeau will remain the nation’s leader, Jamie Schmale will win Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock easily and the classic bellwether riding of Peterborough-Kawartha that has sided with the winning party since 1960 could see a photo-finish with less than one per cent of the total vote separating the winner from the loser.
People’s Party of Canada candidate Alison Davidson and Libertarian candidate Gene Balfour are also vying for voters’ intentions on Monday – and their parties have much in common.
It’s the PPC that gets the most headlines, though, thanks to the pandemic and leader Maxime Bernier’s use of it as a wedge issue. Now home to most of the anti-vax, anti-mask, and no-more-lockdowns movement, the PCC’s Davidson does nothing to dispel this notion when she speaks about vaccines.
