Progressive Conservative MPP Norm Sterling should stop dragging the Ontario Landowners Association into his political battles, says the group’s president. “Mr. Sterling should understand that the OLA is a non-partisan group that is dedicating to protecting property rights,” says Deb Madill. “We are not a political party. We care about ideas not party labels.”
Madill made the comments after media reports indicated Sterling, who is in a nomination battle, talked about MPPs running in the next provincial election as “Ontario Landowner” candidates.
And here is the Landowners' former president Jack MacLaren from last year, putting the lie to Ms. Madill's words:
“The (OLA) are very definitely going to get involved in pursuing political positions in the 2011 election.”
