We have lots of news this issue. First, we'd like to announce Candice Kei as our new GTA Tory partner. Candice brings work experience at the federal and provincial levels of government and campaign experience to GTA Tory. We would like to thank Paul Mitassov for his work as one of the co-founders and partners over the last ten months. He was an instrumental part in getting GTA Tory off the ground. Paul will be staying on as our official legal advisor.

In addition, we would like to give a special shout out to Daniel Dickin for starting up Ottawa Conservatives, a site that is similar to ours featuring events in and around the nation's capital. It is great to see that the GTA Tory concept is being applied in other regions of the province! 

A lot of great events are featured in this issue. If your candidate of choice's event(s) aren't featured here, please submit them on

A early Happy Easter/Passover from all of us at GTA Tory!
