As far as destruction of farmland because of sprawl, none of them.
According to the the Midhurst Ratepayers’ Association’s Ms. Sandy Buxton, only Mike Schreinder of the Green Party has even said they oppose it.
Subject: Provincial political partys’ positions on Midhurst Secondary Plan, MSP

Midhurst Ratepayers’ Association
I was wondering if the MRA has asked Tim Hudak, Andrea Horwath and Kathleen Wynne if they would reverse the Special Rule and stop the MSP if elected/re-elected as the next Ontario premier?
I think Springwater Township residents might want to know as we maybe facing a provincial election very soon.
The MRA has approached all party leaders, including Mike Schreiner of the Green Party. Except for the latter, none has revealed their position on the MSP, nor have they committed to rescinding the special rule. To date, of all the local incumbents and potential candidates for Simcoe-Grey and Simcoe-North we’ve contacted, only MPPs Jim Wilson and Garfield Dunlop have publicly come forward to support our efforts. We still hope the other leaders and candidates will recognize the importance of this cause and join us. We are continuing to lobby them.
An exemption to provincial law created by the stroke of a minister’s pen can be reversed likewise
Words of support:
- Mr. Jim Wilson: Former minister, Opposition House Leader since Oct 2011 and MPP continuously since Sept 1990 (23 years).
- Mr. Garfield Dunlop: MPP continuously for 14 years and Warden of Simcoe County, 1998.
