BROCKVILLE – Michael Barrett is the federal Conservative candidate for Leeds-Grenville, Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes.
Barrett, 34, won on the fourth ballot during the nomination vote on Saturday (Aug. 11) afternoon at the Brockville Memorial Center.
He will represent the PCs in an upcoming by-election to fill the seat after MP Gord Brown died suddenly of a heart attack in May.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has to set a by-election date by the end of October.
