    Honourable Steven Crawford,
    Congratulations on your win to be our new MPP.
    I helped in your campaign office a little, and was so thankful for your win.
    I would like though, in the near future that you would demand that the bubble zone law, put in place by the Liberals, be demolished, rescinded! It is stopping freedom of speech, and blocking the ability of people to hear the truth in love.

      Hi Brenda,
      Please note that MPP Crawford does not necessarily read all comments. I would suggest that you reach out to him directly.

      Have a great day!

    Congratulations are in order for Stephen Crawford and for all candidates who participated in the democratic process — the voter turnout was very high throughout Ontario.

    The upcoming municipal elections, provide another opportunity for an increased voter turnout — and for change.

    Dear Mr.Craford,
    I am not a leftie or other such abomination.. I am a snior citizen, who was bewildered by the inanedecisions of your leader, buck a beer ! and the attack on Toronot City Council… The only dysfunction I eve noticed at the many sessions I attended was started by the Ford brothers. I remember the day poor Pam McConnell was thrown to the floor.There are many good people in the PC party !
