If Ontario’s Greens break through to elect their first legislator this spring, it’ll be in a riding like Ottawa Centre, their leader Mike Schreiner said on a pre-election swing through Eastern Ontario Monday.

“The ridings where we feel the strongest are ones held by a Liberal, or one of the new ones where there’s no incumbent,” he said. “And then if it has a university community … where there’s a strong sense of community and where there’s a strong local business presence. They really like the Green party’s approach to re-localizing the economy, supporting local businesses, supporting family businesses and entrepreneurship.”
