It's time for

"Arthur Evans, retiring Simcoe-Centre MPP said Thursday night he was leaving politics because "we should have new blood". He was speaking at an all-candidates meeting held in Sir William Osler School by the Bradford and West Gwillimbury Progressive Conservative Riding Association. Three contestants for the nomination in Simcoe-centre spoke after Mr. Evans reminisced about his last 16 years at Queen's Park. Evans described his various duties, told a joke about Stuart Smith, and promised the nominees that the winner would have all his support and advice."

A long tradition of newspapering

"Stewart Scott McKenzie, a man who was a strong and active force in Bradford for more than 35 years as a politician and publisher for the Bradford Witness and South Simcoe News, died last week in York County Hospital in Newmarket, last Thursday following a short illness. Mr. McKenzie was born in the Village of Paisley in Bruce County where he grew up and was educated. The former publisher of the Witness has a long tradition in newspapering and was one of four sons born to a former publisher of the Paisley Advocate. Mr. McKenzie served in the Canadian Army during World War I. When he returned after the war he resumed his newspaper career and joined the production department of the old Detroit Times. In 1931, he and his wife Ina, also a native of Paisley, moved to Bradford and purchased the Bradford Witness and South Simcoe News from Publisher O.M. Seim. That began a career in this town that stretched over 35 years until the couple retired in 1968 following the sale of the Witness to Gerry and Nona Barker. Funeral services for the man who devoted so much of his life to his community were held on Saturday morning in the chapel of the Lathangue and Skwarchuk Funeral Home on Simcoe Street, in Bradford."

Fred Cook

"Deputy Reeve Fred Cook has decided to run for council in this year's election. 'I've served for 10 or 12 years as deputy reeve. I think it's time to let someone else have a shot at it, but I'd still like to serve on council,' said Mr. Cook. Born and raised in Bradford, the town has been the centre of the candidate's whole life. 'I have a natural interest in the developments affecting the future of the town. It's pretty certain we are going to grow unless growth is restricted by the government. I'm not against growth, but I think it's essential we don't grow too fast or too soon. As we grow, we must set up and maintain the essentials for growth, from our schools to our sewers,' said Cook. Cook said his greatest interest, outside his work and politics, has been Christian education. In 1962, he received a national citation for Christian education by a Canadian from the department of Christian Education from the Canadian Council of Churches. He has also served as a lay reader in the Anglican Church since 1934."

Davis announces Evans' appointment to MTC post

"Last week, Ontario Premier William Davis appointed Simcoe Centre MPP Art Evans, parliamentary assistant to the minister of transportation and communications, Jim Snow. Mr. Evans said Friday that he was pleased with the appointment and was looking forward to his new duties. In the past Evans has been involved in the energy field and was on the Board of Directors of Ontario Hydro for a number of years."

Simcoe Centre MPP D. Arthur Evans

"To save 32 million acres of food-growing land is to interfere with the delicate buyer and seller relationships of the marketplace. Massive state intervention in the marketplace does guarantee absolutely that the productive capacity of Ontario's farmers will be severely restricted by a new host of governmental restrictions and directives. If you examine the food growing capacity of certain totalitarian nations such as the Soviet Union, the state of that country's agriculture is nothing short of national disaster."
