Bonavista-Burin-Trinity is a four-way contest again


The battle for the federal riding of Bonavista-Burin-Trinity is a four-way contest once again. TC Media has learned that Mike Windsor will be competing for the Conservative party in the riding of Bonavista-Burin-Trinity in the upcoming federal election.

Windsor, who makes his home in Paradise said that he has ties to the area. 

“I was born in Wesleyville (Bonavista Bay), and for years my grandfather (R.G.Winsor) was a member down there for the Fishermen’s Protective Union. I have always had an interest in the area and worked at Bull Arm for the last two-plus years.”

Windsor is the second candidate selected by the Conservatives. Blair Dale, a Conservative staffer from Ottawa, had been in the running until last week. Dale had been acclaimed as the Conservative candidate on Sept. 11. However, the party revoked his candidacy after a blogger revealed troubling comments Dale had posted on social media regarding women, and abortion. The other candidates in the race for this riding in the Oct. 19 federal election are Liberal incumbent Judy Foote, who has been Liberal MP for the area since 2008; NDP candidate Jenn Brown and Green Party candidate Tyler Colbourne.
