Master electrician replaces Dave Brister, former councillor who was ousted over right-to-work stance

Ontario's Progressive Conservatives have nominated their candidate in the Essex riding.

Ray Cecile will replace Dave Brister, who was cut loose earlier this year when he spoke out against party leader Tim Hudak's right-to-work policy.

Cecile is a master electrician who lives in Lakeshore with his wife and two kids.

An election is possible later this spring, if the minority Liberal government's budget is not approved by the legislature.
