Liberal Candidate Brenda Rhodes called out incumbent Norm Miller for not doing enough to help local hospitals get the funding they need at last night's All Candidates Forum in Huntsville.  The statement elicited chuckles from some in the audience, in half full theatre.
The NDP's candidate reminded voters that a vote for Miller was really a vote for Doug Ford, while Matt Richter of the Green Party kept to his message about how his party would do politics differently.
Miller shot back at the Liberal record saying the McGuinty/Wynne government designed their policies for urban Toronto, but they don't work in Parry Sound Muskoka.   He reminded Rhodes that on several occasions he had to go the Liberal Minister of Health asking for money for Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare and came back with a cheque to offset the organization's running deficit.
