Side-by-Side Candidate Comparison in the Riding of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex

Rating Comments

Keith gave perfect pro-life answers in his response to CLC's questionnaire in anticipation of the by-election taking place in the provincial riding of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex in 2024.

In the 2022 Ontario Provincial Election, Keith ran in the riding of Sarnia-Lambton and gave mostly good answers to CLC's election survey at the time, but did not answer a key question pertaining to abortion. For this reason, we have deemed him to be 'educable', but not pro-life, during that election cycle.

Steve Pinsonneault is the PC Party of Ontario candidate in the 2024 by-election in the provincial riding of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex. The by-election was necessitated by the resignation in September 2023 of longtime PC MPP and cabinet member Monte McNaughton.

In August 2023, as a member of Chatham-Kent municipal council, Mr. Pinsonneault voted to punish fellow councillor Rhonda Jubenville over her common-sense Motion to eliminate favouritism in the flying of flags on municpal property. Jubenville was punished by having three months' worth of her salary taken away.
