The race to replace Muskoka-Parry Sound MP Tony Clement is on.
Huntsville Mayor Scott Aitchison has already announced his desire to become the riding’s Federal Conservative candidate - now he has an opponent in the race for the seat.
On her website, Meghan Shannon has announced she too will be seeking the nomination for the riding.
Shannon, who grew up in Mactier, recently ran for the Conservative nomination in Waterloo, but lost to Jerry Zhang on April 2nd.
Clement, who was removed from the Conservative caucus after the sexting scandal, currently sits as an independent and says he will not be seeking re-election in October
