NORTH BAY — Trevor Holliday, leader of the Northern Ontario Party, has been accused of misconduct.
The allegation come from fellow NOP member Beverly Farnham, who Friday morning, publicly accused Holliday of actually doing something meaningful for once.
“I’ve known Mr. Holliday for almost five years now,” says Farnham. “And Trevor’s public support for Vic Fedeli against the accusations leveled against him shocked me. I believe it may be the first time I’ve ever seen Trevor do something semi-important.”
Holliday, who captured 0.10% of the vote in the 2018 provincial election, has been the leader of the Northern Ontario Party since 2016.
“I mean usually he just goes on about Northern Ontario this and Northern Ontario that. Throw in a vague threat about separating from Southern Ontario and you’ve got the usual ‘Holliday sauce.'”
“But definitively taking a side publicly to support someone? That’s not Trevor, and that’s not the NOP way.”
However, Farnham does admit Holliday’s “radical” attempt at being an actual part of serious provincial politics might pay off.
“If Fedeli gets cleared, then there might be some supporters who will vote for Trevor next election,” says Farnham. “And if they do, well – 0.12%, here we come!”
