Equine veterinarian and former Standardbred racehorse breeder Patrick Meyers has announced that he is hoping to become the Ontario PC Party’s nominee for Guelph in the upcoming provincial election.

According to an article by Guelph Today, Meyers is one of three candidates – including Ray Ferraro, a former city councillor – that is hoping to land the nomination. Voting for the candidates is scheduled to take place after the party's leadership convention. The leadership convention will take place on Saturday, March 10. No date has been set, at this time, for the local vote.

Meyers is a 1984 graduate of the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College. In addition to having run his breeding operation – Emerald Ridge Farm, in Rockwood, Ont. – and working at the Equine Research Centre at University of Guelph, Meyers also practiced in Kempville and Cambridge.

“I am not going to try and fool anybody by telling them I have lots of experience in politics — take me as I am. I am honest, I have integrity, I am principled and I will do the best possible job for the constituency of Guelph,” Meyers was quoted as saying.
