Conservative leader Patrick Brown has been nominated as the candidate for the riding of Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte.
The current Barrie riding, which encompasses only the city itself, was taken by Liberal Ann Hoggarth in the 2014 election.
The riding has since been separated into Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte and Barrie-Innisfil.
The election is supposed to be held sometime before early June.
