The Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte NDP riding association has announced Sarah Lochhead as the party’s candidate in next month's federal election.

Lochhead is a mother, community builder and dance artist "who is passionate about the role the arts play in both personal and community development," according to a news release issued Saturday morning.
