The coincidence is that his uncle, Steve, also of Thornlea, is registered as a member of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario's government relations committee and is a registered lobbyist under registration number 816931 - 290685.
Steve Runnels claims he had nothing to do with this nice little windfall for his nephew.
"William Runnalls is my nephew and I do not have any involvement in his operation," he wrote in an e-mail to colleague Ian Cumming.
"I have never been involved in lobbying in regards to the Heritage fund (which provided the $107,000 grant) at any level," he wrote.
See why I find it an amazing coincidence?
