Brother of Rob Ford Elected to Lead Conservatives in Ontario

Brother of Rob Ford Elected to Lead Conservatives in Ontario

Ford, Mulroney and Granic Allen have pushed for the party to extend the leadership race by a week in order to ensure all members can participate.

Elliott, who visited Sault Ste. Randy Ford, Doug's brother, later said that he could not confirm Ford had won.

Ford made little mention of the review or the delays in his victory speech, focusing instead on the June election in which he will now face Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne.

Some of Brown's rivals initially denounced his candidacy, calling it a distraction, but then stepped back to focus on their own campaigns.

Elliott responded that an independent panel selected her for the job and the suggestion that it was a patronage appointment from Wynne was ridiculous.

"We have a lot to do in a short amount of time", Ford said late Saturday in his acceptance speech.

Changing Party Policies: All four candidates have pledged to scrap a proposed carbon tax that formed a key pillar of the party's election platform under Brow.

"When he was in Sault Ste".

"This was pretty much the most mishandled party executive communication exercise I've ever witnessed on television", she said.

Romano said he believes Ford is committed to making Northern Ontario stronger and assisting with its growth.

EU Seeks Clarity on Trump Tariffs
Malmstrom told reporters the European Union was ready to complain to the World Trade Organisation, and retaliate within 90 days. Beijing vowed to "firmly defend its legitimate rights and interests". "This is not a trade negotiation", Katainen said.

The Tories used preferential ballots and a system of points assigned by ridings to calculate results.

"Ultimately what I can assure is a continued fair election, an accurate result, and a new leader who will lead us into the next election and who will win the next election for the Ontario PC Party", Lefton concluded.

The survey, which was conducted between March 1 to 8 and polled 18,308 members of the Ontario PC Party, found that when calculating for points per riding, Elliott would get 35.2 per cent on the first ballot, and Ford would garner 34.9 per cent.

Lefton said a review was underway and told the crowd to leave the hall and go home since the venue was needed for another event.

A lawyer even filed a request for a court injunction the day before the leadership convention seeking to delay the decision by a week to give more members a chance to receive their documents and cast a ballot, but a judge dismissed the request.

The party, which has been leading in polls to unseat the ruling Liberals, was thrown into chaos in January after party chief Patrick Brown resigned following accusations of sexual misconduct.

"That is less than half of the membership", Radnoff said.

February 11: Brown publishes the first of several Facebook posts in which he vows to clear his name and questions the credibility of the women who brought allegations against him.

Gone are the days when after a first ballot, candidates would go around negotiating with delegates in other camps to try and woo their support, adding to the drama and the excitement of a leadership race.

During the upcoming provincial election, less than three months away, you won't be able to see a sea of red hats emblazoned with the words, "Make America Great Again", as President Trump saw again in Pennsylvania last night, because it will be a sea of blue hats, marked with the words, "Make Ontario Sane Again".
