Ontario Tories conduct review in leadership election — NewsAlert

Rob Ford: brother of late Toronto mayor is new Progressive Conservative leader

"Following a long, drawn out process to count then review the more than 64,000 electronic ballots cast by party members, Ford narrowly edged out former MPP Christine Elliott, party officials said".

Ford, a one-term Toronto city councillor and businessman, is the brother of the late Rob Ford. In the end, Mr. Ford appeared to have defeated Ms. Elliott by only a small margin.

"Our scrutineers identified entire towns voting in the wrong riding". We're going to be out on the road. "I will stand up for these members and plan to investigate the extent of this discrepancy". Similar claims also led to the exit of the party's president.

"We are all behind our new leader and focused on our common goal of defeating the disastrous Wynne Liberal government", he said.

Elliott has not conceded.

Wynne noted that she and Ford are very different, saying that voters will have a "stark" choice to make in the weeks ahead.

The statement further said she had won both the popular vote and the majority of ridings, and that fewer than 150 points separated her from Ford in the final tally.

The governing Liberals and the New Democrats have panned Ford as a step backwards for the Tories, accusing him of currying favour with the party's socially conservative elements. "Marie during the leadership race, he struck me as really wanting to help Northern Ontario", Romano said. "That is why I entered this race", Elliott said.

The Ontario Provincial Election is scheduled to take place on June 7th, 2018.

Doug Ford has himself been the subject of drug allegations.

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

But he's got a lot of work to do before the election campaign begins.

Gordon claimed Leal attacked him for no reason, and that she is "crazy", though he did not want to pursue any charges against her. A wrongful death lawsuit is not a criminal charge of murder, which requires the burden of proof to be "beyond doubt".

Rickford attributed Ford's success in the campaign to his "populist" approach to governance which resonated with PC party members as opposed to politicians who do what they think is best for people.

Former MPP Christine Elliott, widely seen as the establishment candidate, took four ridings.

"I want to go on record".

"I'm anxious about Kathleen Wynne, not Christine right now", Ford told reporters as he walked in a St. Patrick's Day parade in Toronto earlier Sunday.

"As my dad always said, in business, you aren't getting sales in the office".

Like it or not, Doug Ford is on track to become Ontario's next premier. "To Kathleen Wynne, I say your days are numbered as premier". But Elliott can challenge that through the courts if she chooses. I look forward to working with him. "Kathleen Wynne practices politics instead of policy".

Doug Ford's victory was announced after 10 p.m., without any of the pomp and fanfare that was expected earlier in the day when hundreds packed a hall expecting to celebrate the start of a new and more positive chapter in party history.

However, Hartley Lefton, chair of the PC leadership election organizing committee, said the election results are definitive and provide a clear mandate to Ford.

Ontario PC Leader candidate, mother of 4, Tanya Granic Allen's dream of rooting out all of Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne's wind turbines blighting the Ontario landscape, may be realized at long last.

Wynne's comments were echoed by Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who spoke to CP24 in a phone interview.

"We're going to make sure they build those roads, that they can get to them, because it's going to be great".
