Defeated Ontario PC candidate calls for war on social conservatives after losing race

OTTAWA, November 18, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A Progressive Conservative candidate has called for war on social conservatives in the party a day after his crushing defeat in Thursday’s Ottawa-Vanier byelection.

André Marin said Friday that PC leader Patrick Brown had to put social conservatives “in their place,” alleging they constitute “a threat to the party,” reported the Ottawa Citizen.

“If they start calling some of the shots, I think you’ll see a very fast erosion in the popularity of the Progressive Conservative party,” Marin said.
