Ontario PCs to endorse open leadership campaign Wednesday: Insiders

Ontario’s Progressive Conservative Party, staggered by sexual impropriety allegations and the resignation of its leader and president, expects Wednesday to address its problematic leadership vacuum, senior insiders told the Toronto Sun.

The party executive intends, sources said, to support an open leadership campaign that could come as early as March 10 or 11, and no later than March 24, when rank-and-file conservatives will elect a new leader to replace Patrick Brown.

Can they still win? A Ford victory would guarantee the ruling class put their votes behind Wynne and or Haworth. A Mulroney win may persuade that same predator union/rentseeker class to park some votes with her as she’s one of their kind.
