(Queen’s Park) – Doug Ford was elected Leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party by the Party’s membership on March 10th.
The following is a comment by Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott:
Our Party’s members have voted, and Doug Ford has been elected Leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. I accept the result, and I am prepared to work with him, along with all of my colleagues in the Ontario Legislature.
I agree with Doug Ford that Ontario needs to be “open for business.” I agree that wasteful government spending needs to stop. I agree that elected representatives need to be accountable to the people they serve.
Christine Elliott has indicated she will run for a seat in the coming provincial election. I welcome that news.
As always, my priorities are the needs and concerns of the people of our Riding of Wellington-Halton Hills.
However, Ontario needs a change of Government. The mismanagement, dishonesty and scandals of the Liberals must be brought to an end. Our Party needs to unite behind our leadership and offer the people of Ontario the Government they deserve.
