One of the shortest leadership campaigns in Ontario political history is coming to an end, but not without it’s fair share of drama.
Late last night in a Toronto courtroom, a judge rejected an injunction to extend the voting period for another week, meaning the new leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party will be selected Saturday afternoon.
The four main candidates are:
- Doug Ford – brother of the late former Mayor of Toronto Rob Ford and former Toronto City Councillor
- Caroline Mulroney – a lawyer and daughter of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney
- Christine Elliott – former MP for Whitby-Ajax
- Tanya Granic-Allen – Parental rights advocate.
The race was launched after former party leader Patrick Brown resigned in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations back in January.
A leader will be chosen at 1pm ET/12pm CT.
