Tim Hudak comes by the office

Our office in downtown Ottawa today hosted potential Ontario PC leadership candidate Tim Hudak for a meet and greet with friends and colleagues on Parliament Hill today. Many thanks to Dimitri Pantazopoulos and Phil von Finkenstein for coordinating and to Chris Froggatt for tieing it all together.

Hudak spoke about returning Ontario to a clear sense of conservatism and will be attending the Manning Centre conference this weekend.

On the developing news front, I’ve learned that Hudak is receiving the endorsement of Rob Nicholson, the federal minister of Justice. Does Froggatt’s involvement with today’s event mean that endorsement from his boss John Baird will follow?

The Manning Centre is hosting a reception tonight prior to our conference and I can confirm that Tim Hudak, Christine Elliott, Randy Hillier and Peter van Loan will be in attendence. The Manning Centre conference will be the first significant venue for leadership pre-campaigning.

  1. Tim Hudak would be a great leader. I think he's fantastic, although there are several other excellent possibilities as well.

    The main thing is that small c conservatives now feel that they might have a voice.

  2. At a loss for words? Is having an office in downtown Ottawa something unique? Is it allowed? Do tell us.

  3. Many of us are more familiar with federal stalwart Peter Van Loan than some of the others. Some tend not to pay so much attention to the provincial House until election time, especially when the party is in Opposition.

    There are many excellent choices. John Yakabuski is consulting his constituents to see if he has support to enter the race.

  4. Tim Hudak's election as leader could ensure the Tories stay in opposition will endure for many more elections. He will be depicted as a Harris acolyte and forever shunned.

  5. A BC'ER IN — TORONTO –?

    Whew. That's a relief. Another Liberal moved to Toronto from B.C. With any luck at all a whole passel of these Libs will be u-hauling out of here for the very social pastures of that ugly old TO –pronto!
