Christine Elliott also announced her intention to run for PC Party leader of Ontario. I sat down with Elliott via video conference (Ottawa-Toronto) to chat about the race, her policies and her bid for the job.

    No, it’s Whitby-Oshawa. She was originally elected in Whitby-Ajax in 2006, but the redistribution in 2007 divided that riding between Whitby-Oshawa and Ajax-Pickering.

    This is the first time I've seen her interviewed and I think she is great. She comes across as serious and thoughtful.

    Hmmm… you're right. She's gotta change the meta tags on her site so Googlers aren't confused.

    Great work Stephen, will you be doing the same for Frank Klees and Randy Hillier?

  • http://www.stephentaylor.ca Stephen Taylor

    Yes. I've confirmed with Hillier. Still working on getting in touch with Klees.

    I find Elliot's entry into the leadership race quite assumptive given her inexperience. She is still wet behind the ears in the political field, past small business and mental health experience qualify her for some City counsel, or the back benches. Christine's narcisisstic slam at former Harris supporters is duly noted, as is her centre, left fence riding. Has not one conservative noticed, when we pick leftist leadership, Ontario will go with the real thing, a Liberal. Elliot is arrogantly trying to ride upon her husband's office and popularity. No thanks! Time Hudak has proven his metal, actually has answers, instead of ideas and is not a closet liberal!.

    I think it quite assumptive that a politician still wet behind the ears would run in a leadership race with so little experience. The narcisism is evident through her slams at former Harris supporters, of which her husband Jim was one. If indeed she is looking for support, her first act was a poor one. Elliot worked with in the mental health field, good, nice, but this only qualifies you as a Liberal, not a Leadership candidate. Advice, step out of the way and let leadership lead, Tim Hudak has the experience and actual ideas upon job creation, not some coattail ride upon a spouses popularity. Thanks, Christine, but even the conflict in your own household on political issues, questions your ability in politics.
