Doug Ford suggests enema for ailing Ontario PCs
TORONTO – The Progressive Conservatives will soon be looking for a new leader and Doug Ford isn’t ruling anything out.
“The doors always open,” he told reporters at city hall Friday morning. “I can’t answer that right now.”
Ford had previously mused about leaving city hall for Queen’s Park but didn’t seek a nomination in the last election.
He did however offer some medical advice to cure the PC’s ailments less than 24 hours after a stunning loss to Kathleen Wynne’s liberals.
“I think the PC party needs an enema from top to bottom,” he said.
Wynne led the Liberals to a majority government in Thursday’s general election, while Tim Hudak’s Progressive Conservatives lost seats, forcing Hudak to announce he is resigning as leader.

Wynne’s victory, despite ongoing scandals incolving MaRS, deleted emails and the cancelled gas plants may in fact mean good things for Rob Ford, his brother said.
“It means people in Ontario are willing to give second chances,” he said.
The mayor has been at a treatment facility near Muskoka since early in May but plans on re-entering the mayoral campaign in July.
