Fedeli enters race for PC leadership

Watch above: Alan Carter talks to Vic Fedeli about his leadership bid. 

TORONTO – PC Finance Critic Vic Fedeli has thrown his name into the race to replace Tim Hudak as leader of Ontario’s Progressive Conservative party.

Fedeli made the announcement Wednesday morning during a press conference at the Exchange Tower on King Street.

Hudak stepped down as leader of the Progressive Conservative party in June after the Kathleen Wynne Liberals won a majority of seats at Queen’s Park.

The campaign was plagued by criticism about the math used to formulate Hudak’s signature jobs plan – The Million Jobs Plan. But Wednesday, Fedeli refused to talk about the party’s failings in past elections.

Fedeli  is up against Christine Elliott, the MPP for Whitby-Oshawa and widow of Jim Flaherty, who was the first to enter the leadership race.
