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.
