Christine Elliott has received the endorsement of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell in her bid for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.

"Christine brings great wisdom and a tremendous wealth of experience to the position, including being an MPP for nine years, our Deputy Leader, a professional lawyer and a tireless community advocate," says Mr. McDonell. Meanwhile, his federal counterpart, Guy Lauzon, is backing Caroline Mulroney in the race where Patrick Brown is trying to regain the post he left only about a month ago. Doug Ford and Tanya Granic Allen are also seeking the job.

Candidate disqualified over "fun" video

Derek Duval, of Vankleek Hill, says he has been disqualified from tomorrow's Glengarry-Prescott-Russell Conservative nomination convention because of a video shot "in good fun" years ago.

Mr. Duval says the last-minute decision came after party officials thought a pile of poutine shown being eaten off a hockey stick was a hamster. Plus, the person in the video isn't him.

Mr. Duval, son of long-time Vankleek Hill councillor Paul Emile Duval, charges the real reason was that party leader Patrick Brown wants Amanda Simard, a Russell councillor, to be the Tory standard-bearer in the next Ontario election.
