Ford meeting with Elliott day after close convention result

Ford meeting with Elliott day after close convention result

Elliott's late husband, Jim Flaherty, was Harris's finance minister in 2001-02.

"We are all behind our new leader and focused on our common goal of defeating the disastrous Wynne Liberal government", he said.

Ford, a former city councilor and older brother of late former Toronto mayor Rob Ford, was declared the victor at Saturday's convention in Markham after a seven-and-a-half hour delay.

The party will go ahead with its convention in Markham on Saturday where the victor will be chosen based on ranked ballots.

February 28: The party extends the deadline for members to register to cast a vote amid rising complaints that the necessary documents were not reaching people on time. "I will get our party back on track".

"Every night we raised more money than we did the night before".

Second Palestinian Killed in Weekend Clashes With Israeli Army
Israel's military said Palestinians approached the Itzhar settlement and clashed with local residents. Israel says the entire city is its indivisible, and eternal capital.

Two of the three other candidates, Caroline Mulroney and Tanya Granic Allen, supported Ford's call for members to have another week to register and cast a vote, but were turned down by the party Wednesday evening. Ford also had praise for Elliott, but said he had not spoken to her.

Romano said that to the party, Ford is, in fact, the leader.

Gina Brannan, representing the Progressive Conservative Party, told the judge the sudden January resignation of Brown, which came months before a spring election, had created an unprecedented situation that made the contracted leadership race necessary. Lefton tells a raucus crowd that the "allocation of a certain list of electors" needed to be resolved, as it could affect the final result.

Supporters and media crammed into Symposium Cafe, Restaurant and Lounge on Cundles Road East to listen to Ford speak about the party leadership race and the upcoming provincial election in June.

"I am disheartened. I am embarrassed by what is happening here tonight", said Klees, a Ford supporter, who lashed out at Elliott's camp for contesting the results.

"Quite frankly, it actually doesn't matter which of the candidates was chosen last night because if we look at the platform that they were ostensibly running on, there were billions of dollars of cuts that were coming forward", Wynne said when asked about the leadership vote at the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation's annual general meeting. 64,053 members voted - more than twice the number of votes cast in the 2009 leadership race.

Stephen Curry suffers ankle injury and will miss upcoming Warriors games
Warriors second-year guard Patrick McCaw will continue to wear a light brace on his injured left wrist for at least another week. Kevin Durant scored a game-high 37 points, including 14 straight points to essentially win the game late for Golden State .

It would have been hard to arrange another venue and volunteers in a week's time, and the cost of numerous contracts signed for services at the event would have had to be paid out twice, he said.

The prospects of a Doug Ford premiership looking more than just possible, Ontarians may be able to pay their hydro bills again without having to borrow from money set aside for their groceries.

Tensions grew when Brown, fresh off a campaign to clear his name, announced he would throw his hat in the ring in an attempt to reclaim his job.

Gina Brannon, the lawyer for the Ontario PC Party, said the turnout is something to celebrate - a record high due in large part to the first ever online ballot that meant people didn't have to drive great distances to vote.

For Elliott, 62, Saturday's result was yet another disappointment in her bid to lead the party.
