Friends: 

The last few weeks have seen noteworthy events within our Conservative family, with the resignation of John Baird from the federal ministry and the departure of Vic Fideli and Lisa MacLeod from the PC Leadership race. We appreciated John Baird's tenacious presence in Parliament and his dedication to our movement. We wish him the very best. 


The PC Leadership race is now down to three candidates: MP Patrick Brown, MPP Christine Elliott and MPP Monte McNaughton. To vote in the Ontario PC Leadership, you must obtain a valid party membership by 5 PM on February 28, 2015. Voting will take place by preferential ballot on May 3rd and 7th. Our Leadership Convention will take place May 9th at the Toronto Congress Centre. Click here to renew or purchase your membership.

Below you will find information about several upcoming events in the GTA. Please continue to use our newly improved website to ensure your events are included in our monthly events newsletter, which reaches more than 2,000 supporters in the GTA. Your ideas and questions are always welcome.

Sincerely,

Anthony, Alex, Candice & Ben
