( the pc's aim to have all candidates nominated by this summer but that won't include out spoken social conservatives )

Analysis
Patrick Brown aiming to shed 'social conservative' tag

PC leader vows to keep out any candidate whose chief goal is to push a 'divisive social issue'

By Mike Crawley, CBC News Posted: Dec 12, 2016 5:00 AM ET| Last Updated: Dec 12, 2016 7:46 AM ET

Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown at his year-end news conference for 2016.


By next summer, a year ahead of the 2018 election, the Progressive Conservative Party aims to have candidates nominated in every single riding in Ontario. To all those thinking of running, PC leader Patrick Brown is sending a message: social conservatives, keep out.

Despite winning the party leadership with significant backing from social conservatives, Brown has vowed to make his party more socially progressive.

He is struggling to make that a reality, as people with strong views against same-sex marriage, abortion and the province's new sex-ed curriculum seek nominations.


During a news conference at Queen's Park on Thursday, Brown spoke at length about his party's process for vetting candidates.

"If your reason for going to Queen's Park would be to push a divisive social issue, then that would be unwelcome," he said. "People can have their private religious views, but just know where I stand and what the focus of our party is."

That focus includes jobs, hydro rates, and cutting government waste, said Brown. He said many potential candidates are expressing interest in running for the PCs and "the vast, vast, vast majority have no interest in revisiting social issues."

It's essential for Brown, if he wants to become premier of Ontario, to keep his party away from politically toxic causes like de-funding abortion or questioning same-sex marriage. Pollsters suggest too few Ontarians hold conservative views on social issues to make it a path to electoral victory.

A poll published last month by Forum Research found 70 per cent of Ontarians approve of legalized abortion and 71 per cent support for same-sex marriage. The same polling found only 33 per cent of Ontarians oppose the new sex-ed curriculum.

"The province is not socially conservative," said Lorne Bozinoff, president of Forum Research, adding that it's "absolutely crucial" for Brown to shed that label.

Bozinoff told me in an interview that the PCs must reach beyond their base of about 30 per cent of the electorate and appeal to other voters to win a majority. "Those voters are centrist. They don't react well to social conservatism," he said.

The Liberals continue to do everything they can to paint Brown with that brush.

Brown's 'big conversion'

"Patrick Brown, until recent months, was a strong social-conservative himself," the Liberal campaign co-chair, deputy premier Deb Matthews, told reporters at Queen's Park last week.

"This is who he was until he had this big conversion," Matthews said, pointing to his record as a backbench MP in Ottawa during the Stephen Harper years. "He voted to reopen the debate on same-sex marriage, voted to open the debate on abortion. He has a long history of aligning himself with social conservative organizations."

Brown doesn't like to talk about that voting record, preferring instead to mention how he became the first Ontario PC leader to lead an official delegation in Toronto's Pride Parade.

He calls the Liberal efforts to label him a social conservative "desperate diversion tactics."

"The shoe doesn't fit," Brown said. "When I get up every day in the Legislature asking questions my focus is on the financial health of Ontario."

The Liberals are "trying to demonize me," said Brown. "They're embarrassed at their own record and so their only path is to demonize their opponents."

Brown's efforts to portray himself as socially progressive weren't helped by the surprise nomination in Niagara West - Glanbrook of Sam Oosterhoff, a 19-year-old who opposes abortion, and has criticized the sex-ed curriculum and a bill improving the parental rights of same-sex couples.

But since being sworn in as an MPP on Nov. 30, Oosterhoff has refused to take the bait on any social issue, suggesting the leader and the party have told him to tread carefully.

Since Oosterhoff won his nomination in October, the PC party has rejected the candidacies of at least two people with strong socially conservative views. The party refuses to reveal the grounds for rejection.

"If someone is disqualified, it's for very legitimate reasons," Brown said. "If they have something in their past that is not part of the direction we're taking, that would embarrass the party, they're not going to be approved as a candidate. We have the right to do that."

Former Quebec politician latest addition to Brown's 2018 ticket


Ainslie Cruickshank

Monday, December 12th, 2016



Progressive Conservatives in Mississauga-Centre have nominated lawyer Angely Pacis – who previously ran for election to the Quebec legislature – to represent them in the 2018 race to Queen’s Park.

The Mississauga-Centre nomination process was the latest to draw attention last week after a disqualified contender from another PC nomination suggested that one of the contestants in the race – Urz Heer – was a Liberal supporter.

“I am very thankful for this honour,” Pacis said in a video posted to YouTube after her nomination win.

“Let’s get this going. Let’s galvanize the vote for 2018.”

She’s followed on the video by Rick Dykstra, PC party president: “It is great to stand on a stage with four people who not only shook each other’s hands but committed to each other to help Mississauga-Centre turn blue and bring a majority Conservative government to this province. It’s long overdue.”



Pacis, a lawyer specializing in immigration, constitutional and aboriginal law, was raised in Mississauga but spent almost two decades in Quebec, where she ran for election in 2012 as part of Francois Legault’s right-of-centre Coalition for Quebec’s Future.

At the time, Legault billed himself as a Quebec nationalist who accepts that Quebec is part of Canada but prioritizes Quebec’s interests.

During the 2012 election campaign, Pacis publicly demanded Legault clarify his positions on Bill 101, the French Language Charter and stated that he couldn’t hope to win a majority unless he offered more support to English first language speakers, CBC reported at the time.

With 14 per cent of the vote, Pacis came second to the incumbent Liberal candidate Kathleen Weil, who won 63 per cent of the vote.

Pacis returned to Ontario in 2014.

Heading into the 2018 election, she says on her website that she “seeks to serve the people of Mississauga-Centre on issues of health care, education, job growth and the economy to build a sustainable future for (the) Region of Peel.”

A number of PC nominations to date have been controversial, dogged by claims of unfair disqualifications and poorly managed nomination meetings.

In Burlington, the riding association’s membership chair and lawyer Colin Pye filed an appeal after the Nov. 26 nomination that ex-MPP Jane McKenna won.

“There had been a significant number of irregularities and unfairness in the process leading up to the nomination and going through the nomination vote itself,” Pye said.

While Jane Michael — the chair of the Halton Catholic District School Board, who lost the nomination — considers herself socially progressive, Jay Tysick said other contestants, including himself in Carleton, Derek Duval in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell and another candidate in Mississauga Streetsville, have been disqualified based on their socially-conservative views.

( a bogus nomination appeal has been rejected in Burlington , I don't see what this candidate was upset about other than that she lost to the former mpp and should of seen that result coming )


Brown's PCs dismiss Burlington nomination appeal


Ainslie Cruickshank

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016


The Ontario Progressive Conservatives have dismissed an appeal seeking to have the Burlington nomination of ex-MPP Jane McKenna overturned.

“I feel disheartened by it,” said Colin Pye, the riding association’s membership chair and a lawyer, who filed the appeal last week arguing the Nov. 26 nomination was unfair and plagued by irregularities.

Jane Michael, the chair of the Halton Catholic District School Board and McKenna’s opponent in the nomination race, “was placed at an insurmountable disadvantage in her ability to promote her candidacy to the riding association membership,” Pye wrote in his appeal.

Last week, Michael herself compared the whole process to the “wild west.”

McKenna disagrees. “It was a fair process,” she said Wednesday evening.

“I’ve been in many nomination meetings and it’s always the same process all along and everybody seemed quite happy the day that we were there,” she said.

Pye said he was told Saturday that his appeal was being dismissed after a 20-minute conference call with three members of the party who formed an appeal panel, including Steve Gilchrist, the party’s director of organization and election readiness, Tony Miele, the chairman of the PC Ontario Fund, and Jim Burnett, a member of the Provincial Nomination Committee.

“While we do not discuss internal party matters I can confirm an appeal was filed and after hearing submissions was dismissed in its entirety,” said Bob Stanley, the party’s executive director, in a statement.

“The Party now considers the matter closed,” he said.

Pye said he was asked during the call if he had any further submissions, but he said wouldn’t call it a hearing. Instead he said it seemed like a decision had already been made and he was just being given it.

That decision included a point-by-point rebuttal of the arguments he had made in his appeal letter, Pye said. Gilchrist emailed Pye with a more detailed official response to each issue he raised on Dec. 12.

In response to concerns that the party only approved Michael’s candidacy the night before the nomination, Gilchrist noted that McKenna was also only approved that night so neither candidate had an advantage in that regard.

Gilchrist also refuted concerns that the voting process was poorly managed and that there may have been opportunities for ineligible voters to cast ballots.

The total number of ballots cast matched the number of names crossed off the voters list, indicating there was no misconduct, Gilchrist wrote in the email.

Pye said he expected there would be more of a process including the chance to ask questions of the people included in his complaint as well as those people the appeal board had spoken to during their investigation.

“I probably shouldn’t have been surprised at all,” Pye said, noting he had to appeal to the same people he was complaining about.

The party may have had an added incentive to deal with the appeal quickly he said, noting there was a PC fundraiser in Burlington on Dec. 12 – one of the last fundraisers before new rules come into force in January.

Burlington is just one of a series of PC nominations shrouded in controversy over unfair disqualifications and processes.

Derek Duval, who was seeking the party’s nomination in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, was disqualified and Amanda Simard was acclaimed the candidate.

He claimed the party disqualified him because of his involvement in a video filmed during a charity hockey game that shows someone eating poutine – which party officials somehow mistook for a hamster – off a hockey stick.

The PCs also dropped two candidates from the Carleton nomination race in October. One candidate, Michael Nowak, was disqualified after he called rival and now candidate Gholdie Ghamari “Muslim trash.”

Jay Tysick, a former senior aide to Ottawa City Councillor Rick Chiarelli and now a managing partner of Faraday Partners, was also disqualified from the race but was not given a reason.

It’s a trend Pye finds alarming.

“It’s difficult for us to go to the electorate in Ontario and say that we’re going to be fair to them if at the same time we’re not showing essential fairness to members of our own party,” he said.

Ontario PC Party nominates Pickering-Uxbridge candidate

Pickering News Advertiser

PICKERING — The Ontario PC Party has announced its candidate in the Pickering-Uxbridge riding.

Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown congratulated Peter Bethlenfalvy, who lives in Pickering, on his nomination in a press release.

“A leader in the financial services sector, Peter brings invaluable experience to our Ontario PC team,” he said.

Bethlenfalvy has spent 25 years holding international senior leadership roles and currently acts as chief investment officer at C.S.T. Consultants Inc. Previously, he was senior vice president of financial regulations at Manulife Financial, as well as co-president of DBRS Limited, where the agency downgraded Ontario’s long- and short-term debt ratings.

“Peter is well-equipped to help us address Ontario’s dire economic and fiscal state,” Brown said.

Bethlenfalvy is a member of the C.D. Howe Institute’s Services Research Initiative and serves on the board of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.

The Pickering-Uxbridge riding will be a new one in 2018. Uxbridge is currently represented by Liberal Granville Anderson, while Pickering is represented by Liberal Tracy MacCharles.

( news of a city councillor being nominated in Markham Thornhill )

Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Logan Kanapathi


December 19, 2016



“I congratulate Logan Kanapathi on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Markham-Thornhill.

“Logan brings a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to our modern, inclusive and pragmatic Ontario PC team. A City Councillor for Markham since 2006, Logan was the first Tamil elected in North America. On council Logan has a wealth of experience, serving as Chair of the Budget Committee and as a council representative for the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racisim and Discrimination.

“Logan was a champion for his community throughout his decade on City Council, and I know he will continue to be a tireless advocate for the people of Markham-Thornhill as their next MPP.

“I first met Logan when I was standing up for Tamil Canadians as a Member of Parliament speaking out against the genocide in Sri Lanka. I am proud that my outreach and activism has helped to bring so many Tamil Canadians like Logan into the Progressive Conservative Party.

“After 13 years, life is harder under the Liberals. Skyrocketing hydro rates are unaffordable for both families and businesses. Cut after cut to health care services has meant more time waiting for care, and taxpayer dollars continue to be wasted.

“In Markham-Thornhill and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard to earn the trust of voters. I look forward to working with Logan and all of our Ontario PC Party team as we work hard to share our positive message for a more prosperous Ontario.”

( mayor Hector Macmillan of trent hills who made the news when he had to travel to Germany for cancer treatment after being denied by ohip , wants to run for the Ontario pc nomination in his riding )


Dec 21, 2016 | Vote 0 0

Macmillan looking to become MPP for Northumberland-Quinte West


Trent Hills Independent
By John Campbell


Trent Hills – Mayor Hector Macmillan will be looking for a new job in 2018. He has his eyes set on becoming the MPP for the riding, representing the Progressive Conservative Party.
And his ambitions are loftier than to serve just as a member of the provincial parliament. He's looking to replace whom he calls the “Minister of Ineffectiveness,” Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.
“I have every intention of sitting behind his desk,” said Macmillan, who was elected mayor in 2003. “I'm doing because this needs to be done ... (and) I've been encouraged by so many people to do that.”
Macmillan said his dealings with the provincial government in battling pancreatic cancer were the “trigger” for his desire to move up the political ladder.
The health ministry denied his application for funding to have the surgery he urgently needed done abroad where it's available. With the help of donations, however, he was able to travel to Germany in October for an operation that has extended his life but he remains bitter about how he was treated, and how others in the same situation are going through the same thing he did.
“We elect people to effect change,” which Hoskins has resisted, so “what purpose does he serve?” Macmillan asked.
He needs to go, as do Local Health Integration Networks, the Health Services Review Board and Cancer Care Ontario, “the whole bunch of them.”
Should he win the PC nomination, he will run “an anti-Wynne campaign,” because Premier Kathleen Wynne has “lost all her credibility” and she and her “inner circle” are “totally incompetent,” he said.
“I would never run an anti-Lou Rinaldi campaign,” because the Northumberland-Quinte West MPP has done “some great stuff” for the riding.
But, since the Liberals returned to office with a majority in 2014, their “arrogance ... has been unbelievable” and relations between the province and municipalities are “at an all-time low,” Macmillan continued.
“We've had enough of the provincial mismanagement of our money,” including “the soaring cost of electricity” and the sale of shares in Hydro One “just to fill a budget gap,” he said.
“What do you do for an encore next year?”
The current government is a “prime shining example of how not to run a government or a business.”

WATERLOO REGION – Waterloo Catholic District School Board trustee Amy Fee is the first to throw her hat into the ring, hoping to represent the Progressive Conservative Party in South Kitchener-Hespeler during the next provincial election campaign.

( no surprise in Nipissing where Fedeli has been nominated )


Fedeli wins Nipissing nomination for June, 2018 election
 

Rocco Frangione, staff Tuesday, Jan. 3rd, 2017


You know we’re getting closer to a provincial election when the parties start nominating their candidates. In Nipissing, no surprise here, MPP Vic Fedeli was named the candidate to represent the riding for the P.C.’s.

Fedeli is the Tories’ finance critic and his leader, Patrick Brown, says the former North Bay mayor has exposed several Liberal scandals. Brown adds Fedeli continues to keep the disastrous Liberal economic record in the public eye.

The next election is June 2018, and Fedeli will be going after his third term in office.

PCs sticking with Fedeli


Tuesday, January 3, 2017 11:15:17 EST PM



Vic Fedeli was acclaimed Monday as the Progressive Conservative candidate for the 2018 Ontario election.

During the Nipissing riding association's meeting, Fedeli highlighted some of 2016's successes, including the implementation of his private member’s bill which introduced the life-saving Patch4Patch program across Ontario.

Patch4Patch originated in North Bay and was created as a direct response to fentanyl overdoses happening throughout the riding, province and country.

Fedeli also highlighted the successful fight to remove measures in the Liberal government’s 2016 budget that would have significantly increased the price of prescription drugs for seniors.

“In last year’s budget, the Liberal government was attempting to double the price of prescription drugs for seniors. It would have punished our most vulnerable seniors, many who are on fixed incomes. We started a fight, Stand by our Seniors, right here in North Bay and successfully got that section removed from the budget,” said Fedeli.

Looking forward to 2017, Fedeli will continue to work on his new private member’s bill to make financial literacy mandatory for Grade 10 students and fight against the Kathleen Wynne government’s failed energy policies that have led to skyrocketing hydro prices.

“Since he was first elected in 2011, Vic has been a stellar member of provincial parliament in our Ontario PC caucus,” PC Leader Patrick Brown said in an e-mail congratulating Fedeli on his nomination.

“As our finance critic, Vic is a prominent voice exposing Liberal scandal and holding the government to account over their disastrous economic record.

“With his experiences as an MPP, the mayor of North Bay and as a local business owner, I know Vic understands the challenges and opportunities Nipissing faces. I have the utmost confidence that Vic will continue to work extremely hard on behalf of his community, and will hold the Wynne Liberals accountable.”

Why is it nobody wants to talk about social conservatism on here?

Is it because we're worried that to even utter a word will cause women to stampede to the NDP for fear that their ability to kill their own unborn children will be limited in some way?

If so, they should relax. This is about sex education.

These days, our kids are being literally taught that there are girls with penises and boys without. And everybody knows that you can't have boys -- even if they don't have penises -- sharing the girls' toilets. And since they can't use urinals without making a mess (and boys being so cruel) need their own facilities.

And same goes for the boys toilets. The girls with penises feel endangered in the presence of all those penises.

It would make you a social conservative if you thought that maybe schools ought to focus on math more than mainstreaming sexual weirdness? What's the point of being a Progressive Conservative if your party can''t make a stink about this?

Does anyone think that there's a "grass roots" under these plans?

FYI, true sexual dysphoria occurs at a rate of 0.6% of the population. That would be 6 in a 1000! And those people know what gender they are, they just don't have the right equipment. It is probably best dealt with as a mental disease. People who set out in life as transgendered have a suicide five times greater than mainstream people with their equipment. Those who have the surgery have a suicide 19 times that already high rate -- estimates made by physicians treating the disorder estimate that 40% of the surgically altered transgendered people commit suicide.

http://www.thenewatlantis.com/docLib/...

Explain to me -- why the silence? Why are Progressive Conservatives so cowardly? Or are they simply in the Danny Williams mold, looking on politics as a way of ripping off their fellow citizens in any way they can? Is there no moral core at the center of Canadian conservatism or is it all this progressive crap in disguise?

This marks the fourth time McNaughton has won the Conservative Party nomination for the riding of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex


Age Dispatch staff

Friday, January 6, 2017 12:16:47 EST AM

Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton


Local MPP Monte McNaughton was elected Thursday, Jan. 5, to represent once again the Lambton-Kent-Middlesex riding for the Conservative Party in the next provincial elections to take place in 2018.

Thursday’s results marked the fourth time McNaughton has been elected to represent the party, after first winning the nomination for the 2007 elections. That year, McNaughton was defeated by-then incumbent Liberal MPP Maria Van Bommel.

McNaughton was then re-elected to represent the Conservatives in the 2011 election and went ahead to claim the seat from Van Bommel with a difference of more than 6,000 votes. McNaughton, who currently serves as Official Opposition Critic for both Economic Development, Employment, and Growth and for Infrastructure, kept his seat as MPP of the riding in 2014.

“I am honoured to serve as MPP of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex and to stand-up for our local communities at Queen’s Park,” McNaughton said in a press release.

“I have always believed that the best ideas come from right here at home and that it is my job to take these ideas back to Queen’s Park for debate and further consideration.

“After 13 years in power, life is harder under Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals, so tonight marks the next step to electing a strong, PC majority government here in Ontario. Thank you for your support and endorsement.”
