Doug Ford Has Won Ontario PC Leadership, Ford Family Says
Members of Doug Ford’s family have told CP24 that he has won the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. No official announcement has been made.
Diane Ford told CP24 that her son Doug will “be a good leader because he’s been a leader in anything he did.”
“I’ve always thought, our whole family has thought, that ... this is the way the country, the province should be run, in a business-like manner, and he’s proved that he’s a very good businessman,” she said.
John Capobianco, co-chair of Christine Elliott’s campaign, said that he believes the Ford family must have heard something that “gave them that indication that he might have won.”
“I’m not saying that it’s not true, but we just haven’t gotten any word from any of the party officials as yet,” Capobianco said. “We don’t know until someone official lets us know,” he added.
