Congratulations to Patrick Brown who has won the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives. He has a more than good chance of becoming Premier of Ontario at their next elections.
Ontario is the largest province of Canada, with 13 million people and 38% of the population.
I backgrounded Patrick’s bid here, and how he started as a under-dog. He won despite little support from the establishment.
The membership in Ontario has grown from 11,000 to almost 80,000. Brown’s campaign signed up most of them.
Brown won 62% of the vote. A few months he was polling under 10%.
