Hamilton lawyer won't be allowed to run in local PC nomination vote

A Hamilton lawyer who fought a long battle, claiming the nomination contest in the Hamilton West Ancaster Dundas riding was tainted, will not be allowed to run in next week's new vote.

Vikram Singh lost the nomination last year and that's when he alleged the contest was fixed, accusing party brass of stuffing the ballot box.

When Doug Ford became leader of the PC party earlier this year, he ordered a new vote in the riding set for April 15th.

But Singh who wanted to run again was rejected by the party.

No reason was given.

Singh thanked his supports saying "we gave it our best shot".
