PC leadership race coming to Niagara this week

Two of three PC party leadership hopefuls have plans to visit Niagara this week.

Former Toronto City Councillor Doug Ford will be visiting Welland's Royal Canadian Legion Branch 4 Tuesday night.

The brother of the late former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will be holding a rally for a Better Ontario and a meet and greet from 6-7:30pm.

The next day on Wednesday, Caroline Mulroney will host a lunch in St.Catharines at Johnny Rocco's.

Mulroney, the daughter of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is a Toronto-based lawyer.

The other candidate, former MPP Christine Elliott has not announced plans to visit Niagara, but made a stop in Hamilton last week.

This is Elliott's third time trying for leadership of the PC Party; she lost to Brown in 2015 and to Niagara MPP Tim Hudak in 2009.

Former party leader Patrick Brown stepped down amid sexual misconduct allegations.

He has recently took to social media to claim not only his innocence, but also claims that he prove that the allegations are untrue.
