Ontario's political landscape has been shaken to its core and its anyones
guess how the election this June will turn out now.
If you haven't heard the news, an earthquake and tsunami hit the
Progressive Conservative party late last night.
CTV News broke the story about two women making allegations of sexual
misconduct against PC leader Patrick Brown.
As the story broke, Patrick Brown held a very brief news conference to deny
all the allegations.
In today's climate, no one survives these kind of allegations and continues
to work, especially in a leadership role.
Right or wrong, the die has been cast and Brown should focus on addressing
the charges and clearing his name if he can.
Leading the PC's ... could be leading them to disaster at the polls, ending
up perhaps with 3rd party status.
It leaves a huge challenge for the Conservative party, with the election
less than 5 months away.
And with this political earthquake and tsunami hitting Queens Park, would
the NDP be seen now as a more credible alternative to the Wynne government
It could make for an interesting election this spring.
