Bailey backing Mulroney in PC leadership

Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey has thrown his support behind Caroline Mulroney to become leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.

“As a mother of four, a lawyer, a business women, and co-founder of the Shoebox Project, a charity that helps women and girls in homeless shelters, Caroline is the smart, hardworking, compassionate leader that our party and our province needs,” Bailey said.

Caroline Mulroney is a Toronto lawyer and venture fund manager. The daughter of former prime minister Brian Mulroney has never been elected to public office.

Mulroney is one of three declared leadership candidates, along with former MPP Christine Elliott and former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford.
