The Provincial Progressive Conservatives have announced that Lan Daniel will be the York South-Weston candidate in the October 6 election. She is the wife of brand new Federal Tory MP for Don Valley East, Joe Daniel. According to Joe’s website, they run a graphics design business in the Don Valley East riding.
Presumably Tory leader Tim Hudak couldn’t find a qualified Progressive Conservative living in York South-Weston to be the official candidate. It can only be hoped that Ms Daniel will get up to speed with the issues in this riding and will be able to explain why she is better qualified than a resident candidate. This, after all, was a major issue in Alan Tonks’ recent defeat.
