It's official: we've signed up over 34,000 members
TORONTO, March 5, 2015 /CNW/ - "Today's announcement that the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario has 80,000 members provides much-needed clarity. After a few of days of exaggeration and guesswork, we finally have the facts.
Christine Elliott and her campaign signed up over 34,000 members.
Christine's support includes memberships submitted through her campaign as well as through riding associations across Ontario.
This is why our campaign waited to release our support. Our members and all Ontarians expect and deserve a leader who speaks with certainty. We waited for all memberships to be submitted and counted so that we could offer an accurate picture of our support, rather than resorting to premature and questionable claims.
Not only does Christine have overwhelming support from new members, the Party's existing members support her by a margin of 9 to 1.
All of these members, both new and existing, are distributed evenly across all 107 ridings in Ontario. In a race that counts all ridings equally, with these numbers, Christine will win."
