Tim Hudak is scrambling today as the Ontario Progressive Conservative leader deals with another internal caucus problem.
Hudak has dismissed Randy Hillier as the P.C. labour critic – over an email he sent to caucus.
Hillier expressed concern in the message that the Tories could be open to criticism that they used a private members’ bill to try to bring in donations from a large construction company.
The legislation to give Ellis Don a break from a 1950’s law requiring the company to engage only unionized workers – was supported by both Liberals and Conservatives.
Hudak removed Peter Shurman last week as finance critic – after the m-p-p from Thornhill refused to pay back a 20-thousand dollar housing allowance.
