Another Ontario MP’s thrown their name into the ring to become the next federal Progressive Conservative leader.

44-year-old Michael Chong has represented the riding of Wellington-Halton Hills for 12 years.
He served as former prime minister Stephen Harper’s intergovernmental affairs minister before resigning in 2006.
Chong did not support a motion recognizing Quebecers as a nation, calling it ethnic nationalism.
The 44-year-old Chong moved to the backbenches from where he spearheaded legislation to give MPs more power.
A bill to that effect became law last fall.
The only other contenders for the Tory leadership are Maxime Bernier of Quebec and Kellie Leitch, who represents Simcoe-Grey riding.
