Outspoken MPP Randy Hillier is now out of the Progressive Conservative caucus – for good.
A letter from the caucus chair says the decision was made by the premier after a full review of his conduct prior to and after his suspension last month.
In the letter, Daryl Kramp says Doug Ford was disappointed that Hillier ”continued to escalate the situation in public” and appeared unwilling to be a team player.
The premier’s office is not saying if the decision was in response to Hillier’s comments the other day that he feels he had been suspended for clashing with some of Ford’s top advisers.
The premier has said Hillier was suspended for comments he made last month at the legislature as parents of children with autism packed the public galleries in protest of recent funding changes.
