Mike Harris Jr. for PC nomination candidate. (FACEBOOK)
TORONTO — Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford has appointed candidates in nearly a dozen ridings ahead of the upcoming provincial election, and they include the son of a former premier.
With Ontarians set to go to the polls on June 7, the PCs released a statement Saturday announcing 11 appointees for ridings where a nomination meeting hadn’t been scheduled.
They include Mike Harris Jr., the son of former Ont. premier Mike Harris, who led a Tory government in the province for nearly seven years in the late-’90s and early-2000s.
Harris Jr. has been appointed to represent the PCs in the riding of Kitchener-Conestoga — a seat currently held by a politician with a strikingly similar name.
Michael Harris — no relation to Harris Jr. — announced earlier this month he would not be running for re-election due to medical reasons.
He was later booted from the Tory caucus amid allegations of harassment from a former intern.
