Jim Karahalios, husband of Cambridge MPP Belinda, announced Tuesday that he is joining the race to lead Canada’s Conservatives.
The corporate lawyer from Cambridge took aim at his rivals with his slogan “The Right Way Forward.”
He suggests that he’s running to the right of candidates Peter MacKay and Erin O’Toole who are in the “‘red Tory wing” of the party.
“We don’t need another career politician to lead our Conservative Party to yet another defeat,” Karahalios said in an emailed statement. “We need a fighter with a track record of winning against all odds. That’s why I am running.”
Karahalios previously made headlines for challenging the province’s former PC leader Patrick Brown with his “Axe the Carbon Tax” and “Take Back Our PC Party” campaigns.
