Ontario PC nominations have become contentious in recent months and last week was no exception from the cosmically crazy controversies we’ve seen in various riding nominations. 

Riding association presidents are appealing the outcome of at least two recent contests. At issue: numerous irregularities.

Earlier this month there were concerns about ballot-box stuffing in Ottawa West Nepean and officials with the Newmarket-Aurora PC riding association are challenging the April 8 nomination noting that the process and election had been tainted by a blatant breach of the nomination rules.

Watch as I fill you in on the details and speak to some of the people involved.

At the end of the day, yet another PC riding nomination ended in controversy and bitterness, peppered with allegations of rule-breaking and improper conduct.

So, what else is new in Ontario PC Land?
