An Injunction Request Has Been Filed To Extend The Ontario PC Leadership Vote

Later this morning a member of the Ontario PC party is going to court to get an injunction to keep the leadership vote open for another week. Toronto lawyer Jeffrey Radnoff says the Superior Court of Justice has agreed to hear the application, just hours before the race was scheduled to end. The injunction request claims a number of party members, including his client, have not been allowed to vote yet because they have not received their PIN in the mail. Doug Ford, Caroline Mulroney and Tanya Granic-Allen have all been calling for the voting deadline to be extended. The party ruled against prolonging the race late Wednesday, saying that would contravene its constitution, and instead decided to push back the registration deadline to Thursday night and let members vote until noon Friday. Today’s hearing is scheduled to begin at 9:30am.
