TORONTO – With another stamp on her Ontario PC Point Card, Christine Elliott has seven more attempts at trying to win the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership before she earns herself a free six inch sandwich.
Three-time leadership candidate said that her card was stamped at OPC Headquarters when she paid the $125,000 entrance fee, which is redeemable at any participating OPC restaurants.
“I’m glad I kept this point card in my wallet for a reason,” said Elliott at a campaign stop in Brampton. “This gives me a leg up on all of the other candidates who only have one stamp.”
After receiving the points card in 2009 after her first unsuccessful bid, the 62-year-old former MPP says that she couldn’t let the card go to waste.
“I’m not here to win the leadership; I’m here to get that damn sub.”
Elsewhere on the campaign, Doug Ford was busy folding leaflets into dime bags, helicopter parent Brian Mulroney spent the entire night finishing up his daughter’s speech to the Canadian Club of Toronto, and Tanya Granic Allen hosted a rally condemning Ontario’s anal-sex math curriculum.
