Top Conservative says Dykstra investigation plagued with perception problems

Top Conservative says Dykstra investigation plagued with perception problemsThe investigation of how the Conservative party handled a sexual-assault allegation against former Tory MP Rick Dykstra in the last federal election campaign is wrapping up, but a former top Conservative says the process has been flawed. Dykstra denies any misconduct but resigned in January as the president of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party after the years-old allegation was made public. The federal Conservative party hired Toronto lawyer Carol Nielsen in March to review the events around the allegations and seek information to help the party create policies for such cases.

Ford should focus on Ontario, not on replacing Scheer, LeBlanc says

Ford should focus on Ontario, not on replacing Scheer, LeBlanc saysThe Ford government should be using Thursday's economic update to unveil its plan to combat climate change in Ontario, rather than resorting to "gimmicks" to criticize the federal plan, the federal intergovernmental affairs minister says. Dominic LeBlanc offered that advice Wednesday, one day before the provincial government issues a fall economic statement that's expected to announce measures aimed at exposing the cost to consumers of the federal Liberals' carbon tax. The Globe and Mail has reported that possible measures include slapping carbon tax stickers on gas pumps across Ontario and itemizing home heating bills and gas receipts to show the cost of the federal price on carbon pollution.
