On Monday the Conservatives sent out a release, attributing the following statements to [now former Conservative nominee in Thunder Bay-Superior North Tamara] Johnson:
“As of this time, I am no longer the candidate for the Ontario PC Party in the riding of Thunder Bay-Superior North. “I support the aims and objectives of the Ontario PC Party as well as our leader Tim Hudak’s plan and vision for a better Ontario. I wish Tim Hudak and all the Ontario PC Party candidates the greatest success in the upcoming election.”
Johnson flatly denies making the statements.
