Head of parents’ advocacy group joins Ontario PC leadership race

The head of a parents’ advocacy group has joined the race for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.

Tanya Granic Allen, president of Parents As First Educators (PAFE), announced her bid in a post on the organization’s website on Thursday.

“That’s it — I’m in,” she wrote.

“We have to make sure that the protest of parents across this province isn’t falling upon deaf ears. We have to make sure the social conservative voice is being respected. We need our message to be conveyed loudly and clearly.

“I’m not sure any of the three declared candidates are going to be that strong voice — at least not yet.”

Granic Allen has been an outspoken critic of the Ontario Liberals’ sex-education curriculum — and former Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown.

“I’ve always said that we need to get rid of the Kathleen Wynne Liberals,” she said in her post. “And you will remember my constant refrain: that the PC Party is not Patrick Brown’s property, and that sooner or later he would be gone. Well he’s finally gone! Now the PC Party needs a new leader — a leader who will STOP KATHLEEN WYNNE!”

So far, the province’s patient ombudsman Christine Elliott, lawyer Caroline Mulroney and former Toronto councillor Doug Ford have announced their intention to run.
