Of the 56 competitive nominations the PC Party has held to date in the run-up to the June 7 provincial election, nearly one in four have ended in controversy, a Globe and Mail tally has found. The tally excludes 14 ridings where candidates were acclaimed.
Following complaints over several nomination races, the party hired auditors from PricewaterhouseCoopers to monitor future nomination meetings. Mr. Brown said at the time that nomination meetings that had already occurred prior to June 3 would not be challenged.
Tory MPP Randy Hillier criticized the lack of transparency around the provincial nominations committee, saying he has been unable to obtain a complete list of its members and whether they were impartial in deciding the fate of the disputed races.   "How do you have faith or confidence in a system that is completely secretive," Mr. Hillier asked.
