Tory MPP Peter Shurman is resigning and has announced he will not run in the next provincial election.
In a morning statement, Peter Shurman says he carefully considered his situation for several months and he believes continuing with his political career would be a mistake.
He says he's resigned effective Dec 31st. Shurman says he will also not be running in the next provincial election. He underlines he came to the decision himself after what he calls lengthy reflection and discussion with his family.
On the Jerry Agar Show, Shurman said he wishes PC leader Tim Hudak well.
The Thornhill MPP most recently claimed over $20,000 is housing expenses after commuting from his home in Niagara-On-The-Lake to Queen's Park in Toronto. Shurman lost his job as Progressive Conservative finance critic over this.
