The PC leader speaks out the day after by-elections
19 0

While Valentine's Day could be seen as heartbreak for the Liberals after they failed to win in either of yesterday's by-elections, opposition leaders aren't necessarily celebrating their wins with a day at the spa or chocolate bon bons.

PC leader Tim Hudak for instance, is focusing on what could have been, blaming union influence for his party's loss to the NDP in Niagara Falls.

He says labour groups were getting out the vote for the other guys, underlining they have too pull within not only the NDP but also the Liberal government ranks.

And despite all this talk of labour group influence on voter turnout, Hudak brushes aside suggestions that he'll be targeting the NDP in a provincial vote saying they have little influence in major urban centres.

The PC leader suggests things could have gone his party's way if elections were run differently, given the Tories received the most amount of total votes in recent by-elections.

The Tories won Thursday's by-election in Thornhill.
