0 0

Ontario's Tories say it can't hurt to have another finance minister from the province in Ottawa.

Eglinton-Lawrence MP Joe Oliver was sworn in to the post this morning.

Progressive Conservative (PC) house leader Jim Wilson says Queen's Park has always been lucky when it comes to getting funding from the federal government, given a lot of senior Tories are from the province.

PC leader Tim Hudak says he's excited for Oliver, who did what he calls an "outstanding job" as Natural Resources Minister.

Hudak says he's sad Canada is losing now former-Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, who Hudak calls one of the greatest finance ministers the country has ever had.

Deputy PC leader - and Flaherty's wife - Christine Elliott says she plans to see more of her husband now that he is no longer the federal finance minister.

Elliott, however, won't say what Flaherty's next move is, other than he has plans to join the private sector.

She says, as it stands, he plans on continuing to serve his constituents as MP.

The next federal election is in May 2015.
