WATCH: Tories meet to lick battle wounds
Anger, disappointment felt by MPPs as Hudak's leadership debated
0 0

Tim Hudak is still leader of Ontario's Progressive Conservatives but it's unclear how long that will last.

After over three hours of debate, Tory MPPs emerged from their caucus room at Queen's Park tight-lipped.

However, some hinted while Hudak is still leader, his role would be diminished during question period, getting all Tory MPPs to ask questions of the Liberal majority government instead of having a focus on the leader.

This meeting was a run-down of the election results, with MPPs expressing anger and disappointment as they walked in. Some pointed to the proposed 100,000 public sector jobs cuts as the reason they lost the election, offering they weren't consulted about the plan.

Hudak came out of the meeting repeating that he will stay on until a new leader is chosen by his party.

He maintains he will stay on as MPP for Niagara West-Glanbrook.

MPP Todd Smith calls the vote last Thursday an election against Hudak and wants him to step down earlier.
