Hudak returns to Queen's Park

Former Tory leader sworn in privately, attends Question Period

Tim Hudak was in good spirits as reported back to work at Queen's Park.

The former Progressive Conservative leader was sworn in as MPP for Niagara West-Glanbrook in a private ceremony on Wednesday, two weeks after his colleagues took their oaths.

Hudak jokes that his daughters now recognize him as their father, pointing to the long hours he put in as leader. He says he spent these extra weeks off focusing on family.

He calls his time as Tory leader the best five years of his life.

Hudak stresses he doesn't want to reflect too much on the election campaign, underlining the voters have spoken. He says he's looking forward now.

    The voters have spoken, and they've said the same thing as thousands of meth-heads in the American Midwest: Gimme that poison, and gimme it now!

    I'm surprised his family hasn't disowned him. First he holds the OPP back at Caledonia while a man is almost beaten to death. That cowardice alone should have cost him his job. Then he lied through his teeth during elections and thereafter as Premier. Then he arranges to "steal" over $ 1 Billion to save 2 seats.

    Imagine a parent that despicable!

      @Frankie You're thinking of Dalton McGuinty, Liberal Poster Boy.

    After Mike Duffy serves his sentence for the 31 criminal criminal charges in Senate scandal, he should consider running for premier.
