More twists, turns, and confusion in the race for the Ontario PC Party nomination in Cambridge.

After Riding Association President Rob Leone confirmed it yesterday, Tanya Granic Allen is now refuting claims that she’s seeking the nomination.

Leone told The Mike Farwell Show on Friday that there were three approved candidates in the Cambridge race – Sunny Attwal, Bert Laranjo, and Tanya Granic Allen.

Numerous other sources reported the same thing – but Granic Allen is calling it all ‘fake news’.

In a statement to 570 NEWS, Granic Allen’s media representative confirms that it’s not true.

“As it stands now, Tanya has not spoken to ANY Riding Association since the Leadership about potentially running in that individual riding. As soon as Tanya has decided what she intends to do next she will be happy to make it public.”

The contradictory reports come just days after the Ontario PCs abruptly cancelled the upcoming nomination vote in Cambridge. It was set for March 24th, and there’s still no word on why it was postponed, or when it will be rescheduled.

570 NEWS has reached out to both Leone and Granic Allen for further comment.
