Caroline Mulroney is in for the PC Leadership
Another former Prime Minister’s offspring is jumping into politics.
Caroline Mulroney, a toronto lawyer, philanthropist, and daughter of former PM Brian Mulroney, has announced her intention to run for the leadership of the provincial PC’s.
The 43-year-old mother of four said despite the recent turmoil within the party after the sudden resignation of Patrick Brown, the tories can come together and win the June 7 provincial election.
She made the announcement in a video from her home, surrounded by family and friends during a Superbowl party.
In 2011, Mulroney co-founded the Shoebox Project, a non-profit that collects and distributes gifts to women who are homeless or at risk.

Former tory legislator Christine Elliott and Toronto politician Doug Ford have already announced their plans to run.
Another potential contender, Rod Phillips, has now announced he won’t run, and will support Mulroney for the leadership.
The new leader will be announced through electronic voting, March 10th.
