On second thought

Having recently lost the Liberal nomination in Vaughan, Tony Genco now endorses the Conservative candidate he was defeated by in November’s byelection.

After much thoughtful reflection and deliberation, I am pleased to announce that I will be supporting Julian Fantino as our Member of Parliament for Vaughan and the Conservative Party of Canada in this important general election. I have arrived at this decision after careful consideration and deliberation, recognizing that given my history and background, this will come as a surprise to many.

Presumably, Mr. Genco has gotten over his concerns about the Conservative government’s fiscal management and Mr. Fantino’s regard for democracy. And presumably the Conservative side no longer thinks Mr. Genco has something to hide.
