Progressive Conservative leadership candidate Heather Stefanson claims Shelly Glover has threatened to defeat existing PC MLAs or fire them from their duties — an allegation her rival calls “an outrageous lie.”
Stefanson claimed Tuesday evening Glover has told members of the party caucus — most of whom support the Tuxedo MLA in her bid to become Manitoba’s next premier on Oct. 30 — that the former Conservative MP will ensure they are defeated at future nomination meetings or fire them from their roles.
“What I’m very concerned about is Nov. 1. I think if she ends up being our premier, how does she get along with all the caucus colleagues that she’s told actually she’s going to run someone against them in their nominations, that she’s going to fire them,” Stefanson said at the Norwood Hotel following a candidates’ forum organized by the Conservative Club of Winnipeg.
