Queen’s Park –Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath issued the following statement on the resignation of PC Deputy Leader Christine Elliott.
'On behalf of New Democrats I want to thank Christine Elliott for her years of service to the people of Whitby-Oshawa. Although we didn't always agree on politics, I have tremendous respect for her efforts in the Legislature and in her community, particularly to empower Ontarians with disabilities. Christine always conducted herself with dignity and intelligence. By her example she inspired young women to get involved in politics. I will miss the presence of such a strong fellow female voice in the Legislature. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours.'
