A long-time, Liberal MPP and political rival of Progressive Conservative Tim Hudak, on his last day in the legislature, described him as a man who never flip-flopped.
Hudak, who has served Niagara West-Glanbrook constituency since 1995, announced last month he was leaving politics. Elected at age 27, Hudak became PC leader in 2009, but lost provincial elections to the Liberals in both 2011 and 2014. Thursday, in the legislature, Jim Bradley, MPP for St. Catharines for the past 39 years, spoke of Hudak as a man with integrity.
“He didn’t pander to the issue of the day. He didn’t pander to individual interest groups and so on,” Bradley said.
