Ontario’s controversial former ombudsman who alleged the premier “orchestrated” his removal from public office, is going run for the Conservatives
Andre Marin says after fighting for average people as the ombudsman for a decade, he’s ready to take the fight to Queen’s Park.
Marin will run in an upcoming byelection in Ottawa-Vanier.
MPP for Ottawa-Vanier Liberal Madeleine Meilleur left politics in June, which freed up the seat in that riding. The government has yet to set a date for the vote.
Marin served as ombudsman for two five-year terms until last year and has since filed a lawsuit against Kathleen Wynne and the Liberal government for wrongful dismissal looking to recover two years of pay and $3 million in damages.
