Doug Ford rules out running for Ontario PC leadership - 2014-11-27
The divisive older brother of Toronto's famous mayor will not make a bid for the premier's office.
Doug Ford ended weeks of speculation Thursday morning, convening a news conference to announce he will not run for the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership. He said he only made up his mind the night before.
"It's been the most difficult decision of my entire life," Mr. Ford said outside Deco Labels and Tags, the family business in a north Etobicoke industrial park. "I apologize to all our supporters, my family, especially my brother Rob."
