Veteran Conservative MP Scott Reid has pledged to sever his financial support for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party unless his provincial counterpart, MPP Randy Hillier, is invited back into the PC caucus.

Hillier, the MPP for Lanark–Frontenac–Kingston, was ousted from the Ontario PC caucus on Feb. 20 following dismissive remarks he was alleged to have made toward a group of parents of children with autism in the public gallery at Queen's Park.

Premier Doug Ford said Hillier's comments "crossed the line" and were "disrespectful" to the parents.
