The Rebel attended the first Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario convention since Premier Doug Ford won his majority government in the summer of 2018.
The convention featured talks by Conservative Party of Canada leader Andrew Scheer, and Premier Ford himself. Delegates from across the province also met to vote on new legislation and a new party executive.
But a few kilometres outside of the convention centre, anti-Ford protestors met to challenge the new Conservative government.
David Menzies spoke with protestors and delegates alike. And The Rebel even hosted a meet-up at the convention, too.
