'There's an odour to Ottawa' as it relates to regional grants: Hill

Grant Hill was most recently the former deputy leader under Stockwell Day. A medical doctor who drives a red Ferrari and a methodical QP questioner, Mr. Hill has thrown some nasty punches at his former leader during this leadership campaign. A fighter and a key player as an opposition critic, he handily won his riding in the last election with 30,838 votes, garnering 24,736 more votes than the second-place Tory candidate. Unlikely to win, Mr. Hill is stirring up the race, nonetheless.
