When Mike Harris resigned as party leader, Clement ran to succeed him in the party's 2002 leadership election. During this campaign, his relationship with rival candidate Jim Flaherty deteriorated significantly. The atmosphere between them became poisoned through a series of personal attacks (some have suggested that Flaherty's campaign was behind a broadside that described Clement's wife as a lawyer for abortion doctors). While both Clement and Flaherty were perceived as being on the right wing of the party, Clement challenged his opponent's policies on the homeless, a proposal to ban teachers' strikes and other issues.

In federal politics

Clement first became prominent in federal politics in 2000, sitting on the steering committee for the United Alternative. This initiative was meant to provide a framework for the Reform Party and Progressive Conservative Party to unite under a single banner.

Clement attended the XVI International AIDS Conference in Toronto in August of 2006, which Prime Minister Stephen Harper did not attend, causing some controversy. Clement was booed by some conference participants, likely because of his role as surrogate for the Prime Minister. He focused most of his time at the conference promising to investigate the failure of the Canada Access to Medicines Regime to effectively fulfill its purpose of sending Canadian-manufactured generic drugs to developing countries, as per the August 30 Agreement at the World Trade Organization. After further criticism on the lack of new announcement on its efforts to combat AIDS, Clement responded saying that the atmosphere at the conference had become too "politicized". On December 1, World AIDS Day, International Cooperation Minister Josee Verner announced a $450 million investment over the next 10 years to fight AIDS.

    Tony Clement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1058 words)
    Clement became president of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario in 1990 and was a close ally of then-party leader Mike Harris.
    Clement was re-elected in the provincial election of 1999, defeating Liberal candidate Vic Dhillon by over 8,000 votes.
    Clement's critics accused him of being too right-wing to administer the province's medicare system earning himself the nickname "two-tier Tony" while his supporters contend he was an effective and innovative administrator.
