When she was 14, Mulroney campaigned for Lucien Bouchard during the 1988 Lac St. Jean by-election. After his victory, Bouchard sent her a handwritten thank-you note for her efforts in getting him elected to the PC government.

Politics

On December 12, 2015, the Toronto Sun published a profile of Caroline Mulroney, in which journalist Christina Blizzard speculated as to whether her father’s party would choose her as their new leader, to go head to head with Justin Trudeau, the current Prime Minister, the son of her father’s old rival, Pierre Trudeau. Blizzard quoted an unnamed “Tory insider”, on Mulroney’s performance, when she was the surprise keynote speaker at a 2009 event celebrating the 25th anniversary of her father’s administration. That unnamed source said: “She certainly has the smarts and the glamour to offset the current prime minister in any future election.”

Blizzard described her lack of political experience as a benefit since she “won’t wear any of the mistakes of the Stephen Harper government”. Andrew MacDougall, former director of communications to Stephen Harper, noted “But there’s a reason Tories—both provincially and federally—have dreamt for a Mulroney candidacy for years” because “she’s the closest thing the Tories have to royalty”.

When Caroline Mulroney served as joint master of ceremonies for the federal Conservative Party leadership convention in May 2017, she joked about Trudeau, “Who would want to run for their dad’s old job?”, but also said in a news interview, “I think politics is definitely something that I’ve always thought about as a career.” Mulroney responded to Blizzard with an email informing her that politics is not currently her priority telling her in an email: “While I am committed to public service and I am flattered by the suggestion, I am focused on my four young children and my work”.

Patrick Brown recruited Mulroney as a star candidate for the PCs after meeting her when he helped collect donations for her charity. On August 2, 2017, Mulroney announced that she would seek the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario nomination in the York—Simcoe constituency for the 2018 provincial election by releasing a video in which she stated that the government needs to “get out of the way”, manage taxes properly and focus on affordability.

She explained that she chose Mulroney as her political name because Mulroney Lapham was too long and she didn’t run as Caroline Lapham because, “no matter what I do, people just always call me Caroline Mulroney.” On September 10, 2017, Mulroney has acclaimed the PC candidate in York—Simcoe. Her father had previously revealed that she had consulted him over a career in politics and that she had decided to enter provincial instead of federal politics to be closer to her family.

Ontario PC Party leadership bid

Caroline Mulroney’s name was raised as a possible successor following the sudden resignation of Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown on January 25, 2018, due to allegations of sexual misconduct. On February 4, 2018, she declared her candidacy for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario by releasing a video online. Mulroney has the most support from the federal Conservative caucus with 10 members.

Mulroney was supported by at least four former Patrick Brown advisers: PC campaign chair Walied Soliman, ex-campaign manager Andrew Boddington, ad guru Dan Robertson, and strategist Hamish Marshall, the former director of the controversial website The Rebel Media and the Conservative Campaign Chair for the 43rd Federal Election. Her campaign vice-chair was Derek Vanstone, Stephen Harper’s former deputy chief of staff and a former Air Canada executive.

She expressed concern to the Toronto Star on February 4, 2018, that sending her children to private school might be used as political fodder, and after the leaders’ debate on February 28, 2018, she walked away from the post-debate scrum when being asked about why she sends her children to private schools by the Ottawa Citizen’s David Reevely. Mulroney was criticized by some, including Doug Ford, for living most of her adult life in the United States, but she dismissed that by saying: “I’ve lived the majority of my life in Canada and Ontario”.

Also running for the leadership were Ford, Christine Elliott, Tanya Granic Allen, and, for a time, Patrick Brown who registered as a candidate on February 18, 2018, before withdrawing a week later. Notwithstanding her previous statements of having “great confidence” in Brown, Caroline Mulroney tweeted disapproval of his decision to run. Mulroney urged Brown to resign from the leadership race and asked the other candidates to join her call. However, Ford and Elliott did not do so with Elliott specifically saying that the party had decided who could run for leader. Mulroney criticized Ford and Elliott for their stance.

Two workers in Mulroney’s camp privately admitted to CBC News in separate conversations that she was not in the lead while two former MPs who had endorsed Mulroney, Paul Calandra, and Parm Gill, moved their support to Elliott. In the leadership election held March 10, 2018, Mulroney came in third, behind winner Doug Ford and runner-up Christine Elliott, and was eliminated after the second ballot.

42nd Parliament of Ontario

Mulroney voted in support of the Ford government’s September 2018 proposal to use Section 33 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, commonly called the “notwithstanding clause”, to overrule a judge’s decision that legislation intended to shrink the size of Toronto City Council was in fact in violation of Charter rights. For this position, she faced widespread condemnation from constitutional experts and politicians of all parties, particularly with respect to her duty to ensure the sanctity of the judicial process as Attorney General.
