NORTH BAY — Vic Fedeli, Ontario’s Minister of Finance, is wading into the world of fashion.
Standing outside his home early Thursday morning, Fedeli announced the launch of a line of custom tailor-made silk ties.
“Ontario knows me for two things,” began Fedeli. “Honest, open, transparent governance, and for my delightfully whimsical yellow ties.”
“Today I am happy to say that now anyone can wear the same ties I do. Starting at just $79.99, these new ‘Tiedelis’ will bring you one step closer to being the career politician we all know you can be.”
“The I can’t help with honest governance though.”
Vic’s “Tiedeli” line will be produced by Hudson’s Bay. Available colours include Lemon Chiffon, Harvest Gold, Corn Yellow, Goldenrod and Not Patrick Brown.
“Right now I’m wearing the Harvest Gold Tiedeli,” declared Fedeli. “It retails for $189.99, which is really reasonable, I think.”
Those interested in buying a Tiedeli will be able to find them in the spring at Hudson’s Bay and The North Bay Museum.
All profits from the tie sales will go toward legal fees and the installation of a sauna in Fedeli’s third bathroom.
