CFN – Justin Trudeau surprise, surprise, won the Liberal leadership race today. SD&SG riding supplied only 375 ballots out of over 100,000 that participated in Canada. Surely not an endorsement for the Liberal brand in Cornwall and the counties.
Ms Clement, currently snared in the net of scandal surrounding former CAO Paul Fitzpatrick and former MP and Whip Mayor Bob Kilger has been running a very high Grit profile.
She ran in the last Federal election sinking the Liberals a tad lower than their last attempt under Denis Sabourin. She’s also been buzzing around new Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne.
The question is whether Mr. Trudeau can penetrate the stranglehold on Canadian politics currently held by the Stephen Harper Conservatives or even the Thomas Mulcair led NDP.
The NDP showed in the last election that you don’t necessarily need a machine or good candidate in a riding to win.
The question is how will SD&SG react over the next few months and who will be the candidates for any of the major three parties as MP Guy Lauzon is expected to slither away to retirement.
