PC Leadership Candidate Patrick Brown Comes to Cornwall Ontario – FEB 16, 2015

patrick brown ramada FEB 14 2015CFN – Progressive Conservative Leadership candidate Patrick Brown fought off snow and brutal cold Saturday and attended a breakfast meeting at the Ramada Inn.

It was a surprising large crowd considering the brutal weather conditions, but significant in that the Conservative MP, MPP, and Mayor of Cornwall were not in attendance although our MPP’s executive assistant was present.

Mr. Brown’s message is refreshing.  He points out the failure of the party under former Leader Tim Hudak and suggested that the “clique” of leadership of his party has led to multiple losses to the Liberal’s who won a majority in the last election after support crumbled when Hudak talked about cutting 100,000 public jobs.

There was a certain irony in the crowd who while supportive are many of the exact people that support the “clique”.

Maybe PC locals are changing their views?  Maybe some were simply curious?

Roxane Villeneuve RobertsonThe meeting was organised by Roxane Villeneuve Robertson who was one of the victims of the Hudak campaign losing to MPP Grant Crack in her riding.  While it was her first attempt to run for MPP she is the daughter of long time MPP and Minister Noble Villeneuve.

Mr. Brown faces quite the challenge as Christine Elliot is still favored to win the race.    The race has been a feisty one with Patrick pointing out connections between the other candidates and the Hudak leadership while some have criticized him for leaving the door open for he himself to stay in Federal waters if he doesn’t win the leadership nomination.

Our MPP Jim McDonell had cast his support for Lisa MacLeod who has since dropped from the race to mull a run in Federal politics in John Baird’s riding.   He has not publicly signaled who he will throw his support behind.

Patrick also pointed out the Cornwall connection in his campaign as Dale Hawerchuk who played for the Cornwall Royals is actively a part of his campaign.

Mr. Brown sat next to South Stormont Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart who was wearing a Brown pin before speaking, and herself condemned several times during the last term by the Integrity Commissioner, and is facing her own legal travails.  South Stormont Councilor Dave Smith was also in attendance as well as former Cornwall Councilor Glen G Grant.

CFN also wishes riding president Judy Bobka well with her health challenges.   She was not in attendance at the event.

Who Will Win the Ontario PC Leadership Race?

Why is it an issue that our Conservative MP, MPP and Mayor of Cornwall were not in attendance? Perhaps they had other commitments or perhaps they don’t support Patrick Brown.

Because hugger. He wants you to think there’s some type of corruption ,conspiracy or clique going on. So easy to read. That’s exactly my thought. Why is it an issue.

It’s a little too late now, but I’m sure Brown is trying to keep his hard-core social conservative views under wraps for the duration of this campaign. Every Lib and Dipper in the province would be over the moon if he won the leadership, but it ain’t gonna happen. I think the Cons want to win the next election, and they won’t with a 36 year old clone of Stockwell Day leading them.

Furtz -“I’m sure Brown is trying to keep hard-core social conservative views under wraps” – and what would those be? All I heard was about jobs, economy,cutting read tape for businesses to able prosper in Ontario. Furtz, are you against such ideas? The Liberals say the same thing, while they empty our pockets. Now if Mr. Brown spoke out against the Liberals sex ed. curriculum or one’s hope to save the family from divorce,same sex marriage, prostitution, porn,and pedophilia,etc. And let us not forget all the sandals of billions wasted by the Liberals. How about some justice here? Not a… Read more »

Newton, are you incapable of performing net search? His voting record and social conservative views aren’t hard to find. Here’s just one example. He attended a “pro-family” (code for anti-gay) rally with one of Canada’s best known bible-thumpers, “Dr.” Charles McVety.
Need I say more?

So, what’s the scoop with….Furtz….Hugger1 etc.? Real names?

“Newton, are you incapable of performing net search?” – it’s more fun to see how things get filtered through your liberal/carnal mind set. Thanks for doing the leg work. So you are not pro-family? Are you for the promotion of pedophilia in our public school systems? How about polygamy? Do you believe sex workers should be unionized, and pay taxes? How about we all allow Sharia to become the law of the land? Would that float your boat? Here is a link for a sample of Wynne’s pedophilia agenda – The 2010 program was objectionable to parents because of the… Read more »

Just reminding everyone of some of the real issues in this up coming PC leadership race!

There are only three in the leadership race. Two of them are from the ultra-right Tea-party faction of the party and are being endorsed by the usual nut-bars and fanatical religious outfits. If either of them, Brown or McNaughton, are elected leader, the Cons will remain in the wilderness for many years to come. And there is Christine Elliott who seems to have a brain and has the support of the vast majority of the party.

Furtz – The question remains to be answered: “Have any grandchildren? Is this what you want for them?” I put this question to all the viewers?

Sorry Newton. My reply was blocked. You’ll have to use your imagination.

There is no leader at all who has my moral ideology at all and I will vote for none of them at all. The morals today are in the toilet and flushed down to the sewer. I am very hard line and none come anywhere close to what I believe in.

Jules, if you don’t like any of the party leaders in Ontario or Canada you could always move to where they aren’t given a choice of whom their leader is. I hear Cuba, North Korea and Russia are beautiful at this time of the year.

Hm! Russia sounds kind of nice when I do like Pres. Putin and what he stands for on gays, etc. We are Christians and we don’t believe in this immorality. I can say honestly that I respect and like this man and his views. The reality is that if you think that you are truly free in this world think again because nobody is ever truly free.

Furtz

Yes Jules, the whole world loves Putin these days. We need more leaders like him. LOL ROLF ROLF… It’s always good to have at least one identifiable group of people to hate and persecute. It makes people feel better about themselves. ROLF ROLF etc…

Coming to Ontario schools in our area – thanks to Premier Wynne “California Parents Outraged to Learn Second Graders Are Watching Porn on School-Issued iPads”.

PTN….Ontario is not California.

That’s right Hugger1, we now have more debt than California – thanks to Dalton and his Liberating friends!

Newton, does this mean that you’re thinking of moving back to your home country and state? You sure don’t seem to like living up here even though you chose to immigrate to Canada.

Yes Ontario is a great deal more in debt than California. People are leaving California by the herds and the same with Ontario – there isn’t much left here. Wait until the US dollar goes down and watch Canada’s money go with it and the rest of the world and we will experience a depression like the 30’s again. The liberal/fiberals are no good at all and yes they sure put us in this horrible position.
