CORNWALL Ontario – Politics are a fascinating fact of our lives. They embrace the truly worst of human nature and rarely our best.
It’s a blood sport. The results impact all of our lives in so many ways.
After the utter historic failure of Tim Hudak the Ontario Conservatives headed out to find a new leader.
The odds on favorite was Christine Elliott. A savvy intelligent politician with deep roots in her party and the Canadian Political scene.
I have to admit that I enjoyed my interview with her, especially compared to that nasty Andrea Horwath and even nastier Kathleen Wynne.
She certainly would ensure that Ms Wynne would not ever have a majority again and perhaps even not be Premier.
Patrick Brown is a career politician with deep connections to the Harper Conservatives. He’s used Social media and simply out worked and out maneuvered Elliot during the campaign. Stunts like bringing in Wayne Gretzky to his campaign and his out reach to immigrant communities have actually had an impact. (sadly)
From a low profile he’s turned the leadership into a race and may in fact win.
As a voter I became hyper non partisan a few years ago. After interviewing both Brown and Elliott I actually signed up to the Party, but sadly our local Conservative Riding association is utterly corrupt and insane.
Well ignorant would be a better term, with people like Glen Grant and our MPP Jim McDonell who still is stinging over his pratfalls during his term in office such as suggesting that Dalton McGuinty was behaving like a Nazi which got him in hot water. Our MPP was upset when I explained that using the above photo was visually expressing what he said verbally to many. He did apologize to Ontario’s premier at the time but seems to have held a grudge against yours truly.
Frankly the behavior of our local RA is akin to how they accuse Liberals of behaving….
Sharing about a recent local Riding Association event that I was blocked from attending turned quite a few voters off. Sometimes you have to wonder which ideals a politician or group really stand for when you witness this type of behavior?
As a HNP voter my chad is available to the candidate/party that best represents me election by election. I personally don’t feel Ms Wynne should be in office and frankly I think she and her party should be properly investigated by police for some of their hi jinks including my false police charges which I finally have been cleared of. (that’s for another story)
Sunday I will head down to the Ramada and cast my vote, because each vote does count.
