CORNWALL Ontario – As some of our viewers know since living in this area I’ve taken a vow of non-partisan ship when it comes to politics.
I think we all should become Hyper Non Partisan. One election at a time, one candidate at a time knowing that no party or politician can be all things I personally have decided to choose one person at a time.
When PC leader Patrick Brown hit the scene I was open to his message. Clearly he was savvy and saying a lot of things that needed to be said and his victory over Christine Elliotte was truly remarkable, but sadly his promise of inclusion has been shattered.
It’s biggest example being right here. When I was approached by his team things went well. I did an interview with him and attended a few of his events. I even purchased a party membership (I did of all three parties for disclosure purposes).
Clearly Ms Wynne’s track record would suggest a clear change was needed, but that change had to be for the better.
Andrea Horwath is not enough of a change and simply has shown an ineptitude politically so the opportunity for Mr. Brown and his party was wide open.
The local riding association here in SD&G is a huge reason in why I am HNP. It’s corrupt, petty, ignorant and those are their good qualities. Mr. Brown, walked into that hornets nest and some communication was exchanged.
Sadly he was back in Cornwall Friday with no invite to the largest newspaper in the region. Over 20,000 people per month(based on Unique Viewers ISP numbers) read CFN at least one time. That’s nearly half of the city. Our audience outside of Cornwall usually is about 60% of our total so our reach is not tiny.
You would think a savvy political leader that has been treated fairly if not supportive would enforce his vision of inclusion? At least I would. I’m not personally offended. I’m used to the odd and freaky ways of politicians, but what a lost opportunity for Mr. Brown and his team.
What some don’t realize is that they simply are not snubbing or disrespecting yours truly. They disrespect the community and our viewers.
I don’t force people to read CFN. They choose to take that action for whatever reasons they may have.
Patrick Brown, by falling into Tim Hudak style politics in this riding is at best a stumble and at worst, the same old same old.
Ontario deserves better. I know I do.
