Premier Wynne blinked and has officially delayed PC leader Patrick Brown’s first opportunity to win a seat and sit at Queen’s Park.
Normally it’s a courtesy to allow a leader of a party to gain their seat. Delaying a by election is usually a sign of nastiness or fear.
In Wynne’s case it may be both. Brown’s campaign, supported largely by Federal Harper Conservatives took the provincial wing of the party by storm with Brown knocking off favorite Christine Elliott.
Brown’s campaign steam rolled and gained momentum leading to a first ballot victory.
Ms Wynne blamed the Federal election for waiting to call a by election, but that rings hollow to many.
What do you think dear CFN viewers? Is Ms Wynne being punk? Is she afraid of Brown? You can post your comments below.
