Trashy's World: PCPO leadership race

I’m obviously NOT a supporter of Ontario’s PC Party, but rooting for Patrick Brown over Christine Elliott. The wise voters in our province have time and time again rejected the social conservatism that has been the hallmark of leaders like Hudak and Brown. Elliott would be a far greater barrier to another OLP government in . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: PCPO leadership race

The Liberal Scarf: What can the results of the last Ontario PC leadership race tell us about the current one? That Elliott could be hard to beat

Long-time readers will remember when I did some fairly in-depth coverage of the 2009 Ontario PC leadership race. I was reading over some blog posts from that era, bit of a trip down memory lane. I kind of forgot Hudak’s big selling point to grassroots conservatives was pledging to eliminate Human Rights Tribunals, Christine Elliott running on . . . → Read More: The Liberal Scarf: What can the results of the last Ontario PC leadership race tell us about the current one?

OPSEU Diablogue: Election 2014: Hudak’s view of health care limited to only doctors and nurses

Premier Kathleen Wynne probably had the best line on PC Leader Tim Hudak’s promise to cut 100,000 public sector jobs, suggesting he was “turning paycheques into pink slips.” Toronto Star columnist Martin Regg Cohn said the pledge to cut jobs … Continue reading →

OPSEU Diablogue: Injunction may help CCACs find more time to prepare for physiotherapy transfers

In some ways the injunction filed by the Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association of Ontario may have been a blessing in disguise. As of August 1st OHIP funding for these private clinics was to cease, their clients transferred to the Community Care … Continue reading →

OPSEU Diablogue: Confused and inconsistent PC position on health generates a big “huh?”

The Ontario Tories may want to look further than Tim Hudak for reasons behind their by-election losses over the summer. True, the PC leader consistently ranks behind the other two major party leaders in leadership polls, but give the voters credit … Continue reading →

Politics and its Discontents: With Some Ambivalence

In light of the unspeakable tragedy in Connecticut yesterday, in some ways it seems manifestly disrespectful to write a regular blog post today. Yet, to become paralyzed with despair over the evil in the world is not the answer either. Far better it is, in my mind, to try to confront and combat the evil . . . → Read More: Politics and its Discontents: With Some Ambivalence

OPSEU Diablogue: Tory health care white paper elicits a big ho-hum

If the Tories thought that yesterday’s new health care white paper was likely to change the channel on the byelection defeats, they likely woke up this morning disappointed. Despite health care’s long standing ranking as the number one issue among … Continue reading →

The Equivocator: Tracey Weiler Runs Away From Tim Hudak

Is that a rooster crowing I hear? Yesterday Tracey Weiler, the “Progressive” Conservative candidate in Kitchener-Waterloo ran as far as she possibly could away from Tea-Party Tim Hudak.

First in an interview with CTV Kitchener:

Then during the Waterloo Record Debate:

It is understandable that Ms. Weiler would run away from Tea-Party* Tim. . . . → Read More: The Equivocator: Tracey Weiler Runs Away From Tim Hudak

The Wandering Joe: If a Tree falls on twitter, does it make a sound?

I wanted to wait on this particular post for a little while to let peoples’ emotions die down a bit, but I would like to write about the death of Jack Layton. I’m not going to write about the man himself mind you, but rather the remarkable response to his passing. I will say this . . . → Read More: The Wandering Joe: If a Tree falls on twitter, does it make a sound?
