The social conservatives in the Niagara Peninsula had a surprise the other day for Ontario Conservative Leader Patrick Brown. It was not the surprise he wanted. He expected his pal party president Rick Dykstra to easily win the nomination in the provincial electoral district of Niagara West-Glanbrook. Dykstra was defeated.

We can admit it now but could not when he was Premier of Ontario, Bill Davis is a decent guy. As much as he likes to pose as the bastion of the right, Bill has always liked people and is a caring, compassionate person. If he was much younger and leader of Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives […] . . . → Read More: Babel-on-the-Bay: How far Bill Davis’ party has fallen.

… On the Ottawa Orleans race… And man, Andrew Lister? The PC candidate? He’s as rude, dogmatic and boorish as his colleagues. Disgusting. And why does he keep grabbing his fingers? Is it his thing? Weird. This guy fits in with the Hudak and Matt Young model of incompetence. (1) Trashy, Ottawa, Ontario
Predicting election results is a mug’s game. Any prediction of a result outside one’s own riding relies on an analysis of someone else’s polling results. And these have been, um, a wee bit unreliable lately. Do YOU see a Wildrose government in Alberta? Nope. So I’m sticking to my riding for now – Ottawa South. . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Ottawa South 2014 – John Fraser deserves the MPP gig
…wrt the Highway Traffic Act? Cuz that’s how it looked to me in my ‘hood this aft. A Mr. Matt Young van was thinking itself Ferrari-worthy on a F1 circuit… yet it was a residential street in Ottawa.

Or maybe the “Harris-Hudak Conservatives”, hmmm? In desperation, Hudak and his merry men have taken to referring to the OLP as the “McGuinty-Wynne Liberals”. I for one find this consistent with the make-believe world that the OPC seems to have found comfort in. Dalton and Kathleen are joined at the hip. They are as one. . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: How does the “Harper-Hudak Conservatives” sound, Timmie?
Well, there ya go. Got a call from school that my 7 year old son wasn’t feeling great.

It seems that the leaders of all three poltical parties in the province of Ontario sense that voters want change. Premier Wynne, leading a minority Liberal government, was rejected by voters in the two byelections, but says change is wanted: Real Change Wynne?

I don’t often “recycle” posts. Yes, I am lazy, but what’s the point of a blog if you just re-post old stuff?

When writing about the ‘Dump the Dummy’ campaign among Ontario Conservatives a couple days ago, we could hardly imagine the Tories having any choice. It gives you serious pause though when you find out who are the people leading the charge to get rid of Ontario Leader Timmy Hudak.

Tim Hudak, leader of Ontario’s opposition Progressive Conservatives, released a policy white paper this week, outlining his party’s extremist plans for the province if his useless party ever manages to slide its hands into the political cookie jar.

… Ontar-i-ar-i-o today. The Premier is doing his damnedest to get his majority government… but, as I read it, he won’t get it. At least not now. Vaughn is a no-brainer.

Great commentary from The Globe and my favourite part: “At the same time, voters will have to decide what they make of today’s Americanized Conservatives as represented by Mr. Harper, Mr. Hudak and Toronto Mayor Rob Ford – all men who yearn for a simpler, long-vanished society that no longer represents today’s Canada.” I for . . . → Read More: Edwin Current: I Do Not Want Canada to be Americanized!

I for one do not want our fine country to resemble our neighbours to the south. As much as I respect and admire them and look at them as brothers and sisters I don’t want anything to do with their government or policies.
Hope you are having a great weekend

Woo hoo! Stevo has been denied that so-called trifecta that he dreamed about! The most laughable thing about this is that it was likely one of his fishing buddies, Rob Ford, that tilted this one into McGuinty’s column. But crap, 49.2% turnout? That is very disappointing.
