I fear I might annoy some of my True-Blue readership here but I need to convey my disappointment with last night’s Progressive Conservative leadership results.
It’s not that I dislike Doug Ford as a person, but I truly do fear that he will give Wynne and friends so much ammunition for attack ads; whether deserved or not. Will we be able to get rid of this dreadful Liberal government that’s been ruining our province for the last 15 years?
Also the P.C. Party is obviously severely divided. The results were incredibly close and apparently Christine Elliott won the popular vote. In a strange sense I can now understand how Hillary supporters felt on the night of the last U.S. election.
Having said all that, I will work through my feelings of disappointment and do my best to get back on board the unity train for the sake of the party and province.
It might just take some time.
March 17 Update:
Starting to feel a bit more optimistic. It’s been a busy week with not much time to do more than scan headlines, but from what I’m seeing this Ontario election could be quite interesting.
