$2.5 million of tax dollars offered up by Kathleen Wynne to union goons as protection money and not a thing to be done about it.
Business as usual here in Ontario? Definitely. About to become the new normal for Canadians, with our new government? Best believe it.
And if you think you can avoid it by moving to wherever, good luck, because this kind of racketeering is how progressives are going to take over every jurisdiction in the known world.
We could stop them, you know.
We could master third party advertising and match them blow for blow. We could powerfully stand for resource development in every province instead of sitting around waiting for Alberta and the oil industry to set the tone. And we could reach out to people who don’t even know they are conservatives yet, such as #Gamergaters.
Oh, but no. You guys don't want to do that.
My fellow conservatives would rather call me a liberal on Facebook for daring to insinuate that we need to do things a little differently. You want to continue to blather about debts and deficits and double standards. Just keep right on chilling out in your safe spaces, talking about how all we need is a new leader, a fresh coat of paint and stick to talking about jobs and the economy and those third party groups won’t know what hit them.
Well, the PC Party of Ontario has spun on that merry-go-round for election cycle after election cycle, to the point where the people who run that party are in the business of losing elections, and business is good.
Let me tell you how it’s done.
The first thing you have to do after losing an election is rush blindly into a leadership race so you can get memberships and donations up. Better make sure all your front-runners are well-known and well-established and that their campaigns are managed by the same people who lost the last one.
Now whatever you do, don’t make this leadership race about new ideas. Nobody ever joined a party because they heard a new idea they liked. Instead, you create a cult of personality around your candidate. Brad Wall’s folksy Saskatchewan appeal is going to charm the pants off of voters in Quebec! Lisa Raitt will make women fall out of love with Trudeau because she herself is a woman! Michelle Rempel is under the age of 40, so the youth vote is good as hers!
Then, once you have a new leader, you have to make sure that new leader gets noticed. But how do you do that when the lamestream MSM is so horribly biased and the Liberals will just steal your ideas? Why, just focus like a laser on talking points and refuse to answer any questions, of course! This is what serious political people call “staying on message.”
“Staying on message” means you oppose everything the government does without offering any ideas on how you’d do things differently, but it also means you don’t listen to any suggestions from your base about things you should take a position on, because those people are idiots. By frantically trying not to piss anyone off, you piss everyone off and set the stage for an election where your platform and campaign is meant to appeal to some mythical centrist voter that doesn’t actually exist.
When you lose the election, you blame unions and the MSM and start all over again!
