3 reasons why PC leadership vote process may be a trap for Doug Ford

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

The PC Party of Ontario saga began at an impromptu press conference with now ex-leader Patrick Brown denying allegations of sexual impropriety, and vowing business as usual.

But within hours of that presser, and with his own team deserting him en masse, Patrick was gone.

Now the race is on for a new leader of the PC party.

No doubt, the incredibly unpopular Premier Wynne couldn’t believe her luck seeing the PCs thrown into chaos less than five months before the election.

The potential candidates came in fast and curious then, two days before the convention rules were set, Doug “Let’s Make Ontario Great Again” Ford announced he’d be running, too.

And that’s where our saga stands today, but in addition to requiring an entry fee of $125K to run in the contest, it was announced that votes would be tallied electronically.

Does anyone see a problem here? Well, you should, and I’ll give you three reasons why.

In summary, with allegations of rampant ballot box fraud, rotten party brass, and vulnerability to outside infiltration — would you trust these political Keystone Kops to honestly and accurately tally the electronically-cast ballots?

Especially when it’s known that party elites are terrified of Doug Ford becoming leader.

Liza,

Really?

LOL.

Seriously, you need to work for the Doug Ford campaign.

So, you contract for them.

liza rosie,

I run my own business and quite sure that I am far beyond you in career and in life.

All you do is whine about awful Canada is. Maybe you need to look at yourself.

Because James you are not perceptive and can’t recognize the slow boil. You
know the story of the frog in the pot of water on a slow cook? Come to think of it, that is giving you far too much credit.
I think you see it, but you like it, welcome it even. You will probably sign up for brown shirt duty. Oh, you already have. Hopefully they will give you a pay raise at some point. Your pretty low level right now.

liza rosie,

Why has Canada been so great for me for decades. Why am I and millions of other Canadians not experiencing this “not okay” Canada that you speak of?

Canada hasn’t changed. You want it to change – that is the difference.

A lot of Canadians would vote for a candidate who had half the chutzpah that Trump has. Canadian politics could use a leader like that about now. We are in the fight of our life, and it involves all western Christian countries. The survival of our way of life depends on saying no to the globalist/islamic alliance. There is no other way. Most people don’t even realise that this globalist agenda is far far more involved that just economies. It is about one world order, and it is no longer a conspiracy theory, it is a fact. Not hard to see the evidence, just look abroad. Stop listening to msm. Search the internet. We have never had the ability to be this ‘woke’ yet so many people are still stubbornly or lazily, in the dark.
Canada is not okay right now.

James Leach,

This is Canada. Not America. Or didn’t you know that? Canada is to the left of Canada and Trump would never win here – Kellie Leitch learned that the hard way.

Stop looking to Trump as any indication for how things are in CANADA.

Jiminy! You’re spouting the same dumb@ssery that the left south of the border tried to use against Trump! Seriously, check your kaleidoscope, Ford has the province locked up if he can push by the boozoos in the PC caucus. 1 vote per member, that’s all it takes.

He may be able to take Wynne out, if he can drain the swamp in Queens Park, but he will only be a thorn in Justin’s side. I am hoping though, that it will kick start a change in this country and help get the pendulum to start swinging in the ‘right’ direction. We still need a strong federal conservative who is willing to drain the Ottawa swamp, and I’m not seeing one making any headway. It certainly is not Scheer, and he only has himself to blame. He is a sell out. Conservative Canadians are sick to the back teeth of sell outs. If he would stand up for us we would stand behind him. Sadly, I don’t see that happening.
commented 2018-02-05 14:01:17 -0500
I don’t know much about Ford but if he or whoever can take out The Clown Prince, Justin Mohammed Trudope and The Wicked Witch Wynne they will have my vote..

IMHO – Scheer doesn’t appear to be a TRUE PC. In fact, he appears (to me) to be a closet Lieberal.. Brown was more of the same.

Mike Krchnak,

You lose your shit constantly on here, which leads me to believe that you actually hate opposing view and want The Rebel to be your personal safe space to snuggle in with your fellow sheep.
commented 2018-02-05 02:08:43 -0500
Rather comical reading the resident leftist regressive fucktard trolls twist and conflate their version of reality. Or should i say, lack of reality. When ever these clowns start to leave post after post, you know they’re staring to lose there shit. Personally, i enjoy their idiocies, comic relief to say the least.
Keep it coming you clowns, we’re always in need of a good laugh.

Liza, we must remember that these trolls actually believe their own rhetoric, its the old adage of, one lies and the others swear by it.
Pathetic!

James go kiss Justins ass after he ignorantly told an injured vet that they have no money for them , meanwhile he hands out cash to scum and to other countries to fight phony global warming.

James Justin is a complete joke and Ford should not bother, why should he waste his damn time?

Your nuts. I guess your also blind and can’t count. I could say there were five there and you would say you only saw 3. It wouldn’t make any difference what the truth was.
You’ve got a bit of a problem, a nasty chip on your shoulde"

Which number did I count wrong? Horizontal (parallel to stage) or vertical (perpendicular)? What’s the actual number, then?
commented 2018-02-04 22:41:38 -0500
I am PC and like Doug Ford very much.
Ontario 905 liberals that I know also like him too! Holy Crap we have something in common !!! Awesome !!!

liza rosie,

You are so desperate for Ford to be PC leader for some fucked up reason, since he is a complete joke – that it has clouded for judgement. You see what you want to see and it’s wrong.

“looks like a pretty successful rally to me. The other candidates are a little slow off the mark. "

Still about 25 people wide, 10 rows deep. 200-250 people. Maybe 300 if you’re feeling generous. Same estimate as before. About 20 seconds into the video, they settle down , and the elevated perspective makes it easy to count.

ps – I counted the camera operators, including the one taking this video, in the 108 individuals I counted in the SAL picture.

Still missing 1200 people.

Auspicious start, Douggies’ making enemies of the rest of the party and lying already!

looks like a pretty successful rally to me. The other candidates are a little slow off the mark.

Dogs don’t bark at parked cars. To clarify for our rude Troll here I should have said, “this is you barking” I guess he missed the ‘woof’ reference in my previous comment. And don’t forget what happens to stupid dogs who chase cars James.
They all go the way of road kill eventually. Then the crow comes and what’s left after they’re finished is washed clean away with the rain, and not a trace of rotting carcass is left.

“Men like Doug Ford recognise what he truth looks like”

Indeed, His ability to lie is too great for it to be mere chance, he’s got to be actively evading it.

He’s “denigrated” for many reasons.

But, let’s consider the Apollo story. When he was councillor, he pushed to get Apollo, an off-brand toiletry manufacturer, out of some fines because they were dumping chemicals into the sewers that they shouldn’t have been. Oh, and Apollo was a client of Deco, Doug’s sticker factory. Which is to say, conflict of interest – and undeclared.

That’s why. It’s way closer to actual corruption than anything Wynne has been accused of. You’ll call it “fake news”, but it was verified by the integrity commissioner. It’s not the only time it happened. Who’s he working for? Whoever’s got the fattest wallet, apparently.

Much like Trump’s wall, he’ll offer you baubles so you don’t notice, and maybe even halfheartedly call it “fake news”. But he knows, as I do, as the rest of us do, that you don’t care, as long as it’s your side being corrupt, it’s great.

liza rosie,

I am sure you are a dog, but that s not what we are talking about here. Why do you give a pass to Ford’s corruption?

liza rosie,

You are so delusional if you actually believe that.

How can you ignore the Ford corruption and elitism?
