I’m afraid I couldn’t support Rona, although I think she has done a decent enough job as interim leader and steered a steady course. However, when you are asked to clarify comments made on CBC, twice and refuse to respond, then I get the feeling that you may think your bigger than the party and not answerable to the grassroots, the very people who will vote for you. If you can’t answer the questions asked now, what’s it going to be like if she was elected leader. PM Harper always had a moment, and will always have my deepest respect. I wish Rona no ill will, but when you don’t feel its necessary to explain yourself to a paid up member of the party, then I have a problem. The other thing, is I’m not exactly sure where Rona stands on social issues outside of women’s issues I mean.

RONA AMBROSE is perfect for the interm situation because it invites the Liberal bullies to make fools of themselves, for the world to see
The pm INCDOOGE imam would not have done his mincing speed walk with a GORDIE HOWE elbow to a woman, had there been a REAL MAN IN THE OPPOSITION

Rona Ambrose and Michelle Rempel sought to hijack the CPC for the CINO agenda. They were discovered. But should anyone believe they will not try again? Why should anyone believe that the CINOs will not manipulate the leadership nomination process as they intend to?

Rona Ambrose has proved herself to be a CINO by playing Nerfball with JT. Hoping to score a post-career appointment, she had made life easier for the Liberals. She cannot be trusted and any movement to draft her for the leadership just proves how far the CPC has swung to left.

I agree with Steve Hicken, Rona is too “nice” … way too nice to be party leader. In my opinion even as interim party leader she in not being bold enough. She is not standing up to the Liberal and calling BS.

Her husband wore a tee shirt to the convention which said, “SHE’S NOT RUNNING!” So I’m assuming Rona didn’t want to run. I wonder what that means exactly, that Rempel and Ambrose intervened in the process?

I do not think she wanted to be the leader , Rona is too nice a lady and the party does not need nice
