Eve Adams changed parties, now cities, to run for Liberals

Brian LilleyArchive

She crossed the floor to sit with Justin Trudeau's Liberals, now Eve Adams is crossing from Oakville to Toronto's west end to try and get a new seat in the House of Commons.

Adams, who was elected as a Conservative MP in 2011 for Mississauga-Brampton South, was dropped by the Tories after she was disqualified for running in a Burlington, Ontario area riding over irregularities in the nomination race. In February Adams switched to the Liberals and now wants to be a Toronto MP, taking on Finance Minister Joe Oliver.

In an exclusive interview with The Toronto Star, the Liberal Party's paper of record, Adams explains that toppling Oliver is the best thing she can do for her new party. She's gone so far as to start looking for a home in the area and signing up her son for soccer in the area. 

“You need to face the traffic congestion residents face. You need to run into people at the grocery store so they can offer you insights and advice. I think it’s absolutely critical. So I’m very excited and very much looking forward to moving to Eglinton-Lawrence with my family,” she said Sunday, her son by her side.

Adams has tried to make the switch to the Liberals all about her opposition to the Conservative family tax cut plan, which includes income splitting for families with kids under 18, calling it mean spirited, she once campaigned on the issue, even running election ads on the plan.

SO taxing total family income rather than individuals is a bad idea? So I work and my wife is at home – I earn $150k a year and pay roughly 44% tax in Ontario yet with two parents working making the same amount of money they pay 34% and they need day care and supported services? Tis has to be a blonde joke… perhaps she should just stay home and not spread the disease to other areas! Dumb Blonde!

The girl you are really going to love to hate. Or, one of Trudeau’s girls.

Is there a blonde joke in this story?
commented 2015-04-20 20:14:14 -0400
She will fit right in.
commented 2015-04-20 18:30:30 -0400
Just like the proverbial Nelly on the bell. She swings to the left and she swings to the right.

Petulant Eve is delusional to think she can beat Joe Oliver. I feel sorry for her son. He must feel so embarrassed by his crazy mother.
commented 2015-04-20 17:04:21 -0400
Danielle Smith, sorry I sent send to early.
commented 2015-04-20 17:03:14 -0400
I see another Daniel Smith story happening come election time.
commented 2015-04-20 17:01:02 -0400
So if she doesn’t win in her new riding, where she moving then? Eve Adams, coming to a riding near you…..
commented 2015-04-20 16:21:45 -0400
Just another Totalitarian controller to block from getting into our lives and pocket book and taxing us to poverty!
commented 2015-04-20 16:18:17 -0400
Conservative one day. Liberal the next. EI?
commented 2015-04-20 15:45:16 -0400
Today’s Conservative roadkill is tomorrow’s liberal champion – just ask Kim Campbell – she knows the process.
commented 2015-04-20 15:25:46 -0400
i believe that she makes a perfect liberal..

‘Mean spirited’ is taking away the tax benefits from families because you want them to put their children in union operated day care instead of the families deciding how to use their money. the seem to forget that the money belongs to the tax payers and not the entitlement class of elites and bureaucrats. So I suggest that Eve Adams and JT/LPC along with the NDP are the mean spirited.
commented 2015-04-20 15:03:57 -0400
I would compare Eve Adams to the back-stabbing Danielle Smith, but that would be an insult to backstabbers everywhere.
commented 2015-04-20 15:00:54 -0400
How do you change political philosophies from Conservative to Liberal?. Another political clown.
commented 2015-04-20 14:23:42 -0400
I think the communist party is in need of a candidate ,maybe the soccer will be better
