Ford needs to “delete” hardcore Liberals parachuted into PC Party

David MenziesMission Specialist


From the moment he announced his run for leader of the PC Party, Doug Ford was clear that, unlike in the dark old days of Patrick Brown, the party would be accountable to the grassroots when it came to candidate nominations.

So what happened on Saturday?

A directive was issued by Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives that no fewer than 11 candidates would be appointed in various ridings.

What happened to being beholden to the grassroots? What happened to the democratic process?

Ford has publicly stated that due to the “mess” he inherited from the bumbling Brown and given that the election is less than two months away, the party had to move fast.

But, while these statements are undeniably true, democracy rushed is democracy denied, and now we learn that some of the appointed candidates are unapologetic Liberals!

Watch as I bring you a few cases that resemble the sort of rancid garbage that comes straight from the Patrick Brown playbook.

Ford needs to delete these appointments and let the people in these ridings decide who they want as their representatives.

I agree with you David, Ford needs to follow through on his promises and let the people decide who they want to represent them. What is he thinking???

David, I 100% agree with your view but I feel there is a critical element missing from your analysis that lead to the appointments.
We’re at the end of April, the election is just over a month away, June 7th. These ridings have run out of time for leadership races. I attended my leadership convention just last night in Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas, and feel the candidate has barely enough time to hit the ground running and might be 30,000 door knocks behind the competition – a fat cat legacy Liberal who believes he is entitled to my riding. I think it’s about expediency, not any nefarious reason. I give Doug Ford more credit than that – hope you can as well.

Get ready to see Patrick Brown’s traitorous mug back in action.

I donated money because I supported and voted for Ford. Now, sadly I’m starting to have my doubts. Here we go again, same old same old. I’m starting to think, maybe Tanya was the better choice.
You would have thought that Doug would know better, seems he’s just another Liberal Left Wing Tool.

Absolutely right David!
