Social conservative Tanya Granic Allen was Doug Ford’s kingmaker in the PC leadership race.
If Tanya hadn’t thrown her hat in the ring leading to most of her supporters shifting their support to Doug on second ballot, Christine Elliott would be PC Party leader today.
Ford was grateful for Tanya’s support then but now that the Liberals, aided by the useful idiots in the Media Party dredged up comments she made several years ago to claim she’s a homophobe and an Islamophobe, it’s back to “what have you done for me lately” PC politics.
Just like that, Ford’s kingmaker was deemed damaged goods and presto, she’s yesterday’s news.
Granic Allen was sacrificed on the altar of political correctness, but if dredging up comments from many moons ago that now don’t pass the PC PC sniff test is the new normal, who else is about to walk that progressive plank?
