New Year’s wish for Ontario politics: Don’t snatch defeat from the jaws of victory

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

The original Christmas message was "peace, good will toward men," and while I won't claim to be an angel, my wish for Ontario politics in 2017 is similar: I want peace in Ontario’s conservative ranks, a healing of the divisions that have surfaced in the last year.

With a little under 18 months to go until the next provincial election, the need for peace is paramount for those that want Kathleen Wynne to be defeated.

Watch as I explain why this is needed, and offer up some advice to Patrick Brown.

I believe it is fair to say that a politician identifying as a social conservative in all likelihood is also a fiscal conservative, that is, 100% conservative. However, for someone identifying as a fiscal conservative, the likelihood of being a social conservative is uncertain and dubious. A progressive conservative is just as likely to be soft on fiscal conservatism. Thus, why are the conservatives like Rona Ambrose, Michelle Rempel and Michael Chong seeing a shift to the left as being a winning formula fir conservatives to be elected? The ‘progressive’ voters will vote for the true ‘progressives’, the NDP and the Liberals.

Since Brown really is not Conservative at all, my prediction is Wynne will win again.

The Ontario Conservative party needs a real true blue Conservative to lead it, not a pansy wannabe Liberal Lite.

Just imagine how prosperous and free Canada would be with true blue provincial and federal Conservatives running the country coast to coast to coast? A guy can dream, can’t he?

Wouldn’t Brown need the vote of social cons to get a majority?

JAN G….Sorry but I must differ from you on one point. Brown and Wynne are different. Brown has a pussy and Wynne has a dick. Other than that you could probably toss a blanket over the two of them. Someone should introduce Brown to the business end of a baseball bat over his stance on taxing carbon. That should be enough alone for the Ontario conservatives to turf that lame brain while they still have at least a bit of time.

The Conservatives will win simply because anyone would win at this point. Brown will then throw it back at social conservatives even more by claiming he did it without them.
If he can turn his back on social cons, then he’ll do the very same thing to Ontario that libs are doing and kissing Trudeau’s derriere to get his approval and attention.
There will be no difference between Brown and Wynne.

There is still 18 months before the next elections that gives the PC Progressive Conservatives to change their name to Enlightened Conservatives and get rid of Patrick Brown he has no idea how to run the economy or how to get Ontario back to a have province from the current have not province. The progressive conservative should drop the progressive from their name and up hold true conservative policies. Patrick Brown is not a conservative the more I listen to him the more his name is right. He is a brown-noser because he is routing around in Liberal mud.

Yes, what the Left does to continually impose their will even when they are not in office is something that if attempted by the right, they would scream bloody murder. US and Canada left act much in the same dictatorial manner. I do so much despise the socialists/left. They only hold to democracy when it suits them.

Peter, you said in right. Spot on!
Amos, please vote. Even a bad Conservative leader is better than a bad Liberal leader. Liberals are pompous arrogant assholes. Look at what we have now in the Federal government. I’d prefer a lame duck Conservative than the Disney land ideals of these nitwits.
commented 2017-01-01 15:52:59 -0500
Amos Moro you may as well not , Ontario is lost and no party there is willing to do what is needed. They are both worried about themselves and nothing else.

ooops sorry about the typing mistake.

Peter Netterville right on the money about Justin, he is the one spreading the division and fear. And of course his speech only calls for one group to be subservient, if anyone else lashes out and claims to be marginalized and scared then he of course Justin is all for division and fear. What a phony POS he is.

I’ll be 64 years old this coming Sept. and have never missed voting in a federal or Ontario provincial election but as it stands, right mow, I will not be voting in the next provincial election. There is no way I can bring myself to cast a vote for flip flop Patrick Brown. He doesn’t seem capable of making a decision on anything and sticking to it. He would be far better suited for Wynne’s or Trudeau’s Lieberal parties. Patrick, grow a spine or you will easily snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and the Lieberals won’t even have to campaign. You will do it all for them.

Justin Turdeau’s speech about ‘Fear and Division’ – F*cking idiot!
The only thing I fear is that the asshole remains as pm day after day.
As for division – I would love to divide Canada into the West and Turdeau’s Quebec.
I hope that 2017 will see Trudeau put down as the mangy dog that he is along with Wynne and Notely.

Lying, corruption, entitlement, arrogance, narcissism, self-serving-the list of liberal values is a long one. As I said before, conservatives are held to a much higher standard because their values are set to a much higher standard. For liberals the bar is set very low because everybody already knows that they are all of the above.
commented 2017-01-01 12:28:41 -0500
We are heading for some nasty times, people can’t afford their hydro now and it is continuing to head south, whatever is going to happen now that this carbon tax (cap and trade) has kicked in and people won’t be able to afford to heat their homes, somebody better come up with some answers for the people.

CM said, “What Obama is doing is preparing the way for continuous law-fare from the regressives over the next four years, because they will use these executive orders as their precedent.”

Bill Elder-I agree. Really disappointing situation. Everything about Brown screams liberal plant, somebody’s puppet or outright stupid and the rest of the party eunuchs are no better.

I just came home this morning from a New Year’s Eve party. The price of gas yesterday was 102.9 and this morning it ranged from 109.8 to 113.9. Patrick, give up your support of this life-sucking carbon TAX and you will be elected easily.

Peter,

Can you imagine how apoplectic the MSM would have been if either Bush had made policy decisions on the order of Arctic Drilling and denying Jewish Jerusalem to Jews? Or if Harper had stacked the Senate in his last 2-3 weeks as was his right?

What Obama is doing is preparing the way for continuous law-fare from the regressives over the next four years, because they will use these executive orders as their precedent.

The PCs could win a landslide by default as voters turf this substandard government, simply because people have had enough Liberal-globalist kleptonomics. All PCs have to do is give voters a simple reason to make them the replacement, voters are ready to toss the Liberals under the bus they just need a reason to park a vote with the next government.

Brown could win on a single issue – lower electricity costs – simple , sweet, and unassailable by the libs because they horribly mismanaged the utility, allowing their cronies to pillage the public coffers and inflate costs – victory is assured with that one simple election issue.

The problem is, I don’t even see something this politically cogent from Brown and the PCs – they have been so silent on the e-energy costs, I’m beginning to wonder if they are working for the sane globalist profiteers Wynne does.

I just saw a headline on the New York Times, “Obama’s Last Days: Aiding Transition, but Erecting Policy Roadblocks”

Isn’t that just the way of the left, do all they can to force their will on the people even after the people rejected them … kind like changing all the locks before you leave and taking the new keys with you, but more insidious and arrogant.
commented 2017-01-01 11:08:15 -0500
Brown was just a bench warmer when the C.P.C. was in power, and it must have been for a reason.

WENDY HOFMAN, “Could it be that because the other candidate is pro-life that she was not the Party favourite or was there another reason.” There can be no other reason as Brown has declared that people like that were unwelcome in a party that he leads, that is, “modern, inclusive, pragmatic and progressive”.

In Burlington he courted the social conservatives to get elected. The Riding has just elected a candidate. In an Appeal to Rick Dykstra, there were 42 nomination and election irregularities listed by primary sources. A hearing was requested and never granted. Simply a phone call and follow up letter that basically stated all the statements of irregularities were not true. How did the Appeal committee ever come to that conclusion without speaking to primary sources and investigating? Could it be that because the other candidate is pro-life that she was not the Party favourite or was there another reason?

Like most resolutions, this one as well will fall away as long as Brown, a CINO, is at the helm.

brown is a Liberal ,I will not vote till he is removed

Justine Truedope’s New Year speech was about taking a stand against ‘fear and division’.

‘fear and division’ is defined by the Lieberals as anything they disagree with.
