Patrick Brown on Wynne fundraising scandals: “Bad policy was bought, and everyone in Ontario is paying for it”

Brian LilleyArchive

Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario leader Patrick Brown sat down me to talk about the five OPP investigations currently underway regarding Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne's government.

Not every scandal rises to the level that requires a police investigation, though. We also discuss the latest example, one I reported on yesterday:

That Liberal government staffers directed people who wanted to lobby minsters to attend Liberal Party fundraisers instead.

A provincial election is over a year away, but we still talk about whether or not Ontarians are finally ready for change.

If you’re willing to throw the election over a single issue, especially one which is not the definitive issue of the day, then you deserve whatever’s coming.

Brown is after the centrist vote. It’s really that simple. People are frustrated with the Liberal party itself, not its policies. The social conservative, climate change denier vote is something they can take for granted no matter what they do, it’s localized in ridings the PCPO is almost guaranteed to win anyway. They’re after the suburban swing vote which has less patience for far right policies. Brown actually has a decent chance of winning there.

To quote SHEBEL RAJ:- “His job is to WIN..”…OK, I must admit I am watching this unfold from far off British Columbia, but just what HAS HE WON since being elected PC party leader??…

Doesn’t take much for Patrick Browns 2-faced supporters to turn on him . You guys are like bloody Vipers. . His job is to WIN.

Patrick Brown is the best Conservative candidate the Ontario Liberals can come up with. I’m not interested and his globalism stripes are showing. Now that I know he is bought, as a Conservative I will not support him or my local representative who pretends to identify as a Conservative. Yes, the Liberals will win again. but at least they warn us before they rape our ass!

For the love of human decency, moral integrity, and basic dignity and honour…….get rid of that disgusting, evil perverted monster Kathleen Wynne! Throw the mendacious, vicious bitch out, Ontario.
How did you ever elect her into power (with a majority) in the first place?

Hard to listen to a politician like Brown (an advocate of climate change by the way) talk about “accountability” and “crossing ethical lines”, a politician who courted social conservatives for their support to get himself elected as PC leader, and then afterwards has turned his back on them! He selfrighteously talks about peoples’ image of politicians being diminished, when he is a contributor! Brian, how can you describe Brown as a “free market” person like yourself, when Brown goes along with a state-imposed (in line with socialist Naomi Klein’s Leap Manifesto) uneconomical climate change policy?

“Perhaps if you redirected your energy towards showing him your support, he might surprise you. "

He has surprised me enough already, EILEEN, thanks. I’ll tell you how.

Carbon taxes – just like the premise for covering Ontario with windmills and panels – are based on the lie that CO2 is harmful and must be reduced. By supporting a carbon tax, Brown has effectively nutted himself as far as stopping the windmill and solar panel madness.

If he hadn’t thought about that out before he made his statement, then he’s simply stupid. If he had figured it out and said it anyway, then he’s just another puke of a politician more concerned about votes than stopping the rot in Ontario.

“Bad policy was bought, and everyone in Ontario is paying for it” -PB

Uh yeah – selling access to government and influence peddling are ILLEAGAL. Where is the opposition swearing out a private investigation and running a citizen’s prosecution – look it up Patrick, YOU can jail this skank – DO IT! Or leave the room

EILEEN MCRAE: If Brown would wake up and denounce carbon taxes and the false man made climate change garbage, I think you would see a vast increase in support. You shame us for being critical of Brown. He has indicated he is on the side of a carbon tax. So you want us not to be critical of Brown. I guess what you are saying is elect Brown so we can have more of the same. If he mans up and and CORRECTS his stance on the climate hoax, the support will be there.

DJBT et al

When a populace has no faith in its opposition leaders, as evidenced by many of the snide comments re Patrick Brown, how do you expect anything to get accomplished? Shame on those be critical of Mr. Brown. Perhaps if you redirected your energy towards showing him your support, he might surprise you.
commented 2016-07-28 09:20:24 -0400
Holy Mackerel, Brian! Where’d ya find Waldo?

If you ever manage to speak with him again, tell him I’m not going to vote for him…but it’s nothing personal. I’m not going to vote for any politician who doesn’t have the guts and the honesty to stand up and call out this foolish “climate change” narrative for the scam that it is.

commented 2016-07-28 05:24:58 -0400
I agree with BILL ELDER… It is the “nuts” factor that Patrick Brown evidently lacks… There have been dozens and dozens of cases since he ascended to the leadership role for the Ontario PCs where he should have had Winnie The Poo on the ropes, or facing a jail term, but it never happened… Of course there has been collusion of the leftie Ontario news media and the bought and paid for OPP, but it is now evident he “doesn’t have a pair” to do the job… Pity…However there is an election coming… Which may be “academic”, since those living within eyesight of the CN Tower evidently rule the whole damn province…

Ontario is going down the toilet – financial collapse – and all you assholes out there that voted for this pig Wynne get to pay for the damage she’s done.

Open up your wallets assholes – the Wynne the financial rapist has barely scratched the surface.
commented 2016-07-27 20:23:20 -0400
Yea……Brown is going to fix the problem with a carbon tax. John Landry, you are right…….PB is but a poodle.
commented 2016-07-27 20:01:21 -0400
Patrick Brown should be dragging the dead carcass of the Liberal party across the legislative assembly, but yet they stand! Yes, we’re completely fed up! But Patrick Brown is not a bull dog! He’s a poodle!

Patrick Brown on Wynne fundraising scandals: “I think is baaaaad, and I’m gonna sulk in a blue funk in some dark corner of my office until things get better"

The “corruption” Patrick my boy is business as usual for globalists. It’s how its done in Venezuela, Cuba, China and every other moral backwater where globalist corruption is SOP for the power structure. Unless you have the nuts to take on the corporate crony forces backing Wynn and globalism in Ontario, throw in the gloves and let a real statesman step forward who cares about his country.

Like all Marxist, Wynne is just here to ruin the Province of ON and to give her, her dues, she is doing an excellent job.
There is only one cure for persons like Her, a good old fashioned Lynch Mob.

Stupid residents of Toronto will reelect liberals again.
I move that we force Toronto to become its own country and separate it from the rest of Ontario.
It already has a dictator to run it in the guise of WYNNIE the Poop.

Dump Justin Bin Trudeau and his brain dead wife Sophie
