Tim Hudak Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Resign

June 13th, 2014

I said he had to go almost 2-years ago. It was obvious then; it was obvious the previous October. But he refused to go, his people insisted he’s the guy, simply has to be. Richard Ciano even sent out an email explaining how big a win it was to lose two different by-elections. Two! On the same day!! As I pointed out then, what a concession speech. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

Hey Tim, you wanted to stay. Stay. Act like a man and face the party. Let your ass be unceremoniously fired, and all of your advisers with you. This is your mess, own it, explain yourself, and then take your march to the guillotine with dignity.

Meanwhile, Doug Ford is 100% right on this:

I’d give that PC party an enema from top to bottom.

It need a thorough cleaning out, and it needs to start offering a sellable message now.

The day after a government whom nobody is denying committed an illegal act was re-elected, it tells us something about where we are as a province, and it’s not a good place.
