Time to Vote Liberal

January 9th, 2009

At least if you live in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. It is the one chance conservative voters in Ontario have of ridding themselves of John Tory:

Dissension in Progressive Conservative ranks will subside now that leader John Tory… has convinced MPP Laurie Scott (Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock) to resign so he can contest a by-election that could get him into the Legislature as early as March…

Senior Liberals, meanwhile, say the party will field a candidate against Tory, but McGuinty will expedite the by-election call so the PC leader could be back in the House when MPPs return from March break on March 23.

If Tory loses the by-election, it would be hard to imagine a scenario where even Tory has the gall to continue as leader.

In the 2007 election Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock was won by PC candidate Laurie Scott with virtually 50% of the vote. Second place went to the Liberal candidate, Rick Johnson, with 30%. The NDP was at almost 12% and the Greenies 8%. What this means is it’s time for conservative voters in HKLB to swallow hard and do the unthinkable, vote Liberal.
