The Hill Times’ Harris MacLeod sent me an email this aft, asking about something or the other, but also if I’d be running the LPC war room in the next election. I told him no.
He asked why. This is the gist of what I wrote back.
“I wrote to Michael and said I couldn’t run the war room in the next campaign. I am quite busy with the McGuinty war room, and won’t be able to do both simultaneously. Michael was very understanding.
I’m still a federal Liberal, and I will be helping out in any way I can. But I don’t have the ability to be in two places at once. And my business took a hit last Summer and Fall, when I dropped everything to be on hand for an election that never came. Have I agreed with everything that has been going on in OLO? No, of course not. But that’s how it is in a political party – you don’t always agree with every single decision that is made.
I wish Michael and his team the best. They’ve got some great, great people up there. I know that the next war room will do an amazing job. I wish them the very best.”
