A couple weeks ago, I wrote this:
Will I be involved in the OLP, going forward? Beyond the convention, no. No way. I am out, full stop.
It’s time for others to step up. I have other plans, and they don’t include the OLP war room or campaign, no matter who wins.
There’s a lot of smart folks, as noted above, to run the coming campaign. They’ll do just fine without old farts like me around.
Good luck to them.
I meant that then, and I mean it now. I’m out. Ten years with an amazing guy like Dalton McGuinty is a great run.
The online nobodies (like this loser, who has been tweeting and commenting under different names all night, or this one, who remains a jerk) have been having a field day tonight about my involvement. Keep at it, losers: neither of you has ever had the guts to step up in a campaign. Nor will you. (You’re cowards.)
I don’t regret supporting Sandra Pupatello for one solitary moment. I supported her because she was (and is!) an amazing, passionate, talented woman, and it was such a privilege to volunteer for her.
Katheleen Wynne, as I’ve noted elsewhere, is a also terrific person, and she obviously ran an amazing campaign. I wish her the very best.
But, as noted a couple weeks back, I won’t be back in the campaign or the war room. It’s time for new blood, new ideas, new faces.
Now, I need a beer.
