Patrick Brown, explained 



  1. Michael says:

    The scuttlebutt around QP is that the ONPC are happy with the performance of Wilson as leader in the Legislature and are in no hurry to expose Brown daily in the Legislature. I think they are hoping to play rope a dope, not come out with any substantive policy and hope the public gets tired of the Liberals. Because that worked so well in the past.

    • GFMD says:

      people getting tired of the liberals has come pretty easily (they’ve been in a while, and there was a time when McGuinty was like an actual 50 points behind in the polls). It’s the not having policy that trips them up – when Hudak spoke, people really didn’t liek what they heard.

  2. Kaiser Helmets 'n Motorbikes says:

    They called me the other (as usual) for a donation.

    Told them to stop calling.

    Can’t support Brown under any circumstances.

    Tilt, game over.

  3. jeff316 says:

    Dislodging anyone from the Ontario PC caucus is going to be a tough sell.

    They’re all middle-aged lifers or members who are relatively new. No one is immediately on the cusp of retirement. Hudak is still relatively young and resigning would only serve to re-highlight his election loss.

    The last opposition by-election went to the government (Sudbury), and the last time a popular, local sitting MPP was pushed out for their leader the seat was lost (Laurie Scott / John Tory).

    From what I’ve heard, Michael is correct. The question is, is that scuttlebut honest or is it aimed to shadow the reality that no one in caucus really likes Brown and the likelihood of getting a seat is low? Probably a bit of truth on both sides.
