Green Light gets a big ticket (updated)

UPDATE: I am told by those who would know that PMO did not involve itself in any way in this nomination. I am equally told they are satisfied that “democracy was done,” here. So there’s that. 


  1. P. Brenn says:

    cant win them all…underestimated the local liberals and mayors impact ..Congrats to Emmanuella for working hard and for putting her name forward…

  2. Aongasha says:

    Do you really think the PMO would tell you the truth on this Warren? Not too frigging likely. Too embarrassing for them. They had the local Quebec masterminds out in full force trying to fix this for James. What they didn’t count on is the influence Alan Desousa and his team have in the riding and Emmanuella’s strength in the Greek community. It’s a slap in the face for the PMO & the Butts crowd. I suspect there’ll be more. No problem for James though, she’ll go right back to work for CBC, or like many journalists these days, in some Liberal cabinet minister’s office.

  3. Charlie says:

    I think it was pretty obvious that James was at the very least the star candidate for this by-election; whether the PMO explicitly interfered in the race to benefit her is yet to be proven.

    Having said that, I’m stunned that she lost and just elated that Emmanuella Lambropoulos won this race.

    This woman fits 100% what Trudeau has been championing the Liberal party as being, i.e: young, female and grass-roots. Trudeau would be wise to embrace Ms. Lambropoulos.

    • Warren says:

      They will. When Eve and Dimitri got their asses handed to them, Trudeau et al. embraced the winner pretty fast.

      • Charlie says:

        I don’t know…

        They made a huge deal about Eve potentially unseating Joe Oliver when she switched teams, but when Marco (a phenomenal lawyer and better candidate) won the nomination they just sort of accepted it and went completely silent on that race.

    She seems very genuine and honest. Won’t fit in with Team Justin very well.
    She comes across as quite humbled. Won’t fit in with Team Jusitin very well.
    Lives in riding. Won’t fit in with Team Justin very well.
    Probably upset a lot of Team Trudeau insiders. Prime candidate for Electoral Reform Minister.
