“We have lots of things that we’re going to do that we won’t say before the election because we want to get elected”

Story here.

The knuckle-dragging, red-necked Landowner loon Jack MacLaren should have been kicked out of the Ontario PC caucus long ago.  He’s an idiot.

He, and his “Trillim Party” are irrelevant, now.  But this statement MacLaren made in that video will linger for a long time:

“We have lots of things that we’re going to do that we won’t say before the election because we want to get elected.”

That, in a single sentence, sums up why voters increasingly distrust politicians.

How Patrick Brown deals with the fallout will be a crucial test of him, and his party.

    The question now: Is there a big fat target on Randy Hillier?

    Brown’s problem isn’t just McLaren. There are MPPs still in his caucus that have said virtually the same thing.

    In a meeting with social conservatives at Queens Park, Rick Nicholls (Chatham Kent Leamington) didn’t realize there were reporters in the room and was quoted as saying “wait until we are elected, then we can go, go go” when speaking about the social conservative agenda.

    Monte McNaughton (Lambton Kent Middlesex) is said to be disillusioned with Brown and biding his time, biting his tongue. McNaughton, the anti-sex ed champion who delivered the socon vote to Brown during the leadership is not happy that Brown is distancing himself from his previously stated policy positions. The only thing keeping McNaughton in the fold is his ambition and hunger for a cabinet post. If the polls start going soft look for McNaughton to start making waves.

    Every party has a hidden agenda, Warren. You of anyone know that very well. MacLaren is stating the obvious. What isn’t clear is whether Brown agrees with MacLaren’s version of said agenda. By all evidence, I think not. Far too shrewd.

    The federal Liberals’ hidden agenda – mass immigration in an era of low growth (suppressing wages and keeping rents high), an end to the merit principle, an end to fiscal responsibiliy, policy concocted to please SJW illiberal progressives – concerns me more than the views of a couple powerless Tories from the socon wing.

    Just threw the keys to the family car to a bunch of five year olds.

    This crash and burn is going to be epic! Mark my words.

    Man, I don’t know what it is about Ontario conservatives but, Jesus, they are the fucking worst.

    Almost caricatures of Tea Party Republicans kind of bad.

    I know quite a few PC folks here in Manitoba; some social conservatives — none of them as terrible as the guys I hear about in Ontario.
