Thornhill: Seriously? Harper was in Israel when this by-election was called. Canadian Jews are conservative. Hudak will keep it, Wynne will be second (but not close) and the NDP will only be kept alive by endangered species protection laws.
Niagara Falls: This one’s the big one. It was an Ontario Liberal seat for a long, long time. The Wynne Liberals are going to finish in a distant third place, however, and the NDP are going to win it – and it’s right next door to Tim Hudak’s home riding, too. For both Wynne and Hudak, an NDP victory will represent humiliation on a historic scale. For Horwath, it means she’s a lot closer to being Premier of Ontario.
If I’m right – and of course, I am – it means a Spring election. Niagara Falls will give Horwath what she needs to stare down Sid Ryan and his ilk, who cravenly want to prop up Wynne as long as possible.
Who will win the election? The Ontario NDP, methinks. That’s been my view for months, and all that has happened in the past year has reinforced that view.
What interests me most is Stintz’s decision to (a) attack someone who clearly has her worried (b) her bizarro swing at the NDP and (c) her naked shilling for the Harper/Flaherty Conservatives.
Now, given that Karen is a lifelong, hardcore Conservative, one who worked to privatize healthcare – and whose partner worked for the aforementioned Flaherty – I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised. But, honestly: if you are running for mayor of Toronto, is it a good idea to be seen doing Harper’s dirty work?
Anyway, keep at it, Karen. At this rate, if you get your deposit back, I’ll be frankly amazed.
Meet Eli and Nick, both 13. They’re outside Mayor Crackhead’s office today, along with others, to basically just say he no longer has the moral authority to govern. Say the boys: “We’ve always been taught not to do drugs.”
The Blackberry killer finally arrived in the mail yesterday. I have used it, and I can tell you this: what little is left of Blackberry will not survive the Typo. The thing that kept the Blackberry alive was the iconic keyboard. Typo now lets you use that keyboard on an iPhone.
