Live-tweeting the CPC “vote”


  1. Douglas W says:

    Tonight’s CPC shit show: a case study on how to severely damage your party’s brand.

    • Pedant says:

      You think so? So technical difficulties delayed the result a few hours. It happens. I don’t see what the huge deal is to be honest. It’s not as if anyone aside from political junkies was watching the coverage anyway.

  2. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Do we look stupid in light of this fiasco? Of course we do. But you know what, we still don’t look as stupid as that sitting prime minister whose government allowed SNC post scandal to get 142 federal contracts.

    • the real Sean says:

      Exactly… A poorly run leadership convention which may not have been necessary (CPC) is definitely better than no leadership convention (LPC) when it is absolutely necessary.

  3. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    And the other thing is perspective: Ford’s selection as party leader was an unmitigated logistical disaster and guess what, he still ended up as premier.

  4. the real Sean says:

    New rule! If ballot counting takes more than 3 hours…

    first ballot settled by cage match!

    remaining contestants settle the second ballot by ladder match!

    remaining contestants settle third ballot by monster trucks!

    fourth ballot sumo suits!

  5. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Quebec has spoken loud and clear. Alupa took us to the cleaners.

  6. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Unity above everything else.

    Congratulations Erin, well done.

  7. William says:

    Congratulations to Justin Trudeau on his next majority government, courtesy of Erin O’toole and his merry band of social conservatives.

    • Jim R says:

      Can you quote anything O’Toole may have said that would be considered socially conservative? How about in his platform?

      The fact that he received the social conservative vote when paired against MacKay is not indicative of much of anything at this point in time.

      • William says:

        You’re joking, right? I live in his riding and could go on and on but I suspect you are a true believer so I won’t bother. Just read Warren posts.

  8. The bike ride sounds like the most fun thing!
