Frank Valeriote Maverick Watch

by Aaron Wherry

“I believe in working toward a solution, not working toward a coalition … I am not, frankly, anticipating moving into government.” 

Liberal rookie Frank Valeriote will probably not receive a cabinet post in the separatist coalition.

Frank Valeriote Maverick Watch

  1. These twits all discover their spine when they go home. And the jockeying for comfy-fur will continue until there is a resolution.

  2. No surprise coming from the Valeriotes. They’re all idiots.

  3. When the vote comes, I hope they either paint passing lanes on the floor, or where helmets when they cross. Should be entertaining.

  4. Sorry, it’s late and I’m trying to catch up before the news; that should read ‘wear’, not ‘where’, damn sausages.

  5. The election is on, if not now then in a month or two.

    That’s great news for the well being of our democracy.

    Members of the newly formed coalition will be able to truly let the people of this country in on their proposed plans: (of course they will not run as a coaltion, but then, to be fair, who would?)

    the Liberals will have to run with Dion as their leader, but that’s a good thing, as they have just told the country

    the NDP might have to listen to some additional taped-feedback, which might ultimately surprise Mr.Jack Layton himself.

    the BQ might have to campaign as usual; as a provincial party pretending to be federal

    the Conservatives might win huge or may loose, but at least they have given this country and their own party a fair chance.

  6. What colour is his parachute?

  7. Look out, guys: h tee tee pee :// (moderate this!) warrenkinsella (dot!) com/index (dot) php?entry=entry081203-211130

    Maybe the PM won’t ask for prorogation… looks like the coalition won’t make it to Monday.

  8. When Three Stooges Rebellion is finally put to its grave Liberals are going to have a satisfaction and a good laugh that their leader on his way out the door have managed to take two other leaders of two other political parties down with him. When we are talking wars of attrition this must have been one of the greatest accomplishments of Liberal Party of Canada in recent years. They just set NDP back for at least a million dollars in cost of leadership convention (if we count drop in donations it might be couple of millions in the next four years). They just set Bloc back for at least half a million if not more. Thy have saved themselves from brink of bankruptcy and set the issue of ending government subsidy for political parties in permanent limbo for next couple of years. That set them ahead at least thirty million dollars. Not bad for a few days work.

    Who said that Liberals cannot get anything done these days??

  9. Karol,

    “Thy have saved themselves from brink of bankruptcy and set the issue of ending government subsidy for political parties in permanent limbo for next couple of years. ”

    You make it sound as if the Liberals should be extremely proud of the fact that they depend on public subsidies to survive. Or did I miss something here?

    Independent Party fundraising is a bad thing?

  10. Liberal rookie Frank Valeriote will probably not receive a cabinet post in the separatist coalition.

    Federation of Separatists?

    Canadian Alliance?

  11. I have the solution.

    Prorogue as planned.

    But have Parliament reconvene on Monday for a spirited match of Red Rover. Winner gets 18 months of confidence.

  12. He may not receive a Cabinet post …but he has certainly improved his personal chances of re-election.
