‘I’m a Canadian and a taxpayer first’


 

Two weeks after gaining the support of the former Liberal candidate in Vaughan, Conservative incumbent Julian Fantino loses the support of the former Conservative candidate.

Two Vaughan Conservatives have quit their riding association over a $10 million federal grant given to a health care project spearheaded by MP Julian Fantino’s former fundraisers. “I’m a Canadian and a taxpayer first,” said Richard Lorello, who ran as a Conservative candidate in the riding in 2008. “It didn’t look right to me. If it was the Liberal party doing this, (the) Conservatives would be jumping up and down.”

  1. Strangely, I've read all about this in French on Radio-Canada yesterday. Heard all about it in French on Radio-Canada's Toronto's radio station yesterday. Amazing how the English media has burried this story.

    • Lorello and others have been tweeting about this and other questionable things in that riding for months

  3. Funny, given Cons are always telling us healthcare is a provincial responsiblity, exclusively.

    • I think they want "provincial" to morph into "private."

  6. It's that Liberal bias we all hear about.

    Oh, wait . . .

    It happens so frequently now that I don't think most Canadians even bat an eye anymore when the Tories do the exact sorts of things they used to eviscerate the Liberals for. I'd say the Tory conversion to the dark side is pretty much complete.

  8. Good to see that their are at least a couple of conservatives with morals. Even they see what a reckless conservative majority would do to the country we love.
