Maclean’s on the Hill: Tim Hudak, Ukraine and Justin Trudeau

  1. It is so funny seeing the wealthy Rosedale socialist clique in a tizzy that Andrea Horvath is actually trying to win.

    As for the ad in the Toronto Sun, out west, working class people on the prairies regularly switch their votes between the NDP and the “conservative” party, by whatever name it is being used. So Andrea Horvath is campaigning for Ford Nation. Good for her. A vote is a vote. Didn’t IPSOS have the NDP rising in their last poll.

    The Rosedale socialists are just outraged that Andrea Horvath is a real person that comes from the real world outside of the fantasy world Rosedale salon rooms.

  2. Whether you like the new Liberal party look, or whether you like to criticize the new liberal party look, you have to give Trudeau credit for the guts to take a party that was facing extinction and turn it inside out to make it a viable option for the 2015, takes guts and vision, whether you like him or not. Justin Trudeau has introduced more Canadians to how change can happen in Ottawa(dropping senate, pro-life choices, etc.) than any other leader since the constitution was introduced to Canadians, whether you like it or not. Harper and Tom are always talking about reform(harper, 8 years and still talking about it), notice I said always talking about reform, but never getting anything done. The other 2 parties(dippers&cons)are just full hot air.

    • Viable option?

      Guts and vision?
