"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Friday 2 February 2018


The week-end was interesting. Declarations  for the Conservative leadership and scandalous revelations about thousands of bogus memberships . Patrick Brown claimed to have sold most 
and probably received the phoney votes. As messy nominations evolved, a Sikh organisation from Brampton claimed credit for membership increases and a substantial financial contribution to Brown's campaign fund. 

Brown is no longer leader . But not for the  reasons above. 

The interim leader states he has "to root out the rot from the core "of the party. He didn't identify the  "rot". Now it has been revealed . Thousands of names on the membership list are not people. Seven 
or eight names at different addresses do not exist. 

That's not good. 

Time is short. . Cleaning up the mess  will be tricky... Disposing of it even trickier. 

Enter Caroline Mulrooney to save the day. Ontario has had enough of the old guard she says,...
 time for new blood.  

Might be a little too new or  a tad less than fresh.

Doug Ford says he knows nothing  about her because she's been working in New York for the last twenty years. 

Caroline is  a lawyer. Like her father. Y'all remember Brian Mulrooney. The guy with the Gucchi shoe collection . Introduced the federal sale tax and swanned off amid scandalous rumours.

He signed N.A.F.T.A. and  left the rest of us to watch manufacturing industries drift away,never
to return , while he sang  Irish Eyes  along with Ronald Reagan. 

Y'all remember Caroline's wedding...like a Princess  of the Realm.

Caroline must be bored with life in Manhattan. Or maybe she plans to commute. Or alternately , it's
a new start to her own life she's seeking. 

She has never held elected office. Might be fun. 

Poor little rich girl. 

Steve Paikin is being investigated following allegations.

In response to Ford's comment, she stated that she has lived in Toronto for the last 12 years. Ford also said that he has never met her, she responded that they were seated next to each other at a dinner a number of years ago.

Ford, Elliott, Mulroney. I'll take Ford. Being female, I'm happy to see 2 female contenders. But Ford is the best one for this job

23:27 - I can agree with the "facepalm" comment in regards to what's happened to the PC party.
But if the comment was made because of the choice for Ford to lead the party. I agree, He would be the best one to lead.
19:50 - Is this comment a reply to Evelyns post? If so, it's stinky.
