The Toronto Star is worried that the Ontario PC Party just handed the leadership to the wrong man.
That makes me happy.
I didn’t pick sides in the leadership race and any of the four candidates could have beaten Kathleen Wynne’s incompetent Liberals. But upsetting The Red Star always makes me happy.
Make no mistake, had Christine Elliott won, the so-called moderate choice would have been re-branded by now as “right wing nut job” and deemed unfit for any elected office by the same media folks now mourning that the PCs didn’t make the sensible choice.
Remember, these media folks have a horrible track record. I should know, I’m one of them but I don’t follow the pack and my track record is actually quite good.
So today we have a series of columns lamenting Ford as leader. It is to be expected in places like The Globe and Mail or the Star but not really in the pages of the Ottawa Sun where columnist Rick Gibbons has declared Ford’s win a disaster.
