Canada: Conservatives Not Wanted
In Newfoundland and Labrador, Canadians said goodbye to the last Conservative government in Canada. It was a crushing defeat for the Newfoundland and Labrador Conservatives.
This is a first*.
I believe it’s happened because of universal dislike of the Harper Conservatives and their inability to tell the truth, manage the economy or create conditions of prosperity for any region of Canada.
Let’s hope it’s not the last and let’s hope our more ‘progressive’ leaders don’t screw it up. We already see signs (well, many) that the Ontario Wynne Liberals are inviting their own demise by doing ridiculous things like privatizing Ontario Hydro, allowing their debt to balloon and allowing more corruption under their watch.
* Clarification: Brad Wall and Christy Clark are conservatives, but they won’t label themselves as such.
The Saskatchewan Party (Brad Wall) is conservative but does not dare admit it since most of the last Conservative government there ended up in jail for corruption. Christy Clark in BC calls her party liberal but they are not. Christy is a graduate of the Manning Institute, a training institute for hard-core Conservatives.
