So, Liberals are frantically trying to hold onto 5 seats and are pulling out all the stops to try and get voters to reward their incompetence, and what does the Premier and leader of their party say?
"There’s no way whatever happens in these byelections that there will be a Conservative or an NDP government so it’s a pretty risk-free way for people in ridings to send a message to government about upping a game."
Hooooo boy. I can tell you that the Liberals did not appreciate hearing that today. How are they supposed to scare voters with visions of Ford Nation descending on Queen's Park when the Premier is telling everyone that these byelections don't matter??
Hundreds of trendily-dressed Liberals are pounding the pavement in 90 degree heat, consuming gallons of hair product and caffeinated beverages in a futile effort to remain fabulous, and Queen Kathleen basically says that their efforts don't matter because the by-elections don't matter.
I ask you: When Alison Redford and Christy Clark were facing annihilation, did they say, "oh well, can't win 'em all?" Sandra Pupatello would have made Doug Holyday cry for his mommy and turned Adam Giambrone into apricot jelly. But no- the Liberals had to go and "make history."
It's really sad to see how much this Premier couldn't care less about the rank and file......hahahahaha. Nope. Sorry, couldn't keep a straight face for that one. It's actually really really funny.
