February 22, 2008 12:28 PM - Nine directors of the Mississauga East-Cooksville Conservative Party executive have resigned in protest over the hasty process used by party leaders to select their riding's candidate in the next federal election.
One of the nine party Rebs, Charles W. Conn, has gone public with his issues re Ms. Bhagat, and frankly they seem to run a bit deeper than mere process:
Inflicting us with a Party-selected candidate who has been rejected by the Liberals, both provincially in Brampton Centre and federally in Brampton Springdale, and who was not welcomed by the PC's provincially, is an invitation to disaster. Doing so, so soon after the Tory rape of Mississauga South in the recent provo election, where the PC's inflicted Liberal-reject Peterson on the EDA, will confirm that the Tory brand stands for top-down dictatorship and callous contempt for members and citizens in Mississauga. It will also ensure continued victories for Liberals in Mississauga for years to come.
MEC members deserve a better candidate than a Liberal reject, from Brampton.
Whoa there, Charles! Grab some couth!
Reminds me of this, except that since here its an ex-Lib rather than an ex-Tory, I find it easier to see the humorous aspect.
