Ontario Landowners Rejig The Brand

New OLA President Deborah Madill tries to soften the rough edges:

In this article, the Star described the Ontario Landowners Association as a “rural rights group.” That’s not quite right.

In fact, the OLA is an organization dedicated to defending the property rights of all Ontario citizens, whether they live in rural or urban areas.

And that's true in that the OLA has scrubbed most of the references to a "rural revolution" off their website. You can still see a few here, though:

And its true in that ex-OLA President Randy Hillier is no longer suggesting that rural Ontario should separate and form its own province. But he used to.

You can forget all that stuff, or not. But I sure won't

And, of course, there's the punting of Ed Kennedy from the movement.

Oh, wait. No. He resigned. Ya, that's right. Resigned. ;)
