...gate-crashing ex Premier Bill Davis' speech in praise of the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness. WK mentioned this yesterday, but the perps--Tory candidates Pam Hundal (Brampton-Springdale), Sanjeev Maingi (Bramalea-Gore-Malton), Amarjeet Gill (Mississauga-Brampton South)-- disputed a few details. Its nice, therefore, to have the story from an imparital source:
Also present was Brampton native Bill Davis, 82, who served as Ontario’s Progressive Conservative premier from 1971 until 1985. “This hospital will be a guidepost for other hospitals not only in this province but in the country,” Davis said, jokingly referring to the city as a “small rural town,” which it was when he grew up there.
Three Progressive Conservative candidates in the upcoming election showed up, but it was evident from the reaction of Matthews and event staff that they were not invited. Amarjeet Gill, Sanjeev Maingi and Pam Hundal stood in front of the dignitaries with a sign that read, in part: “When was the last time the Liberals made this promise? Five days before the last election.”
At one point, Anderson asked the three to move further to the side so as not to obstruct the view of the invited guests.
So, in short, Hudak sent three of his candidates to stomp all over a speech given by one of Ontario's best-known, best-loved Conservative politicians. Guy's got a lot of class. All of it 3rd.
