Let's not forget Robbie failed a term even playing the cancer/death card. It would be interesting if Dougie does throw his jock-strap into the ring, I have two questions, one, if his biggest support base is in the GTA (mostly outside Toronto) and he fails provincially, will he have enough of a base left or will we see the same as last time?. Second, if people blow their load, so to speak, on a provincial run then where would Dougie get campaign funds to run in Toronto again? If Dougie has indeed turned his back on the "Elites" like Mike Harris then...Incumbency is a powerful thing in municipal politics. Tory was already favored to win based on that alone.
You don't think that he will go back to running for mayor if/when he fails to become PC leader?
"Getting Rid Of The Elites" ("Drain The Swamp" by any other phrase) and "Find Efficiencies" are so familiar, and are dated, however, what's a Populist to do. The question is if peoples' are as short as Dougie thinks they are even considering that Ford 2.1a is in office south of the boarder.
The one thing that is sure... material for Comedians and so-called "alternative media" (some would argue it's the same thing as the former).
