    The opposition leaders will send their deputy leaders to meet with you.

    They know how you like that.

    "Unite against the federal government." Because that doesn't sound like the plot of a bad movie AT ALL. The sooner we can vote this chucklehead out of office and get a strong Conservative majority in power, the better.

      @Jack There is a greater chance of a tsunami happening on Lake Nipissing than there is of a Conservative majority government in Ontario these days.

      Since the provincial conservative party insists on clinging to Hudak as leader, the conservative voter base continues to erode.
