Conservatives In Hiding…

This is taking Harper’s penchant for keeping his members of parliament and now even his party’s election candidates under a ‘bubble’ to the extreme, bordering on arrogance and contempt for the people they wish to serve, while clearly showing, once again, their disdain for our democratic process that includes free and open public election forums where all candidates come before the people to tell us why we should support them.

I guess they figure sticking their noses up in the air and taking the people for granted is a smart election ploy?

If I have missed any hiding Conservatives … let me know so that I can update the list!

Elect A.B.C. – “Anybody but Conservative” in Macleod.

By refusing to stand before voters in public and give an honest accounting of themselves and the party they represent, these candidates are not offering a good representation of democracy.

How then can voters be assured of good representation in Ottawa?


The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.

    Wow! I guess they must know they have a better chance of being elected if they ‘don’t’ say anything.

    ‘Stupid is as stupid does’ I suspect this will come to bite them at the end of the day. Chris Alexander isn’t my choice of candidate regardless.

    Chloe in Ajax-Pickering riding

    Chris Alexander, now there is a piece of work. Margolis did an article on him that wasn’t very flattering. Diplomat, CIA type shit, if I remember correctly.
    He was also in the news recently saying that business cuts must come before families and ?

    /btw according to Democracy Watch your best bet is god forbid a Liberal… :-)

    I notice the Big Blue Bridgecreek Box has Blue election signs on it. So either:

    1) The owners asked for the signs.
    2) The party asked the owners for permission.
    3) The party knows it’s abandoned.
