Guelph Liberal supporters continue the negative attacks

Well, yesterday Steve Valeriote (Frank's relative) was calling Guelph Conservative candidate Gloria Kovach a "trained seal". Now another Liberal supporter is calling her a Harper "sock puppet"! Will these negative attacks never end? The following graphic was created by one of the Liberal supporters:

I'll repeat what I said yesterday... the people of Guelph know Gloria way better than these immature Liberal bloggers do. Will Frank distance himself from these negative attacks... or is he happy to just let them continue?

The citizens of Guelph know Gloria as the devoted 17 year veteran of City Council. They've seen her serving the nation as former President of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. They've watched her as she's represented their City, and this great nation, on various trade and humanitarian missions overseas. And they watched her in recent months leading the charge against a proposed massive 6.5% municipal tax hike for the 2009 budget.

Are these Liberal bloggers saying that Harper's been pulling her strings all these years? Yea... their juvenile little antics just don't hold water.

So tell Frank Valeriote's Liberals what you think of these negative attacks... show your support for Gloria Kovach by attending their campaign launch this Thursday, or if you can't attend, throw a donation her way.

UPDATE: Even good old Jason Cherniak piled on today, with this comment: "Gloria Kovach - the only president of the FCM to be fired. What a candidate!"

Well, I'm glad you bring that subject up Jason... the Guelph Mercury is still poking around on that issue, looking for the answers that have never been given on why Kovach was removed, without cause, from her post as FCM President. A statement was issued several months after her removal, indicating that her removal had nothing to do with her performance while serving as President. That leaves only one reason for her removal... political interference. Dion's office finally issued a denial last week, (I'm not convinced, however) but the FCM still has not come clean with what exactly happened. Until the FCM finally admits why they had her removed, a dark cloud still hangs over that supposedly non-partisan organization.

And just for the record, Jason... some have suggested she was removed because of her intentions to run for Parliament. We know that can't possibly be the reason, because your own MP Byron Wilfert did the exact same thing when he was FCM President, right Jason?

Which leaves only one possible reason... political interference.

    The only sock puppets and trained seals are those members of the Liberal party who parrot the weird ramblings of the Nutty Professor as he tries to convince Canadians that a tax is not a tax.

    The By election is barely out of the starting gates and who is first with the attack ad's ?. Our "friends", the Liberals.
    Pretty sick, if you ask me. The liberals are dying to call Ms. Kovach a dog, but that would be a reprehensible thing to do, so 'ole Steve Valeriote creates a blog post called Arf Arf, which in effect does the same thing.

    Immature? That would by YOU for overreacting. Considering all the attacks on Dion, etc., you really look wimpy and foolish.

    Be a man and get over it.

    I've seen your past posts getting all giggly if something negative comes up about Liberals or Dion or what you think is a cool attack.

    Unbelievable - lighten up.

    Wow, that's brave on Mr. Anonymous. He's so sure of what he says that he posts..... anonymously. As far as getting all giggly when something negative comes out about the Liberals, can you blame us ?. That happens SO often. AND, we don't need to make things up like sock puppets or pictures of animals. The Liberals come up with stuff so we don't have too.

    i have to agree with the anonymous commentor.

    you absolutely love the childish nonsense the CPoC engages in from coast to coast.

    furthermore, it's not as though steve and others don't have a point.

    the PMO stifled diane cunningham and they'll do the same to kovach.

    speaking of sexism, why won't harper let his female candidates speak for themselves?

    To Anon post:

    "Immature? That would by YOU for overreacting. Considering all the attacks on Dion, etc., you really look wimpy and foolish."

    "Be a man and get over it."

    Anon how about being brave and show who you really are. Is that too much to ask anon?

    Steve - is that you???

    They are not attack ads they are independant blog postings. Why is CC trying to attach something to the Valeriote campaign that has nothing to do with Frank Valeriote. That is the truly negative attack in this entire tempest in a teapot.

    I am the "Anon" you are all upset about.

    I'm actually supporting the Green Party.

    I just find you people limited and dumb.

    Bert couldn't even tell the reference is "sock puppet" not a I said, dumb.

    Will you be equally outraged when (not if) the Kovach campaign, or the Blogging Tories, ramp up attacks on the other candidates?

    Actually there are at least two other reasons beside political interference for Gloria's ousting, God wanted it and so it came to pass, or people inside the organization didn't like her, for personal reasons. A great many people locally seem not to like precisely because the personal is political.

    Wow, Teresa, I stand corrected. Posting a name makes it all better. By the way, what kind of animal is the sock puppet ?

    Give me one example where a Tory candidate, running on his or her own merits within their community which they vie to represent, went to Ottawa and DIDN'T become a trailed seal to the PMO.
