With Frank Klees

Must say I'm impressed. He's got the right idea on the HRC's, they need to be reformed, not abolished, and the Liberals are just waiting in the weeds with glee thanks to all the politically inept folks in our Party who have jumped onto the abolitionist bandwagon.

Oh, Frank is starting his official talk... BRB

UPDATE: Okay, home on the laptop now. It was a good chat... not a speech, a chat. Felt very intimate and personal, very "grassroots" if you will. Honestly, he doesn't have, in my opinion, the public persona to be Premier, but based on his background and steadfastness, I think he's my pick for Finanace Minister. He's got some great insight on what we did right in the 90's when we took power, and on what things we didn't do that we should have, that would have left the province in much better hands when the McGuinty Liberals took over in 2003. Based on his work ethic, his personal background, and his experience, he's the sort of guy that I want watching our Premier's back, and keeping him accountable to the grassroots.

He also admitted that our greatest sin as a Party was to forget about the grassroots. We let power get to us, and the folks in the upper ranks took on a "we know best" attitude, and as a result, lost touch with those who got them where they were, and who they needed to keep them there. In essence, they didn't "dance with the one who brung'em".

Like I said, I think he locked up my #2 spot. Still a few days to go, and who knows what may happen between now and then.

    The problem with Frank on this issue is that he has no idea what he's talking about. His idea for "reform" was to abolish section 13 of the Ontario Human Rights Act, a piece of legislation that does not exist.

    Section 13 of the Ontario Human Rights Code means something else...

    I didn't find that slip-up too impressive.

    abolish, the hrc's themselves want to be reformed, even if you reform theym into a 'semblence of rationality they will simply evolve into a hydra again like they have since the 70's.

    Impressed? No.

    Klees is about as vague as was when it was to his advantage.

    Impressed by Klees? Not me.

    Klees is about as vague as Tory was when it was to his advantage.

    I only need to decide whether I put him as third or forth choice on the ballot.
