The Conservative Party of Canada has never taken Toronto Danforth seriously. In the past they have run rather weak candidates. Their Modus Operandi seems to be NOT give their candidates much leeway in terms of how to run their campaigns. But, this is just speculation. We will have to see if Mr. Keyes appears in the debate.
In any case, just was talking to somebody in Toronto Danforth who received a “cold call” from the Conservative Party. The question asked was:
Will you vote for Stephen and the Conservative Candidate? At the time of the phone call there was no Conservative Candidate. Could it be the Conservative Candidate is just the mechanism to vote for Mr. Harper?
Remember on March 19, you are voting for a candidate NOT for a leader and not for a party!
