Nepean PC candidate Lisa MacLeod has called her leader Doug Ford “a very strong, capable, generous, kind soul.”
All of which might be true except that Ford was the brains behind his late brother Doug’s municipal reign in Toronto … possibly the worst government at any level in Canada at any time. On its best days it was a car crash and it embarrassed Toronto and Canada around the world. The first question Americans would ask Canadians when they met around that time was: “What do you think of Rob Ford?”
Not much and his brother’s tight association with him and Doug’s deportment during that time make him very unqualified to be premier of Ontario. Where oh where is Bill Davis?
MPP Lisa MacLeod is unfortunately tied to PC leader Doug Ford.
MacLeod has made it very clear she is fully behind Ford and that disqualifies her from repeating as the representative from Nepean.
Furthermore for some reason, MacLeod says she stands for “one Nepean”. Who knew there were two?
MacLeod also classes city planning committee chairwoman and Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder as her mentor. Given the terrible treatment the public was recently afforded with the high-rise and zoning report, mentor Harder is not something you want to say too loud.
MacLeod parrots the sound-bite so-called platform of Ford which is insulting to voters’ intelligence.
Ford and the Progressive Conservatives (witness the Gong Show that the party has been over the last few months) are incapable of running Ontario well and MacLeod likes Ford and she’s a PC. Nuff said.
The NDP’s Zaff Ansari graduated with a computer science degree from the University of Ottawa. Ansari lives in Nepean with his wife and family and does computer work for the federal government. Nothing wrong with Ansari except his resume is a tad light.
Liberal candidate Lovina Srivastava graduated with a bachelor of engineering degree from a university in India. Srivastava is a computer consultant who has worked in senior management at Blackberry and the Department of National Defence. Nice balance of private and public sector experience and she is also a leader in the computer field in Ottawa.
Despite the desperate spending of desperate Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne, Srivastava has the advantage of being against a woeful Ford regime that Ontario simply cannot allow. Keep Donald Trump politics south of the border.
Go with the Liberal Srivastava in Nepean.
