TIMID TORIES

Ottawa Sun - - COMMENT -

Lor­rie Gold­stein is spot on with his anal­y­sis about the fed­eral Con­ser­va­tives and that is that they are afraid to as­so­ci­ate with their name­sake. Give the Grits credit, they of­ten come out with ridicu­lous policy and at times inane state­ments, but they fall in line when it comes to guard­ing the fort and if one of them steps out of that line they are os­tra­cized.

On the other hand, the Tories ap­pear timid and are al­ways afraid of how the me­dia or po­lit­i­cal pun­dits might por­tray them in­stead of stick­ing to their core be­liefs. An­drew Scheer has a tough road ahead, I don’t envy him.
