Good rid­dance to Ms Am­brose

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Am­brose leaves pol­i­tics with an A+ rat­ing (May 18)

Pre­dictably, with re­gard to the fed­eral Con­ser­va­tive party lead­er­ship race, The Spec­ta­tor la­bels any can­di­date not in line with the pro­gres­sive agenda as ex­treme, and praises Ms. Am­brose’s ef­forts to “change the face” of the Con­ser­va­tive party.

I do not be­lieve her reign as in­terim leader was any­thing to cel­e­brate. In an ef­fort to ap­peal to ur­ban and youth vot­ers, Am­brose worked for the cre­ation of a Lib­eral-lite, me-too ver­sion of her once-great party.

At the fed­eral level, gen­uinely con­ser­va­tive vot­ers have limited op­tions and, not un­like the cur­rent On­tario scene, we now have a party of the left, the far left and the ul­tra­left from which to choose. That is no choice at all.

Good rid­dance, Ms. Am­brose. Jim Hutchin­son, Dun­das
