The Truth: Really, this is absurd beyond belief.
Myth: Garth Turner is polling well.
The Truth: We still have pipelines into the party, and the local numbers indicate that Halton is truly in play.
If it wasn't a close race, why would we care? Lisa Raitt would lose and the back room boys in Ottawa would learn a lesson. But Lisa Raitt is definitely in contention, and we're concerned that the people in Ottawa will start to think that they know better than local riding associations. For the long term health of our party, we need the back room brokers to trust us on the ground.
Don't vote for Garth Turner, the man who sold his riding out.
Don't vote for Lisa Raitt, the woman who was handed this riding by people who think they own it.
This message from long time Conservatives who care about how both Garth Turner and Lisa Raitt have undermined democracy in our riding. Halton deserves better.
