If MHA Paul Lane expects voters to believe his reasons for his defection from Kathy Dunderdale’s Conservative army, then in terms of an IQ test that rates about a minus 0.
Lane says, “People have lost faith in the Dunderdale government.” Really, Paul? That means they have lost faith in you too, doesn’t it?
Lane must remember that his vote of confidence in this year’s budget is recorded on the books. His second thoughts on Bill 29 and the January blackouts are next to laughable.
Paul Lane is a PC elected by supporters of the Progressive Conservative party. He is abdicating his responsibilities to those who put him in office. He is walking away (like Jerome Kennedy did) leaving his constituents without representation in the current administration. The least Lane could have done is to stay neutral. Why didn’t he sit as an independent until the next election? That is the right and proper thing to do.
It’s too late to save your reputation now, Paul. You are just like the other defectors, looking out for No. 1. I am sure people all over the province are seeing through this decision of yours.
The rats are leaving the ship, one by one. In cases like that, I can imagine any captain of any ship will breathe a sigh of relief when they’re gone.
