The Conservative Party slide in this province continued with a Liberal victory in Virginia Waters, my own district.
This in spite of the fact it is the district formerly held by Kathy Dunderdale and despite the efforts of Danny Williams in campaigning for the conservative candidate Danny Breen.
Had Breen resigned his councillor seat prior to the byelection and approached his new political ambitions with confidence and courage, he might have won. Some of us notice these things.
I was a supporter of Sheilagh O’Leary in this byelection and I am certain there is no lack of courage or conviction in that lady.
I noticed, also, that former premier Williams says that they will “bury” us in the general election next year.
Am I the only one who resents this kind of braggadocios and disrespectful posture towards the rest of us?
I may have to vote Liberal next year on the strength of that comment alone.
So, we’ll see Mr Williams … we’ll see.
