There is something to be said about a tightly contested political fight.
A political convention where a leader is chosen following weeks of lofty rhetoric is interesting and the proper way to go.
The PC party has dealt itself its Achilles heel with resignations in its leadership campaign leading to a coronation of a man with no experience.
I don’t know Frank Coleman but I do know he is a very successful businessman with a lot of respect in the province. But, a successful businessman a premier does not necessarily make.
What happens after Coleman is crowned premier and he sits behind the most powerful desk in Confederation Building? He will quickly realize that government is not just cheque-writing.
One must wonder how a man who has no experience in running (a) a political party and (b) a government with staggering needs can survive (even if for a short period).
Coleman, right now, appears to be a hollow political leader and certainly not a premier. This latest move by the Tories as a whole will do little for the party or for a province in dire straits.
The Progressive Conservative party has shot itself in the foot — again.
