Rona Ambrose the Interim Tory Leader

Alberta MP Rona Ambrose stepped into Stephen Harper’s leadership shoes Thursday — albeit on an interim basis — as the Conservatives gathered for the first time since last month’s election demoted them to the official Opposition.

Ambrose, who served as health minister in the last Parliament, had campaigned on a promise to bring a respectful and civil tone to debate in the House of Commons.

“I’m excited that we are going to be moving forward with a strong opposition with confidence and optimism,” she said, flanked by fellow Conservative caucus members chanting her name in support.

“I am extremely proud to be the new leader of the Opposition.”

    Does this mean she won’t put her name in the hat to be actual leader

    • The Butterfly

      We can only hope.

          Cuz she’s smoking hot? If global warming were real, she’d be the cause of it.

            Oh come on, not everything is about sex, you know? (Though come to think of it, she does have this perpetual, rather distracted, sleepy expression which makes me personally think she’d.make a great and competent leader. And judging by the hair, her estrogen levels must be off the charts, also suggesting … good leadership skills!)

      No actual hat could fit on her hair. They have replaced a male helmet-head with a female helmet-head.

    At least the regressive Progressive Conservative troll isn’t here pushing his Joe Clark wet dream party/Party.

          The point of me being a member of the Progressive Canadian party is to balance out the spectrum and as I said before to another person is how do the CONs expect to be a truly national party ever again unless major parties are put either under control or by having state funded campaigns? I am not sure what you mean 50 shades of grey? I am not interested in smut. The fact is I am interested in real discussions in Canada and ways to rescue Canada from corporatism and from globalism and to truly be opposed to the big war agenda.

            You don’t have the intellect with which to discuss ‘things’. Nematodes can wiggle circles around you.

            Okay. He’s talking about something that wasn’t said. I see he’s a nut now and not just wrong. I’ll ignore him in the future.

  • Right Centrism – Canada needs a true alternative for all Canadians and it must be a progressive centre-right alternative that works for all Canadians and not just Western Canadians, when the old Progressive Conservative party of Canada was truly a party that represented all of Canada and did not value incrementalism which is a Republican party idea. Canada has always been for moderation and independence, and that is what Canada should return to.

        William Robert must have realized he’s a great cure for insomnia.

    It’s not a bad strategy coming up against the many women Trudeau has to do the talking. I think it is a good chess move. Brilliant actually.
    Sit back and enjoy the show.

    Nice hair Rona!
