Wynne downplays effect of senior Liberals not seeking re-election

Premier Kathleen Wynne is downplaying the impact two senior cabinet ministers deciding not to run again will have on her chances in the 2018 election.

Wynne was reacting today to a Friday announcement that neither deputy premier Deb Matthews or Treasury Board President Liz Sandals will seek re-election.

Wynne thanked both women for their commitment to public service, adding that people sacrifice a lot to enter politics.

Like their poverty and conscience.

  • It’s rats leaving a sinking ship. No one can spin that positively.

      Oh she’ll try to spin it. Wynne’s lost touch with reality since she’s been lying her ass off going back to when she was a school board trustee.

    people sacrifice a lot to enter politics, like honesty & the public’s best interests

      Some people really do sacrifice a lot, but I’m gonna guess that these didn’t.

        Yes, but they are extremely rare.

          I think that they may have gone extinct around the same time as the passenger pigeon.

    Wynne has already started her scare tactics. She is accusing her twin brother Patrick Brown of being Trump. We can expect in the coming months rants about islamophobia, homophobia, and lots of trips by Trudeau to support her. And of course she will offer lots of FREE STUFF!!

      Patrick Brown, the butch, is accused of being Trump? I have trouble trying to envision Patrick grabbing a pussy until he is grabbing himself.

        Ooops we assumed his pronoun

  • Sharkibark

    How about senior baby boomer liberals not voting for more entitilements “they worked for?”

  • bverwey

    Kathleen Wynne “that people sacrifice a lot to enter politics” like her soul maybe when she did. Makes me gag.

    GLLKDW was selected to lead the gang’s Ontario branch because she had the most incentive to keep “retrired” Grits and her own self jail free. She has done an excellent job thus far. Not that she deserves total credit, her serial fellow “opposition party” leaders have made yeoman efforts to persuade the electorate that they are never going to rise avove the level of ineffectual boobs .

    Liz Sandals is among the most disgusting creatures to ever walk upon Canadian soil. If she has any children, I am surprised one of them didn’t kill her yet.

      Liz S(c)andals not re-offering? The horror!
