Tim Hudak's morning after the night before

| Disqus Comments


Ontario PC leader Tim Hudak woke up a little groggy and grumpy this morning, from the sound of it:

The “tsunami of union bosses” that bought the Kitchener-Waterloo byelection with bused-in muscle is ominous news for Ontario, Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak said Friday.

“I am worried that you’re going to see an arms race between the NDP and the Liberals to see who can get the closest to public sector union power,” Hudak said after his party lost crucial byelections in Kitchener-Waterloo and Vaughan.

“We’re the only party with the guts to say no to the public sector union bosses.”

I liked his “bused-in muscle” flourish, too. Is there a deliberate resonance here suggesting that #KitWat voters were intimidated by thugs? Why, yes, I believe there is.

Was Hudak by chance referring to what in a normal context are called “campaign workers?” What did he have to say about this? Must have missed it.

Love it. A classic example of a sore loser, with emphasis on “loser.”

PS: “Union bosses” is, of course, an oxymoron, but I rather liked the “tsunami” collective noun. Readers are invited to come up with one for “Progressive Conservatives.”
