Draft Fortier

Ralph Klein is certainly an equal opportunity shit disturber - he's determined to cause Stephen Harper as much grief as he ever caused Paul Martin and Jean Chretien. After costing him the 2004 election, and predicting Harper would lose in 2006, he's now let it slip that Senate elections may be on the way this fall (or not...Ralph has "clarified" his statement, by making it murkier).

On this topic, I do hope that the Bert Browns and Ted Mortons of the world who believe in accountability and an elected Senate will join me in encouraging Michael Fortier to resign his Senate seat and run in the upcoming Senate elections, whenever they may take place.

  • Get a life, CG.

    There is no push for early Senate elections in QC. The PM has indicated that Fortier will run in the next election. That's good enough for most Quebeckers and it's good enough for me.

    Now, let's move on to worrying about implementing good public policy and what's right for the country....

  • You're weeks behind CG.

    There was a lot of speculation that Fortier would run in Paul Martin's riding.

    But Fortier is on the record that he would prefer to run for a permanent Senate seat in the first Senate election.

  • Anon; Fortier has said he won't run in a byelection.

    I'd be really surprised if he runs for a Senate seat. Really surprised.

  • cg: Not a clue how to see archival footage of Mike Duffy Live, but if you can get it, on Feb. 14th you will find Fortier on camera saying that his preferred alternative is to run in the first senate election.

    He did not rule out other alternatives, but stated this was his preferred alternative. CP has never picked this up and keeps referring to earlier speculation.
