I’m here in Markham for the leadership convention for the next leader of the PC Party of Ontario. It’s been a fairly nasty race with some bad blood between a few candidates. Ontario PC conventions have been dramatic in recent years as former leader John Tory defended his job against a Dump Tory campaign and now there’s a looming police investigation over some dirty tricks conducted by one of the campaigns (or an outside agent) against the GOTV efforts of at least one candidate.
I’m off to go and find something interesting to report back here, but in the meantime check out what Calgary Grit describes as the worst campaign song in Canadian political history. Often, supporters come out with music for political campaigns, and this particular video is a bit different. It’s by a young BC based artist and was sponsored by someone on behalf of the Klees campaign. Here it is.
Now that you’ve listened to the magic, I spent five minutes making it more interesting (I thought the rhythm sounded familiar). We’ve seen Hudak vs. Klees and Klees vs. Hudak. Here’s Klees vs. Moby – the remix:
Yikes, I wouldn’t even be able to DJ a
wedding… bar mitzvah… funeral! Anyway, let’s hope I find something more interesting to report here soon. Maybe I’ll bump into Perez Hudak?
