I have to think that convincing the up-until-yesterday president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture - who was publicly critical of the Green Shift just a few days ago - to run for the Liberals is going to make it a teensy bit trickier for Jason Kenney
I guess Bob Friesen liked the Green Shift modifications. So much for the "hurting the poor farmer" angle.
Speaking of silly angles, I guess the "Liberals in eastern Canada afraid to run on the Green Shift" theme might have to be scratched off too:
The deputy leader of Nova Scotia's Liberal party says she is considering a jump to federal politics.
Diana Whalen says she is strongly considering running in the federal riding of Halifax, which has been held by New Democrat Alexa McDonough since 1997.
She says she will mull over her options with advisors before making a decision at the end of the week — a federal election call is expected by the weekend for Oct. 14.
Yesterday, the "soft on crime" theme took a hit, now today's developments.
Positive signs indeed.
