We could be forgiven for not understanding at first blush what we had just witnessed. Make no mistake, after being screwed by the Reform Party, when Manning crossed the floor, then being screwed by The Wild Rose Party, when Michelle Smith crossed the floor, who could blame them for being pissed off and fed up? None of us, truthfully.
When was the last time you heard a federal Quebecois candidate get a standing ovation in Alberta? Never, maybe. I don't recall ever hearing that. Maxime Bernier stood and delivered to the Freedom Conservative Party of Alberta recently. If you haven't seen this speech, take half an hour and watch it. This is the man we need for our country, for many reasons.
If you don't like the PPC, that's fine, but you had better have some facts to back you up, because this party is gaining steam all across this country for good reason.
