How Alison Redford’s candidate John Barlow was even allowed to run as a Conservative nomination candidate has shown to me just how far the CPC HQ has strayed from the days I worked there.
I’ve held my tongue on my own personal experiences dealing with the CPC party brass about how they tried to stop me from running as a nomination candidate and gamed the election so it was impossible for me to win but I won’t keep silent any longer – enough is enough.
The director of political operations Jenni Byrne has now allowed a Manchurian candidate by the name of John Barlow to be nominated in the heart of Conservative country and for this, she needs to be removed:
John Barlow was literally the odd man out in the battle for the Conservative nomination in the federal riding of Macleod that was fuelled by a debate over gun rights and the RCMP`s seizure of firearms from evacuated homes in High River during Alberta’s floods last June.
But Saturday night he defeated three other candidates to earn the right to carry the Conservative banner in the sprawling, rural riding that stretches from south of Calgary down to the foothills of southwestern Alberta, including the town of High River. (see here)
This is the guy who ran for the hard-core progressive Alison Redford against Wildrose leader Danielle Smith in the last provincial election and then attacked her afterwards using his position as editor of a local newspaper to do so:
Does Smith and the Wildrose party truly believe High River, Okotoks and Alberta RCMP officers conspired to plunder residents’ homes?
The accusation is absolutely ridiculous and Smith who, ironically, stayed in her High River home after the flood should be embarrassed.
And while a nomination candidate, deleted a pro-gun grab Facebook posting and sent out his mouth-piece to ludicrously say his Facebook account was hacked (see both here).
If anyone tries to tell me this is a national party decision then they can demand executive director Dimitis Soudas hand in his resignation as well but I know how things really work and this is on the head of Jenni Byrne.
The internal war has started and it’s time to take our party back.
