Keep it up, Diane. You’re doing the work for us.

Rural areas in the SW part of Ontario tend to traditionally vote Conservative. The riding of Haldimand-Norfolk is one of those mostly rural areas that tends to follow that pattern, though it was held for a while by Liberal Bob Speller.

Turning your back on this part of the county’s voters is however a no-no, traditional Conservative area or not.  The local issue of tobacco farming buyouts – or the lack therof and the disinterest local MP and Immigration Minister Diane FInley and the Cons. are showing over this – will play a much larger role in this riding then any national issue.  At the rate she’s going at offending and angering her rural constituents here, particularly her tobacco farmer constituents by refusing to meet with them and then citing conflicting reasons for not showing up (her office said “security reasons”, FInley herself said it was “an inappropriate forum” to meet them).

Mrs. Finley is making things a lot easier to return Haldimand-Norfolk to the Liberals next election, under the candidacy of Dr. Eric Hoskins. In fact, I’ll be so bold now for the first time in believing that county is a real opportunity for a Liberal gain in an area that hasn’t been friendly to them the past 2 elections.
