Brown would not have won anyway
Pierre all the way! Singhdeau goin down.
Patrick Brown must have been doing way better than anyone predicted. That's why the pulled the rug out from under him. Threatens P.P's chances at being leader. Gotta love politics.
So I’m guessing the conservative leadership in deciding to anoint Poilievre and embrace the dark side are gonna go full GOP. Great now we can anticipate a full blown culture war north of the border to.
How long until he joins LPC? I'd say less than a month.
He was unjustly ousted before when he was head of the provincial Conservatives.

We already have a PM like this, this is the same we would get with Patrick Brown.

Vassy is gaining weight
The city of Brampton was paying the salaries of his campaign “volunteer”!

By their actions the have given the drama teacher another four years and possibility a majority government. Patrick Brown is a man of substance unlike many other politicians. Mr. Brown Brampton will always have respect for you. Pierre Pollivere is a DJT clone
Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy
That was the one candidate that could have won an election. While they allow israeli lobbyist baber and pierre on their leadership canada will not choose conservative
