Shameful behaviour by one of Tim Hudak's MPP's here, personally intimidating a constituent for daring to publicly voice an opinion that Murdoch disagreed with. Here's what Murdoch said to Ed King after he wrote a letter to the editor criticizing the decision of Mike Harris receiving an honourary degree from Nippissing University:
“I read your article that you put into the Toronto Star. My advice to you now would be not to run for council in Hanover. I’ve had at least 10 calls this morning criticizing you. I want to tell you, if Mike Harris ran today, he would win! And now you’ve dumped on him, you have just killed your prospects of winning in Hanover. Remember, Hanover is a Conservative town and always will be and now that you’ve shown your colours, you’ve sort of ruined your chances to run for council. So my advice is, don’t spend the money on it now. Sorry. I thought you might have done something. But you spoke out of turn when you went against Mike Harris in the Toronto Star.”
With Hudak saying he wants to look at democratic reform in this province, a good place to start would be to examine how he as leader can condone one of his frontbench critics personally intimidating and threatening a constituent for the high crime of criticism of a former public figure. This is what we can expect from Tim Hudak, a return to the bad old days.
