The Progressive Conservative candidate that has been selected to run in Tim Hudaks old riding of Niagara West-Glanbrook is younger than Tim was when he started.
A lot younger.
He’s 19 year old Sam Oosterhoff who is currently enrolled at Brock University as a political science student.
Wow! I knew the second generation of Trudeaumania would young things up a bit not to the point where shaving may be a pre-requisite.
At first glance ones reaction is ‘about time’.
The Conservatives both federally and provincially have been characterized as being old, stuffy and out of touch.
Many have been questioning what the new face of Conservatism would look like in this country.
Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown says the by-election sends a “positive message of change.”
But is it really change, or a page out of your great grandfather’s conservative playbook?
Seems the young candidate was not Browns first choice, is very social conservative, and appeals more to the religious right.
The youngster is still questioning the Liberals sex ed curriculum after most, including his leader, have moved on.
The last thing the Conservatives need now, is the old school, in new clothes.
We already have that with the Wynne Liberals.
I’m Scott Thompson.
Tuesday on The Scott Thompson Show!
