My ex-wife is a socially conservative fiscal liberal. My current girlfriend is a socially progressive fiscal centric. My parents are socially and fiscally liberal.

Several of my friends are still members of the Conservative Party - in fact, I helped recruit them.

I'd expect that should I run for office, somebody I know will dislike or disagree with a position I hold. Or, at some level, they might like me but dislike my political partisan association.

Why should it be any different for Ms. Krieber? Is she just supposed to be a partisan Liberal? I still remember the lady that shook my hand and told me to work very hard during the last campaign at Mr. Dion's stop in Pickering. She wanted Mr. Dion elected Prime Minister.

She doesn't want Mr. Ignatieff elected Prime Minister. I do. We have a difference of opinion.

That's a non-issue.

The Marlies

The Toronto Marlies are a better hockey team than the Toronto Maple Leafs. I have a far better time watching the Marlies - more action, more effort, more everything.

Just switch the two.

Don't call them the Leafs, either, when the switch happens. Call them the Marlies.

Finally, Conservatives Set to Increase Public Healthcare Funding

It's true.

They were out there trying to gather as many signatures as possible for our petition to get Gordon Brown to commit to protecting the [National Health Service] from any spending cuts.

Yes, the state of the public finances calls for serious cuts in public spending.

And yes, tough decisions will have to be made that many may find unacceptable.

But when you are doing such difficult things it is vital that as a government, you take people with you.

And one of the ways we want to do that is to protect the institution that we all care most about.

So the Conservatives will increase spending on the NHS every year so we can protect frontline services.

We’ve made our decision on the NHS, when are Labour going to make theirs?

Yes, it's the British Conservative Party.

See, it sounds conservative, but at the same time, sounds Conservative, if you know what I'm talking about.
