Peter MacKay, Jim Prentice and David Orchard


Media Uninformed

Ottawa, Ontario - Friday, January 17, 2003 - by: Brad Thomson


Even on a day when we have two candidates officially declare, the media continues with its absurd suggestions that the big issue concerns those who have chosen not to run. The standard journalistic remark states that we Tories spend most of our time wallowing in a cesspool of self-pity at the fact that certain individuals have chosen not to enter the race.
  This is ridiculous!




Any time I talk with others, we are pleased with the prospects of such men as MacKay, Prentice and Brison. We don't sit around wishing that Lord, Harris and Tory had entered the race.
  The media is disgracing itself. It is utterly ill-informed.
