|Happier times, sort of|
Well, that was what I was thinking until these revelations came out. This airing of dirty laundry in public is not helping our party's image, even though the provided excuse for telling Christine Innes that she can't run is a valid one. If the charges against Tony Ianno are legitimate, its hard not to see Christine being complicit, though I would never say that for sure.
Hell, to be honest there isn't a lot I'm sure about. For one, its pretty much confirmed that there was a request from the Leader's office for Christine to step aside and allow Chrystia Freeland to run in the redistributed riding of University--Rosedale in the next general election. No matter how you try to defend it, that is protecting an incumbent - even if its for a good reason, such as trying to avoid infighting, its still the Leader attempting to protect an incumbent. It does not help that the incumbent is someone who people have previously accused the Leader's office of favouring.
