Who Ousted Brent Barr
According to this and a discussed article in the Toronto Star about Doug Finley, the probable orchestrator of the ousting of Gloria Kovach's ill-fated predecessor Brent Barr, former local PC MP Bill Winegard (Barr's frontman) says the ousting did not come from Harper but came from some officially never-named Guelph Conservatives. The request was facilitated by Harper. Since the complaint did not come from those who have ever come forward & given their reasons for ousting Barr, leaving Gloria free to claim a candidacy she had just lost in a local party vote to Barr, it would be nice for the voters of Guelph to know who else besides Finley Gloria Kovach is either in collusion with, or who else it is she now owes a political debt to. There is a hard right wing in Guelph with a deep history through George Drew to pre-second world war support of Mussolini, and post-second world war cold war reactionary capitalism. The non-progressive wing is fighting for its life in Guelph.
