With all the recent defections from the Wildrose party, it should be borne in mind that Joe Anglin did not really win

Dear Editor,

With all the recent defections from the Wildrose party, it should be borne in mind that Joe Anglin did not really win in this constituency, but rather, that Ty Lund lost.

The Wildrose support was really a protest vote, which is ironic as it was the ultra-right protesting against the right.

There isn’t actually anything very new in this; not like, for instance, if the defectors had gone to the Liberals, or the NDP. Now, that would have been something really newsworthy.

Small ‘c’ conservatism will rule this province for generations to come.

Let’s just hope Jim Prentice remembers that the ‘p’ in the PC party stands for progressive.
