Frank Klees Interview

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Frank Klees is a man of experience. With fourteen years serving as an MPP, experience in the cabinets of both Mike Harris and Ernie Eves, along with years of work in the business sphere, Mr. Klees brings this experience to his campaign and its policies. Combined with this experience is a practical streak tending towards getting elected. In this interview he spoke about staying away from the lightning rod issue of the Human Rights Commission along with his position on handling the HST issue if elected premier, both positions practical and not overly ideological.

Tim Hudak Interview

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Tim Hudak has a good mix of youthfulness and experience. Speaking with him you get a real sense of the sincerity he brings to his work as an MPP and his belief that he is seeking his party’s leadership for the right reasons. Many have said that Hudak is a second generation Harris, but it is clear in speaking to him and hearing his ideas for his party and Ontario that he is his own man.

Randy Hillier Interview

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

The single largest impression I got from my time speaking with Randy Hillier and observing him at the debate, both on and off camera was the passion he brings to the issues he champions and his candidacy in general. I observed him truly in his element after the debate as he worked the halls as people exited. Always smiling, frequently laughing with party members, Hillier demonstrated an ease and comfort at connecting with people on a personal level. His sincerity may be his candidacy’s greatest asset.

Christine Elliott Interview

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Christine Elliott’s candidacy is in many ways refreshing. When speaking with her both on and off camera it was very easy to get a real sense that she has a desire to help everyday Ontarians and the province as a whole. As a candidate she has demonstrated a boldness that is admirable and developed a platform of ideas that in many ways isn’t ideological. In politics, regardless of party, this fairly unique and for those who vote on issues, it has the potential to be engaging.
