Despite changing the minds of a few Manitoban's he did not change enough. Imagine how they might have fared had the run a good campaign?

Hopefully, the next person will offer a more traditional Conservative platform.

I think our have not province is loaded with have not citizens, who are smart enough to vote for the party that is best able to look after them!

We got the party that we deserve and they have been doing an absolutely adequate job for most of us!

Look we have the Jets back, we have a new stadium being built, and most of all we have a $360 billion dollar Human Rights Museum being built that has brought 256,000 new construction jobs, and when it opens next summer will bring another 146,00 jobs to run it!

This is all under Mcfadyn's fantastic control.

We will become a have province by the time the 80 new Jets, all millionaire's salary is invested into the community, with custom sofas and custom drapery by Elan! lol

I am not sure if the above 2 comments are compliments, so I will take them as that.

Thanks guys! Make sure that you get out next summer when I have a barbeque to say hello to everyone.

Sorry I haven't been able to have one this year, but my health hasn't allowed me to be mobile.

I am hoping that the NDP's promise to invest in health care will allow a few thousand dollars to enable my neuro surgeon to figure out the problem,

Rosie you should have stopped after the first paragraph. Then we would have donated your brain to the Smithsonian for analytical excellence. And the rest of your body to the traveling Wonders Show.

More reasons why I won't vote for the Tories again.

Some people haven't yet realized that the Manitoba PC Party is dead

"Any new leader of the Conservatives comes in knowing he or she is looking at four years in the wilderness followed by at least four more in limbo. In other words, the Tories are electing a caretaker leader, not a potential Premier, someone who will spend the next four years twisting this way and that to repudiate the 2011 election platform, while staring into the abyss.

And let's not overlook the wild card. Sooner or later someone from the Liberal Party in Manitoba is going to realize the golden opportunity just sitting there for the taking. Change the leader, change the name, a clean break with the dying federal party and a small shift to the right (not hard with the Conservatives staked out to the left of the NDP) and you start bleeding off voters from the Tories. What's your guess? We say conservatively 20 percent of the Tory vote would move."

We need a new party!

It took a new party/brand to dethrone the natural governing party of Saskatchewan and that's what we need here. The NDP party leader Dwain Lingenfelter didn't even hold his seat - and they parachuted him into a strong riding to ensure he would win. Good riddance. This is the low-down though. The PC's and Liberal party here in Manitoba are contemplating a unification that would be branded the Manitoba Party. So this is already in the works.

Hard to believe that the Tories would agree to this but who knows.

You'll just have to trust that it's from the inside track. Further negotiating will be needed on the Justice platform otherwise they are virtually equal today.

That's a huge surprise. If the people merging those two parties are the same people that ran the PC campaign in the last two elections it'll simply be more of the same populist policies just to get elected...

We need a real difference maker to run this province.

We need parties with clear and strong differences to achieving the same overall goals, ie. quality of life, low crime, economic prosperity, etc.

Trying to mimic one another just confuses people.

Whatever the Tories try to do, if it's not going to make a difference, donars should tell them that they are refusing to make Donations until the Party gets it act together.

Hurt 'em in the pocket book, then they will pay attention.

I wouldn't put much credit in the 'track'.

Perhaps the Liberal is looking for a merger but I very much doubt it.
