      Right-wing pro-business "liberal".

      Kathleen Wynne is a left of centre Liberal. Not a social democrst like Horwath of course, but a whole bunch better than pooopatello.

      I shall wait for her Cabinet choices before bashing her.

      I live in a very Blue (Conservative!! In our country) riding. I've always voted Orange (NDP) but I'll wait and see.

      My Tory MPP is an a$$h@t. I may well vote Red (Liberal) next time.

      BTW why do Americans switch "red" and "blue" around from the rrst of the world?

      Of course. American "exceptionalism". Sheesh.

        They used to have it right, and somehow switched up when a TV network just started using blue for Democrat and Red for Republican in showing electoral maps.

        Think it happened in the 80s.  Been awhile since I've looked into it.

        Anyway, the Democrats hardly deserve socialist red anymore than the Republicans do.
