Eves, Ernie

Defeated Ontario Premier. His Brylcreem hairdo and Paul Lynde lisp are enough to make you wonder where he came from and who he was hanging out with. His political assets are the leaders of the parties opposing him, the fact that he isn’t Mike Harris, and Isobel Bassett. There’s something likable and trustworthy about this guy, but how far can people trust a man who wants to govern a province with a political party that doesn’t want to govern anything, wants to sell off Ontario’s public assets at deep discounts, and all too obviously enjoys beating up on the poor? Not enough for Ontario’s voters to allow him to continue Harris’ Common Sense Revolution.
