Shameless pandering: Try to tell the people what they want to hear

You know, maybe it’s just me, but when Manitoba’s Progressive Conservative party is going around promising it will bring an NHL team back to Winnipeg if elected, you wonder if they aren’t in a bit of trouble. Is that the best they can come up with to convince people to elect them and throw the NDP out?

I love the reasoning too:

The Tory leader says an NHL team would make Manitoba more attractive to young people and help stem the tide of university graduates who leave for Alberta.

Oh yea.. the folks in Churchill will just throng to Winnipeg to buy the expensive tickets once a year. And, I didn’t realize the #1 reason Manitobans were leaving for Alberta was because of the lure of seeing the Flames or Oilers. Do the Manitoba Tories have internal polling that shows this?

Weak, Manitoba PC folks, very weak.
