Liberals Vulnerable To Tories: Ken Dryden

The next Election in York Centre should be interesting. Despite his legendary status in the sport of hockey, Liberal MP Ken Dryden only won by less than 6% in 2008 in a riding that has been Liberal red since 1962. Dryden won this riding by 23% in 2006, and by 29% in 2004. So what happened Ken? Perhaps the media does not give enough credit to the inroads Conservatives have made in Toronto, and have continued to deny it after the historic victory by Rob Ford. It is as though Toronto elected Mike Harris to be mayor, but CBC's Evan Soloman did not consider Ford to be a big enough 2010 newsmaker to add him to his newsmaker of the year poll.

Ken Dryden should go back into hockey. That's where he belongs, not politics.

  1. Maybe he could play for that phantom team in Quebec.

  4. Dryden rarely speaks in the House and always looks totally bored and uninterested in proceedings.
    Probably time to slink back into obscurity Kenny.
