All the talk lately in Ontario has been about how Olivia Chow has blown her lead in the polls in the run up to the Ontario election.
I remind people the election isn’t for another 10 days and we won’t really know if she has blown it until the night of the 15th.
But if she has here is my take on why that might have happened.
If you recall in August there was the incident regarding the so-called tweet from Warren Kinsella and all the nonsense about it being racist.
That was Chow’s moment to shine and show the people of Toronto she was a leader.
She should have gotten out in front of it herself and not sent Jamey Heath out to take care of it.
I believe in that moment she showed the good folks of TO she wasn’t a leader.
I mean let’s face it, that not what Jack Layton would have done would he.
He would have walked out with his big smile and said he made and mistake and asked for forgiveness.
Had Chow done that, she would be ahead.
If she loses she has nobody to blame but her self, the tweet was her moment and she blew it.
