Who Do You Love?



I've been thinking about who my favorite MP is and I have a few favorites, Laurie Hawn, and Rona Ambrose come to mind, but if I had to pick only one, it would be Mike Lake, Edmonton-Millwoods-Beaumont. Why?

Superficially, he is young, great looking, has a wife who is beautiful, and a young family. More importantly, with a young family it must be hard to leave to do his job in Ottawa. His son is autistic, making it even harder for him to leave every week. That shows me that he has a high level of commitment to his job and constituents. He makes tired old Iggy look, well, tired and old! Compare him to Hedy Fried, and he comes out aces in the sane department. He is a solid Conservative MP, with enough personality to make him very appealing to voters.

A lot of Reform MP's got elected in Alberta no matter what their qualifications, and are still around. Most are doing good jobs but will never be Ministerial material. Mike Lake came after the reform movement, and has huge potential. I would rate him my favorite up and coming MP.

Now I want you to tell me..."Who do you love" as your favorite MP, of any party, and why. For now I will open up my comment section, so you can champion your favorites. Please remember to keep it "family friendly". Have fun.

He pretty much aces everyone Hunter...I totally agree with you. I have watched him in the last 6 months as he handles himself in front of the cameras. Totally impressed with how he relates to his son. It is awesome to see. I think he brings them as often as he can to see where he works. One time I heard Mike Lake confirming to his son that yes, they would travel on the train at such and such a time.
I need to think about a favorite MP other than your choice. Oh no I don't...I can think of one right from my home province. Her name is Tilly O'Neill Gordon. Tilly represents the Miramichi, New Brunswick riding and is solid as the day is long. When I was keeping up my blog, I had featured her in one of my posts. Hard working solid Canadian who hopes to keep Miramichi Conservative when the next elections comes. Her family worries (she has five sisters) that she works too hard. I will watch this comment space with interest.

I see LS is at it again, imitating Neo. Not the first time, and probably not the last.

Now you can see why I moderate comments, the lefties are just to juvenile to be trusted, and they want to run Canada? Yikes!

You Sure got hit with a "slim-bye".

I like my MP - Gary Lunn. He does a lot for the area, speaks well, listens to concerns and sure participates in local affairs. Minister for Sport had a big job during the Vancouver games - did very well.
