There’s an interesting piece in Simcoe.com by John Edwards about a Creemore woman who is taking an active role in opposing Simcoe Grey MP Kellie Leitch both as MP and candidate for the federal PC Leadership. (Conservative logo photo: The Conservative Party of Canada/conservative.ca)
Cecily Ross of Creemore felt so strongly, when Donald Trump’s election and his message were embraced by Leitch, she felt she had do something. So she’s created political lawn signs that actually borrow from the anti-Trumpers.
John Edwards quotes Ross in his article: “I think Kellie Leitch is a cynic and an opportunist and is tapping into identity politics to further her political ambitions,” she said. “She’s hoping to stir up people’s fears in order to get press. It worked for (Trump) and I think she’s hoping it will work for her.”
Ross says her signs are a “grass roots” effort. Quick check of her twitter finds that they are available for $10.
