Conservative Taxpayers Federation

Lest there be any doubt where the Canadian Taxpayers Federation’s loyalties lie we now have the latest CTF leader to join the ranks of full-fledged Tories. Kevin Gaudet, former federal and Ontario director of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation, will be acclaimed as the candidate in the riding of Pickering-Scarborough East. He will replace Salman Farooq, who quietly abandoned his provincial election bid last month days before being charged with fraud.

This is not Gaudet’s first try at getting elected. He ran as the Reform candidate in the 1995 Federal By-Election in Ottawa-Vanier.

I guess the CTF is more concerned with their personal electoral success than “protecting taxpayers.”

Just to remind you of some other former CTFers turned Tory:

Jason Kenney, Former CEO: Federal Minister of Citizenship and Immigration.

John Carpay, Former Alberta director: Reform Party candidate in the riding of Burnaby-Kingsway in the 1993 federal election.

Walter Robinson, Federal director from 1998 to 2004: He left the position to run as a Conservative in the 2004 Federal Election in Ottawa-Orleans.

John Williamson, Former Ontario spokesperson and Federal director: He served as Stephen Harper’s Communication Director and is the Federal Conservative candidate for the riding of New Brunswick Southwest for the next election.
