    MacLauchlan is trying to demonstrate that he is willing to "listen" to people who disagree with him. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Let's face it, Ghiz was always a disgrace to the Premiership, and apparently will be, right up to the last minute. Maybe he is trying to get a job offer from one of the other Premiers, and that is why he is trotting off to India again WITH THEM .

    People want to hear from you, Wade, they don't want to hear from some panelists, they may not even come out, other than the converter. They want to hear nitty gritty ideas for fixing all the wrongs Ghiz has done to us. To get a useless conservative young lad, following a useless liberal young lad would be heartbreaking

    Wade will likely be the next premier. I love his book, "The Prince Edward Island Premier Who Rocked The Cradle." Wade appears to have aspirations and outlooks and a personality like Alex Campbell and that is what we need for PEI's next Premier. Go for it Wade!

      It is too bad Wade doesn't have a whole new running mates as this last crew just can't get the job done.Almost all or thier famililies got PNP monies with no legitimate companies. Wade can't change that baggage.

    The annointed one is not even waiting for baby ghiz to leave office before taking over leadership duties. Funny how the hypocrite ghiz seems to think he is still on the job when it comes to taking international trips on the tax payer's tab but not so much when it comes to his duties at home.
