Soo will definitely go Blue as the Ontario Tories take Sault Ste. Marie

Just as the Province of Ontario dislike Kathleen Wynne, the City of Sault Ste. Marie dislike Debbie Amaroso, with similar reasons being why Christian Provenzano is the Mayor now and Charles Sousa should be the Premier, but as former Liberal MPP David Orazietti looked to be replaced by Amaroso, a very strong Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario candidate there in Ross Romano, running along with him in the byelection are Ontario New Democratic Party candidate Joe Krmpotich, and the Green Party candidate Kara Flannigan, leading fringe with perennial Pauper John Turmel, Libertarian Gene Balfour, None of the Above Noneof Zabove, yet without a candidate from the Trillium Party candidate despite becoming the fourth party in Queens Park just last week amongst the fringe. Over half the general election vote makes up byelections, top issue for this byelection being the leadership of the Wynne Liberals and whether the Soo trusted it or wanted change has been the biggest talk on the street. The First of June seems more easy than most to call, as the Ontario Tories despite a hiccup losing a caucus member and under a dark cloud over talk of fixed nomination races still have the edge over the government of the day, so Romano will likely gain 40% and win the seat, this changes from third to first thus third becomes second being Krmpotich and the Neodemos place second with 30 percent of the vote, Amaroso and the Grits take up third with 20 in percentage, as Flannigan and the Greens finish with fourth at more or less than 2% for party funding, from the fringe I actually think the fight for fifth gathering less than 1% of the vote starts with the battle of the high profile odd names with None of the Above Zabove will get sixth and the Pauper Turmel seventh, while Libertarian Balfour ends out in eighth.

Sault Ste. Marie gives the Ontario Tories a foothold in the North to call their own, without this riding going into the general election next year it would be hard to believe they would even have a chance unseating the Grits from their powerbase in Toronto, as the Ontario Liberals will now have to divide its preelection spending not just in their Big City but also the Great White North.

A very old and tired message was flogged again by loyalists of Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberals as their political team of Queens Park insiders tried all their very best to scare the votes out from the voters of the Soo, but it backfired as the ageist threats of not having experience at their cabinet table levelled by Amaroso towards Romano came back like a boomerang across the community, giving Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown and his party a boost from the byelection protest vote. Andrea Horwath and her Ontario New Democrats on their other hand must be feeling quite the opposite, being the former default vote for the people of Sault Ste. Marie being a riding for unionized labour, heavy metal, hard rock, and city of steel and iron, if they cannot win or even compete to win in such a region as this, any party has a chance to change the position of the current third party at Queens Park which opens up the opposition for the first time in decades. The government party is being protested again but not heavily enough right now, we have to wait under year to see just how much the present opposition parties which break from the Legislature and those outside the House in the future can gain in the next twelve months to see where exactly the Soo and the rest of you across the province are then.
