Tony Saxon of the Guelph Mercury got the picture that tells the tale. Ontario's Conservative leader, Tim Hudak, serving out the beer during the early days of this provincial election. Mid-week at the end of the work day, it's a classic Canadian political scene. He looks comfortable. Like the suddenly departed Jack did. And waaaay more comfortable than national Conservative leader, Prime Minister Harper.
It's not just a campaign stop. Hudak has spoken up for better access to budget beer. Will he come out in favour of Ontario craft beer, too, like rival Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty did? We'll see. He did hit a ribs and craft beer fest this summer.
