May 29, 2007
Ottawa, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement on the results of the election in Prince Edward Island:

“On May 28, 2007 the people of Prince Edward Island exercised their democratic right and elected Liberal leader Robert Ghiz to form their provincial government. I congratulate Premier-elect Ghiz on his successful campaign to lead the province. I look forward to working with him to address issues of importance for the people of Prince Edward Island and for all Canadians.”

Wow, can you tell Ghiz isn’t a Conservative? “exercised their democratic right“? Good grief! I’d be hard pressed to come up with a more bitter, reluctant congratulations. Nice job, Harper.
