Welcome to the Trough Mr. Hillier.

As predicted right here on the Velvy back in January 2005, Mr. Randy Hillier - professed savior of all Rural Ontario - is indeed running for provincial office. While we predicted the riding of Ottawa West-Nepean back then, Mr. Hillier has instead set his glorious eyes on the newly formed Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. A hodgepodge of locales consisting mainly of commie Lanark County and its progressively minded environs.

Yet, like the Velvet Lounge, it appears that the provincial PCs are just as reluctant in embracing this apostle of the people. When the rube retired from the Lanark Landowners Association - not a month ago, mind you - he planned to 'take a needed rest and the time to enjoy his family'. But we knew better - the provincial legislature has just raised mpps salary 25%. Who could resist?

In the end, I hope he gets the nomination. If so, he's guaranteed a seat. And with Hillier having a seat, we're all guaranteed a few good laughs. The man is just not a carny, he's the whole damn carnival.
