    NO DANNY!!! NO!!! You should be supporting Lisa not trying to undermine her support or divide the liberals in her riding. The liberal party encourages participation, but this is the very type of back-stabbing that makes trusting you difficult and very likely the reason that you cannot win an election. Cartwright-L'Anse au Clair needs a proven winner as a liberal candidate, not a proven loser, stay in the backrooms Danny!
