I can't believe this topics isn't blowing up the forum! What is going on? Why did he choose this time to announce resignation? I've heard lots of speculation, but none of it makes sense. What are your thoughts?

I guess it's indicative of the activity on this forum.....if we didn't have few threads like "heat pumps" there wouldn't be too much activity here.

I am so Glad to see Ghiz go. The sight of him and his voice makes me sick.

What also makes me sick is seeing all the Ghiz supporting comments on some forms indicating what a good job he has done. WTH ? It is disappointing to see some many delusional people :(

Ghiz is a failed little boy child that lived off daddy's money and connections.
Islanders are suckers basically because the let this little incompetent dictate for them.
He won't be missed.
Nothing will change though. Islanders are not smart. They will continue to vote for people who have no interest in what is best for PEI. They will vote liberal because daddy voted liberal. They will vote conservative because daddy voted conservative.
There are not enough intelligent Islanders to actually make a change.

As much as I think you're probably a tad extreme in your political views, some of your comments do come close to some truth.

Oh I don't know, how about the HST? How good is it for Islanders now? what happened to all that "bribe money" from harper? did any Islander profit from it like ghiz and the cronies? No I don't even want to prove they benefited from it, he would not have done it if it didn't benefit him. So much money wasted away by him, while eastern and western towns close hospitals schools. The man is was and always will be a joke.

What if Mr.Ghiz is just the front man and is being told what to do by the back room?

It would just prove he is not a leader. Just a tool of the party.
All the more reason to vote them all out of office.

Aren't all leaders of parties just tools of the backbench decision makers?

The parties are the problem with government not the people i think.
If all elected members were independent. Then any member would be held accountable by all the other members. So one would think this would eliminate patronage and favoritism within the system.

I agree 100%. We could fix a lot of this with proportional representation even within the current party system.
