PC Leadership Race: Grassroot's review of the websites

Paul Synnott at the Grassroot's Voice (formerly Draft a Leader) has reviewed each candidate's website and given them a score out of ten.

Christine Elliott - 6.75

Randy Hillier - 6.25

Tim Hudak
- 5.5

Frank Klees - 0 (doesn't exist)

In general I agree with the scores and the comments that Mr. Synott made. I would have marked Tim Hudak lower but that's only because I am a vindictive person. The splash page really pissed me off the first time I went to the site.

You can't tell much about a candidate by how good their website is, but it does tell you a lot about how good their team is. I am pretty disappointed in Tim Hudak's site. This is not the site of a front runner.

I am also curious about why Mr. Klees does not yet have a campaign website. It supports my personal theory that Mr. Klees decided last minute that he wanted to get into the race. Still, the Internet is a fundamental communication tool of our time. He really should be working quickly to correct the situation.

I don't know, Hugh... All those paisley and muted colours offend my aesthetic sensibilities.

Is the support of Christine based on some affirmative action ideal? I wonder, since she does not come ankle high to Hillier in grasping conservative values.
