Well I am certain he knows what the word means. Implementation of that quality is another thing.
Case in point: Doug Ford.
The Toronto Star reports that earlier this spring "Tory leader Tim Hudak later said he was 'excited to have Doug potentially on board' for the next provincial election and a shot at defeating Premier Kathleen Wynne’s minority Liberals."
Same paper, in the same article today "Progressive Conservative House Leader Jim Wilson [says]...'He is not our candidate...I don’t even know the guy..." Under the bus goes Mr. Ford.
Loyalty, it is another quality Mr. Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives lack.
