Over the course of the past week, two of Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak’s campaign-trail photo-ops haven’t gone so well. First there was the campaign kick-off event at a music studio, where reporters posed awkward questions about his party’s opposition to music-industry grants. And then, on Saturday, Hudak ran into some problems with transit police after he attempted to stage an event on a TTC subway train without a photography permit, and also in violation of the TTC’s rules against political canvassing. The fascinating thing is that in both cases, when the problems began, Hudak’s expression tightened into the exact same grin, a rictus of perfectly suppressed terror. Is this his DeRozan face?
