Voters in the 905 hear Harper's call
Jan. 12, 2006. 06:29 AM

If Stephen Harper is to win a Conservative government in a dozen days, it will be built in part on the long-sought breakthrough in Ontario, most especially in the 905 ridings of Greater Toronto, and would mark a couple of firsts.

Harper would be the first baby boomer elected prime minister in this country — Kim Campbell never having been chosen by voters and, in any case, hardly warming the chair long enough to matter.

That may be a demographic milestone more of interest than of import. But the other is not.

For Harper would also be the first suburban leader on the national stage — a man of, by and for the suburbs, a leader whose victory, should it come, might be seen to formally mark the transfer of power in the country from the downtowns to the places for which people and money have long since departed.
