The voters of Vancouver Kingsway await with baited breath for Mr. Emerson to put his money (or at least not the liberals this time) where his mouth is and try to get elected in a by-election in the riding.
If he thinks he can win as a Conservative don't bother telling me you can do it. Just do It.
As a matter a fact let him run as an independent, a liberal or and NDP and see if he will win.
I think right now if the conservatives wanted to win the riding, their best bet is to fire Emerson and have him run in the riding for the NDP.
I'm not sure what the riding would do then. They couldn't vote NDP (as that would mean they would have to vote for Emerson), they would be pretty hesitent about voting liberal (after all look what happened last time they elected a liberal), I don't think they would like the conservative option much either. (they would have to drop in a star candidate like Michael Buble and make him sing for his votes to even have a chance )
