bourque hates martin!

Well, since the CBC wants to interview Rick about his blog and another campaign worker who blogs, and BBS is out of town, I guess that leaves me, so updating my blog for the first time in almost a month seemed like the right thing to do.

The media has picked up on the Income Trust scandal and left us all with great viewing/listening material over the past few days (like Ralph Goodale defending himself in front of the Liberal Party logo while being interviewed about the criminal investigation he's become involved in); there's plenty of blogging material to go around.

Besides, there's such a fun image to post today!

Harper visits Windsor

So I'm hyperactive after an awesome event with Harper today in Windsor.

There were so many supporters that they were overflowing out of the room! Spirits were high as I used my security badge/status to keep people in line outside the event before they opened the room as I announced that due to overwhelming Conservative support in Windsor and Essex County, there would be a bit of a wait to get downstairs to the event. The media had to shove their way through the crowd to get a shot over the cheering supporters and make their comments on camera. And, as is usually the case, with the leader's tour comes a visit or two with old friends.

Now I'm back at the office and our phone bank is hummin' along... just because the leader was here doesn't mean we get the day off, after all.

exams + elections

I don't know how many other bloggers out there are in this position, but let me tell anyone who's not - worrying about final exams at election time really, really sucks.

Even in my exam inspired solitude, I can't overlook the fact that Harper will be visiting Windsor on Tuesday, and everyone's invited!

Now if I could just get through this week, practically moving into our campaign office won't be a problem.

left wing news

Too good not to share.

(Click on the image if the stuff at the side of my blog is obscuring it for you.)

I got a kick out of it, anyway...

handgun ban??

OK so I haven't been updating as much as advertised, but the rumours of a Liberal policy announcement tomorrow are just too much for me to take.

A BAN on all handguns?

I seriously hope that Canadians squash the Liberals like a mosquito you feel just starting to bite your arm (quickly, messily and over zealously, in case you were curious) for even thinking about proposing something this disgusting.

In other news, our early voting effort is going well. How's yours?

Bernier's bad bet

Adrian Wyld/Canadian Press Maxime Bernier is taking a gamble. He believes that there is a large, disenfranchised voting bloc in Canada...
