Link is to an interactive map of Canada showing vulnerable ridings.

Pay close attention to those in RED as this represents a Liberal incumbent in need of your support.
BLUE represents ridings with vulnerable Conservative incumbents.

You can make a difference!

A Liberal vote is a vote for Dr Kirsty Duncan.

Not really. Bored to tears. Don't want to hear Stephen Harper say 'Let me make one thing clear..." ever again. Please. The thing I like least about that guy, I discover, is completely nonsensical. He wears too much lipstick.

It was cold on the sidewalk outside, waiting for my ride. Two very nice ladies came up and struck up conversations with me, and one of them warmed my heart by saying maybe Mike has a chance. Could have been Conservatives... I was a Liberal in NDP clothing, after all. I was naive to think CCSVI would be on the debate when the questions all had to be asked by ordinary-looking Canadians. Elizabeth May won.

Vote Liberal anyway. I still like Mike.

Did you notice that Harpo avoided eye contact? I am not a body language expert but I found it very disturbing.

Harper's angle was to look into the camera, I guess....kind of weird....apparently, it worked....he sure was smooth and polished, didn't ruffle a feather (or a hair!)......sort of robotic.....stayed on script, that's for sure.

I think the same person who chose Harper's lipstick must have done his hairspray too.(':P')

As you hear a lot around here: BINGO! I kept whispering about that to my wife, to her annoyance. He may have been playing to the cameras but it is something you are taught in film school, that you should not talk directly into the cameras. I have another theory about what was going on on that stage last night. It seemed to me that (giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he was badly coached) he could not look his opponents in the eye. I am glad it came across just as well on national television as it did on the studio monitors. All we could see from where we were was the back of Steve Paikin's head. We figured it was because they had to get us so far away that even if we had brought unregistered long guns with us and had not registered for the census, we could not get a good shot off. That place was huge! Well lit, though. You could see the body language a continent away.

Through it all, Harper was so implacable that he spoke directly to the camera, ignoring his tormenters, as if he was on a stage all by himself.

Liberals have made no promices

Postby Brightspot » Thu Apr 14, 2011 1:03 pm

The Liberal party has not made any statement regarding their stance on making vascular testing or treatment available to persons with MS. There have been no promices made by any political party regarding the issue.

Kirsty Duncan has done a lot of great work to raise the issue and to represent our best interests, but many of her Liberal associates are not on board.

Please engage your federal and provincial representatives and the candidates from all parties at every opportunity.

Make sure they have information about the issue and ask each one what their position is.

Then decide where your vote should go

Might be useful if I knew everybody's party affiliation. Anybody know where Election Canada keeps their master list?
