Yet another great day yesterday! Worked on some new signs and prepped for the All Candidates Forum.
The ACF went really well, I was able to raise some points and correct some inaccuracies that were brought up by another candidate. I checked with CBC to see if they were going to be posting the forum online, but I have heard back that this is unlikely due to bandwidth issues. Check out Northbeat tonight, I’m sure they’ll have highlights.
I was also happy with the coverage I got in the Weekend Yellowknifer, there was some good info in a couple different stories, and a surprise from the Barbershop Poll that Ragged Ass Barber’s has been running. Apparently I was in third place in their poll behind Dennis and Sandy, and have just recently dropped into fourth, but I still have 19% of the vote!
The opening night for My Fair Lady was also a smash success and I am looking forward to the last little bit of campaigning before election day!
So I had the All Candidates Forum last night, and I did a presentation for a St. Joe’s class earlier in the day. The All Candidates forum went really well. I was able to raise some points on internet access in the communities, and income splitting for families. I’ve been getting really good feedback from people and it’s really encouraging. Only 4 more days left!
I had to take off right after the forum in order to make it to NACC for the preview performance of My Fair Lady, I made it there just in time!
Today I’ve got prep for tonight’s forum, finishing up some signs, and opening night for My Fair Lady!
The old ways of doing things in Ottawa are over. Canadians are tired of parties that don’t represent them, and government that doesn’t work. One way we can fix this is to elect Green MPs to parliament. Elizabeth May is leading in her riding, and we have a chance to send a message to the politicians in Ottawa, that we want change! In this election, we have a chance to send MPs to Ottawa who will shake things up, and get the job done!
On May 2nd, get out there and VOTE! Send those politicians a message, that we aren’t going to take it anymore!
I know that in previous elections, I’ve always known who I’m voting for as soon as the party platforms come out. 5 weeks (or 8 weeks like in the old days), seems excessive to me. I put the question to you, how long do you think a campaign should be?
