Nothing really in the news about this stuff... but check out twitter and the interwebs

Kevin Chief donates to Liberals

http://farnwide.blogspot.com/2010/11/ndps-winnipeg-north-candidate-donated.html

Kevin Lameroux demands the NDP and Kevin Chief apologize and stop playing games

http://kevinlamoureux.liberal.ca/blog/open-letter-from-kevin-lamoureux-to-kevin-chief/

pundits guide wraps it all up nicely
http://www.punditsguide.ca/2010/11/liberals-still-smarting-over-axworthy-endorsement-ndp-says/


http://twitter.com/search?q=%23byelxn40



but anyway... so whats with the local newsies ignoring this crap?

okay obviously none of it helps Julie Javier so the sun is staying out of it. But you would think the freep would at least publish its Candidates stuff. But then again.. perhaps the freep is confused and does not know who to support ..lib or ndp?


But really what use is our news if they just simply refuse to even get involved in this election in any real way?

HELL in the other ridings the newsies are the ones organizing debates and such.


hey free press .. you can stop your charade of a democracy project any time soon eh?



done venting.

It is surprisingly quiet. Let's puts some of the onus on the candidates themselves. Maybe some blame on the weather. Mebee theyse all plum wored out from the mayer race...

Or maybe it's the north end and no one gives a sh1t...

Dean. You really think there is a difference between the NDP and the Federal Liberals...especially where it comes to sitting in a back bench spouting party bullsh it?

Local news coverage sucks. I would suggest a candidate come out as gay and hold up a bank while setting himself on fire attempting to install a camera by an ATM all the while spray painting gang markings on the walls

When the race is between a NDP'er who has lived off the public purse his whole working career and an ex-provincial Liberal, how excited are we supposed to get?

Or a PC candidate who can't even do her own commercials and needs the leader of her party to do it for her? Just heard a radio spot for Julie Javier and the whole spot was done by Harper. It has been rather quite I will admit in the news as well as in the mailbox. The most propaganda I have had is from Kevin Chief and he is even door knocking in the riding, which I think is a lot more than any of the others are doing.

We got a very strange "letter" yesterday from Javier. It was done in a fake handwritten type font, the envelope was addressed to our last name and the salutation included first names for my wife, myself, daughter and #3 son. If they got it from the voters list, they missed # 1 and #2 son. Wasn't a good idea to leave off 2 potential supporters because, if you're a Conservative running in the north end, you need all the votes you can muster

Just heard the radio spot again and it was Vic Toews' voice.

Javier has not attended any of the get-togethers of the 7 candidates , similar to the one that DeanK did several weeks ago!
The Communist didn't make one last Friday! he used the excuse that he was needed ploughing some corn fields or snow! lol
