1 Why Susan Auch and Gord Steeves failed to win on Wed Oct 05, 2011 12:42 pm

That's what I'm wondering.

3258 votes - Susan Auch, a star candidate.

5093 votes - Jim Rondeau, a guy who has done nothing for the area. A do-nothing minister. Pretty useless.

How the heck didn't she win??

--------

4571 - Gord Steeves. Well-known former city councillor and an attorney. Huge leadership potential.

5495 - Teresa Oswald. She's done nothing in the Health portfolio. In fact, healthcare is worse now than it has ever been. She has no accomplishments to speak of.

Should have been a shoo-in for the superior candidate, Gord Steeves. Why didn't he win?

election fraud?

or the fact that 50% of the electorate stayed home.

It's a mystery. Steeves was blindsided by the Oswald victory. Auch isn't moving back to Calgary, she's here for the long run. Perhaps she'll run in Hugh's riding, should he choose to quit as an MLA.

Could it have been the endorsement from some old Liberals? (Neville and Harvard)

Yeah, when Neville and Harvard speak, I listen! That's the ticket.

I was shocked that she got so many votes. Why in the world would they import a candidate from out of province, who has done NOTHING for the community she was running in.

She's from here, not a stranger. Plus, she moved here. She's successful in business. She's very well known.

That's why.

Heh heh...ya...they're four of my favorite faces.


Perhaps nobody listens to those old douches, but the signal to Liberals was it was important to vote strategically. Just a very bad signal...a slap in the face to Gerrard.

CBC. Jim McRae gave Neville a couple of shots but they went over her heads.

Encore?

What exactly is your problem with Auch? She spurn you in your yoot? You dislike successful female athletes and businesswomen?

Good lord, you whinge about this potential candidate for not having done anything for her community but say nothing of half the ndp MLAs who have done bugger all despite actually being an elected MLA...

yeah...

Tell me how you feel about The NDP and PC candidates for Tyndall Park?

Neither live in the area, go to school, church or work in the area, not even sure if they were in the area at all during the election. Neither have ever volunteered in the area.....how you feel about them?
