The Final Days: Newmarket


 

(From now through the end of the campaign next week, I’ll be with the Liberal tour. Regular reports should appear here irregularly.)

This afternoon’s stop at a rather palatial community centre north of Toronto included guest appearances by Belinda Stronach and, traveling separately, a dozen protesters carrying signs upon which were written slogans that corresponded neatly with Conservative party talking points. One wore a poorly fitting hockey jersey. Another insisted on holding his sign upside down (better to express his objection to the carbon tax perhaps).

Mr. Dion and the local candidate strolled around the community centre, flanked by two young girls sporting leather caps and feather boas, with the Liberal leader’s surname painted on their faces. The two politicians talked hockey while overlooking an ice rink, then stopped to pick up some popcorn from the refreshment stand. In keeping with his commitment to a proper social safety net, Mr. Dion gave his to a group of children.

  4. Funny how the distinctiveness of Tory posters never seems to be questioned, despite how they can voice their opinions using surprisingly similar wording. Maybe it’s just me.

  5. Funny how the credibility of Tory candidates hiding from the electorate rarely get questioned in the media.

  8. I believe Linda Diebel is on the same tour.

    She says she can’t believe the number of times she’s heard bystanders say:-

    “There’s an election ? …… when ?”

    Great, eh. We live in a very special world.
