  • I understand #canadavotes but what is #ormistonvote ? #
  • @moneycoach Paul Martin redux? With all due respect, there are better options. He flummoxed Barbara Frum after a budget with bafflegab #
  • Why is the French to English translator saying “militants” on CTV? He said it when Dion spoke too. What word does he mean? #canadavotes #
  • @moneycoach re: P. Martin. Since then I nvr trusted him. He jumped the shark when he called for the banning of handguns in the last election #
  • @hummingbird604 Thanks for ormiston info. I only get CTV @ home [no cable]. #
  • Wait for it….Harper will end his speech with “God bless….” #
  • Yes!!!! #
  • CTV moves to local /BC coverage. Nice. #

  • @mynameiskate In 4 weeks and a day, the results of the Vancoverr civic election will be much more important to me than the one today. #
  • @greggscott A minority Government is good but what we really need is electoral reform with proportional represtentation http://is.gd/45Ob #
  • @Miss604 Re: Chuck Cadman was elected as Reform, then Alliance. Since the new Tories are Reform renamed Donna fits profile/legacy. #
  • @Miss604 @lyteforce Chuck went independent after he lost Cons nomination. Then he won his seat. Now Donna wins. Welcome back/home. All good #
  • @Urbanista Vancouver has never been blue [Emerson doesn’t count] but we get labeled whacko b/c of all the Tories/Reform that do win. Nuts #
  • Love The Daily Show: McCain’s “new” stump speech, same as the old one [from convention] when run side by side. “Its new b/c we say it is.” #
  • Wired/buzzed on election vibe and more. Attempting to disconnect now. Goodnight. #
  • As much as Dubya’s life is on public record, I’m not sure that releasing Oliver Stone’s “W” before the election is a good thing. #
  • @thatbrutha : @bokashiman it was comedy – And your point is….? #
  • Uh-oh… Expenses getting higher than income. Financial crisis looming. Deficit financing possible. Not wanted. #

  • Is it a hamburger or….? http://feelinggeeky.com/?p=145 #
  • Up but not moving until…. #
  • I don’t judge people by the colour of their skin. I judge people by the hat they wear. An OR hat in the city keeps u dry but looks dorky πŸ™‚ #
  • Schadenfreude? THE BROKERS WITH HANDS ON THEIR FACES BLOG http://brokershandsontheirfacesblog.tumblr.com/ #
  • Dion stays on until leadership convention. Dignity in the face of adversity. #
