Another Conservative “cover-up”

It’s bad enough that there’s no sight of Conservative candidates campaigning to public crowds in Regina, but Conservative-friendly orgs are also trying to cover-up their interview contents.

This particular Con candidate is running in Wascana, against Goodale, among others. I once saw a sandwich board say he was door-knocking in Parkridge, and another time his campaign flyer came to the door. That’s the extent of interaction I’ve had with this man who passionately wants to end a woman’s right to choose a pregnancy or not.

In contrast, I’ve sat next to Ralph Goodale last week at a candidate’s forum, and interviewed Frances Simonson of the Greens for my blog.

CBC Wrecks Another Debate #elxn42

I’ve long called for More Debates, Not Fewer Debaters, and CBC again disappoints.

My Feb. prediction, sadly is coming true.

The unethical fools at the Broadcast Consortium will probably gladly keep Elizabeth May away from the debates this year too.

Here’s a portion in High Definition:

And another segment (it’s also included in the long video at the top, so if you’ve seen that, there’s probably nothing new in this clip either.)

So you don’t have to imagine what it would have been like if a Conservative candidate had bothered to show up:

Not surprisingly, the musician is being investigated by the paranoid and vindictive Harper Government.

The Streisand Effect is working though, and is a hit today.

#elxn42 underway

Although political blog traffic goes way up during an election campaign, I haven’t put anything on my blog since the writ dropped. That’s partly because I have better things to do than analyze an election campaign that is too bloody long (unless it is 140 characters at a time on Twitter). Maybe I’ll add more in three weeks when it’s a more reasonable time to start talking about election day.

Hands up if you think the Cons will take illegal donations and overspend again.
*shows hand*

This is also the first election in 9 years that I don’t intend to work for Elections Canada so I may volunteer to scrutineer instead.

Ignorance Means Power For Conservatives

A cringe-worthy tweet explains the Conservative mindset in running the election campaign early before school gets back. Keep kids in the dark, and disengaged so wise old people can continue to run things for them. Poppa Harper knows best.

Aron’s autobiography:
“Conservative. Pro Oil & Gas. Man made Climate Change is a farce. Anti Trudeau / Wynne and the biased MSM [Mainstream media].”

Starting the campaign abnormally early is a ploy to burn through campaign budgets of competing parties, rather than making ideas and people the focus of the campaign.
