Cunningham takes a hit on Bourque

Over at Bourque, there is a link to Allan Rock Liberal Jonathan Ross's TDH Strategies' blog that attacks Burnaby-Douglas Liberal Billy Cunningham for trying to buy off his Tory opponent George Drazenovic. Drazenovic, who is finally campaigning hard after a slow start, is working to towards beating Cunningham and current NDP MP Bill Siksay on January 23. Cunningham, who is linked to Paul Martin svengali Mark Marisen, has been under much attack from the anti-Martin wing of the Liberal Party.

Saw George's performance at the meeting at Capitol Hill and for the most part he didnt even sound like a Conservative.
One guy from the audience even yelled out that he should be running for the NDP.

One has to be on their last few months of political life to cave in to be running for the NDP. The NDP is usually the last stop before one ends their political involvement.

Ujjal left the NDP to join the liberals...and Stronach did the same from the Conservatives. Larry Campbell and Mobina Jaffer got cushy senate seats...I'd assume all the old, run-down horses end up with the unprincipled liberals.

Campbell and especially Mobina Jaffer are the best examples of why the Senate should be turned over to be elected.

If any of the idiot Liberals in here support Martin in his removal of the notwithstanding clause, he cannot do it alone. It has to be done with votes from at least seven provinces.

So why not take a similar effort and put forth a clause in our Constitution to make the Senate elected without any preconditions?

That is all people currently in the Senate are up for election, pure and simple.

But the Liberals are stupid enough to bring forward the removal of the notwithstanding clause but not smart enough to bring forward what Canadians would like, an elected Senate.

Billy Boy is certainly part of the group of unprincipled liberals if he supports Martin 100%.

The grape vine has it that George is starting some energy company and has gone to the industry Minster David Emerson to get funding. It also has it that George D was told by Bill C to secure the nomination and then just sit and do nothing and he will get his grant money.

From the looks of it that is exactly what George D has been doing, NOTHING!

If it quacks like a duck

The Conservative party might just dump one more candidate?

Anyone who has a start up can go to the federal government and get funding.

Anyone who thinks Bill C has influence on what a Conservative candidate does in private business is smelling the gasoline fumes in the gas can.

But almost any wild supposition comes from Liberal supporters.

Just look at the military ad put out by the Liberals.

Siskay wins.

If you ever wondered what a slug would look like if it was a whore just look at Larry Campbell.
Talk about an out and out sleaze. If you remember back to the last election he was jumping up and down about how bad Harper would be for cities and how we would have Armageddon if he got elected.
Now we know why. This guy had a senate seat in his back pocket and realized it would go up in smoke if Martin lost.
I hope the NDP and Conservatives get together and blow away the Senate even if you have to give them all a golden handshake. In the long run it will be worth it.
After that, make it a combination elected/appointed senate and leave it up to the provinces.
I cant see too many people complaining about a move like that.

Elected and only elected.

The federal Liberals have this silly notion that it is tradition in the Westminster system to have an appointed Upper House.

Australia has had an elected Upper House for decades.
