http://www.tdhstrategies.com/home.html, and check out the entry for january 12th. raises some interesting questions.
These AC meetings are a joke. Once you take out all the hangers on that come with the candidates, the political junkies you are addicted to politics like a crack addict is addicted to crack and people who will attend anything to get out of the house you are left with a handful of losers you just needed an excuse to get away from their deadbeat hubby or the old battle-ax. Not a good cross section of who will be voting.
Egads are we all like this? But the last poster is right, the All Candidate's meetings are a magnet for political junkies.With no hockey on, what else is there to do?
Maybe the TDH Strategies article is the reason Bill Siksay (NDP) was the ONLY major party candidate to show up from Burnaby-Douglas tonight.Paul Martin may have "a lot of time for Billy Cunningham", but Billy Cunningham doesn't have much time for Burnaby-Douglas. Amazing that neither the Lib nor Con candidates would show up for this important event.
Did anyone else notice that only three people were clapping whenever Pynenburg spoke? Even the Communist got more applause than she did.
Amazing that neither the Lib nor Con candidates would show up for this important event. Amazing that some people would call it an "important event".Given a choice between Pynenburgand the Communist, I'd vote for the Communist.
I find All Candidate meetings to be intense and interesting. More interesting than the party leader debates. There are partisan supporters/detracters who cheer/jeer but it adds to the intensity. It's an opportunity for voters to see their candidates in action and ask questions about issues they care about. The candidates performance tends to reveal their character. I have a "pseudo-transcipt" of the Wed Jan 11 All Candidates meeting for Burnaby-Douglas up at:http://www.urbanvancouver.com/node/3241
Good overall summary. Not Hansard but close 'nuff. So we see that Billy Boy has an MBA.All that education and he relies on being given political patronage jobs? Something isn't right there.
