Is there something in the water?
- Peter Julian wants to ban advertising to the pre-teen set. No more toy ads might make parents rejoice but there are positive forms of advertising towards children and Julian would crack down on them by the look of things.
- Julian's Tory opponent last time, Marc Dalton, is back in the saddle and looking to make a run for the nomination again. He even had a poorly hatched scheme to take over the board of directors for the local Conservative association. Even with his advertising ban ideas Julian should be returned if this guy is who takes him on in the election.
- Up north in Burnaby-Douglas, the rose-cheeked Bill Cunningham is running all over the place trying to get attention - catch him Friday night on OMNI's The Standard. Next thing he'll be renting a plane to fly his banner around town like his old rival, Mr. Democracy. If Julian is safe, Cunningham taking a third kick at the can should make the Liberals a non-factor in north Burnaby for Bill Siksay.
No wonder people are seeing the Greens as a credible fourth party. When does the draft Joe Keithley for MP campaign start?
