Don't Juno

Congratulations to Diablo Cody for her Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen, Oscar for the partially shot in Burnaby film Juno.

CTV was reporting another positive last night. Despite no wins, there were ten Canadian Oscar nominees. Let's hope next year brings a more successful sequel for Canadian film.

How much is richmond paying - in cost overruns I mean - for that oval?

I'd feel sadder about losing that money.

"I'd feel sadder about losing that money."
That certainly was not Mayor Corrigan's concern. Oscar connection to Burnaby may be nice, but it will never be as much a resort maker as the Olympics.

Cunningham has a Vision

Former federal Liberal British Columbia president Bill Cunningham could soon be working for Vision Vancouver mayoral nomination candidate Allan De Genova. In an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Cunningham confirmed he has been "talking with Al and his campaign. And, although the parameters haven't necessarily been hammered out, I have agreed to help out the campaign in whatever capacity makes the most sense for them. Al's a great guy. And he's got a lot of great people and energetic supporters. And it seems like something I want to be a part of." Asked about rumours he might be paid up to $10,000 for his trouble, the Burnaby-Douglas Grit candidate chuckled and said, "It certainly would not be anything at that level."

Time for a new entry.

So, does this call for a true moment of panicking? No, I am not talking about conservatives who are backing Mayor Sullivan's re-election, but rather, it should be NDP who is concerned, who knows which prominent figure from NDP will fall victim to B.C. Liberal's magic touch, federally speaking.

But does it make sense to make enemies out of Greg Robertson's fellow NDP supporters who will be the same people that is going to help Libby Davies and his mortal enemy getting elected? It may very well turn out brilliantly if he call back faith liberals that suffered under the hands of NDP from backing Robertson and single handedly bring him down. That sort of victory will immediately establish himself as the one to beat against an NDP MP rather than the other way around. But a landslide loss can also be equally embarrassing & damaging to his own campaign.

"Gobbleygook blarg" to you too
What the heck are you trying to say?

I understand the bit about the BC Liberal's magic touch (in an slightly amused fashion) but the second paragraph is just incomprehensible.

Are you talking about Alan DeGenova without naming him?

Or are you the same person who sees Colleen Jordan leading the future rebellion against Derek Corrigan? Cause that could explain a lot.

This blog explains quite a bit too.

Some people have too much time on their hands, especially the fool who keeps going on about Colleen Jordan going for the Mayor's nomination.

De Genova v. Robertson, it does not take a saint to see which side is the favorite. NPA mayoral race, like the Republican Party primaries have seen its establishment candidate that has lined up the necessarily endorsements is already looking to gain the nomination no matter the fluctuation in popularity.

But VV as an opposition party is not even close to lining all the support needed to coronate Robertson mirroring the race to Clinton vs Obama. And the candidate that looks more independent may simply slowly gain an edge against the one that is more partisan. And given the nature of the councilors that used to follow, now current Liberal Senator Larry Campbell, Bill Cunningham's ability to maneuver a surprise endorsement cannot be understated. I do not think Bill Cunningham considers the NDP supporters in VV as his friends let alone framing this as a friendly contest.

Any comparison to Clinton / Obama and the civic election in Vancouver is silly.

They are completely different, different elections, different countries, different electorate.

As for Bill Cunningham, he lives in a protected political environment.

Bill is just helping DeGenova to earn a few bucks to pay for that campaign office of his that he stupidly got into a lease on last year.

Users of Hoodia should make sure that there is nothing in Hoodia Prime that they are allergic to, especially if they have allergies to natural products. Alprazolam l p r z l m trade name xanax, available among other generic names is a short acting anxiolytic of the benzodiazepine class of. Consequently, you are physically less hungry. Hoodia diet seen on 60 minutes new hoodia diet patch promises fast weight loss, no hunger! hoodia diet means you. It also gave me the habit of not eating as much in the first place.
