Vote for Iggy

The Michael Ignatieff leadership campaign - his second one - appears to be well underway.

While travelling B.C. to help MPs Don Bell and Sukh Dhaliwal avoid being washed away in the ebb tide of the Liberal Party, Ignatieff found time to help Gerry Lenoski in his futile quest for Parliament.

Futile is an understatement.

Look for Lenoski to support Iggy in the leadership convention next year.


Start saving your cash in order to go to the pity party that will be the Liberal Leadership convention.

Sounds like Dion is well past his "best before date"!!!!!!!!!

I wouldn't make too much of Ignatieff's visit to Burnaby-NewWestminster. Ignatieff does what Dion tells him to and Dion does what Joyce Murray tells him to. Joyce Murray owes Gerry Lenoski money and hence the special treatment.

So who owes the voters for this stupid chain of events regarding Dion, Murray and Lenoski?

If Harper wins a majority, Ignatieff and Bob Ray will be 65 by the time the next election rolls around. Paul Martin was 65 when he became Prime Minister and look how long he lasted.

I hear Paul Martin is joining the dogpile on Jack, too.

So now, let's hear some more of that old NDP scuttlebutt on the best finance minister Canada ever had.

Gerry Lenoski: Our man on Wall Street!

Hey, I just googled Gerry Lenoski's latest company, Asia Electrical Power International Group and came up with this site:

http://www.secinfo.com/d15Byn.v1b.6.htm

According to this webpage the address Gerry Lenoski's company EquiCom Management Corporation is:12th Floor 44 Wall Street New York, New York 10005

Now wonder the Liberals parachuted him into Burnaby New Westminster. The man has Wall Street connections! Strangely enough, his campaign website www.votegerry.ca makes no mention of his being a Wall Street insider!

Notice that the Liberal leadership candidates Gerry Lenoski has supported all represented the far right wing of the Liberal party. Maybe Paul Martin wasn't right wing enough to merit his support. Progressive voters in BBYNW had better play it safe and vote for Peter Julian. Lenoski may turn out to be another Emerson!

Lenoski will only be one thing.

A supporter of Iggy in the leaership vote next year.

Curiously, what happened to all of this talk of the Conservatives not running a candidate so that everyone can vote for Billy Boy??

And the Liberals actually have a
"far right"? That would mean being close to being a bit of a Red Tory wouldn't it?

The NDP are cowards.
They only talk about the local candidate they can defeat. Gerry.

Nothing about Cunningham?
That's because they're afraid of giving the MP-in-waiting too high a profile.

It must be kind of scary watching Stephane Dion absolutely ace the French language debate while Layton finishes in fourth spot.

Cunningham will be a third time loser in two weeks. Be there when it happens.

You obviously aren't getting enough medication yourself.

You're singing digitally because you're probably suffering from being "Mr. Floppy" too much of the time.

Bill Cunningham = high profile?
Well, other than standing next to Paul Martin after both of them helped assassinate Mr. Democracy, he has, literally, no profile in the community.

But just because nothing qualifies him as MP, does not mean that the successor of the man involved in diamond-ring-gate is qualified to represent the riding. He would have no mandate had it not been the split among anti-NDP votes. I think it is time for Burnaby to elect a cabinet minister material.

Why attack Gerry instead of Bill Cunningham?

Because there is so much ammo to attack Gerry with. If there were stuff on Billy the way there is on Gerry, don't you think it would be used? But Billy doesn't maintain an office on Wall Street, or sit on the board of any corporation that has been delisted by various stock exchanges 7 times? Billy has not tried to drum up investment in a Chinese manufacturing company that doesn't own the patents for most of the products it manufactures and has no insurance in case of environmental disaster or workplace injuries. Billy has never been involved in any companies who tried to pass off Egyptian, Yemenese, Libyan and Saudia Arabian sand dunes as oil exploration properties.

"Successfor of the man involved in diamond-gate"? A bit silly there.

Ronald is far from being one step
from a Minister's Office.

Hard to defeat an incumbent.

I think so. It is silly because the core NDP supporters continue to vote for someone who worked for, literally, a thief.

Dr. Leung may not be one step away so far, but Bill Siksay is a river away from the PM's office. Is Dr. Leung a cabinet material? With a degree in chemistry, I can certainly see him taking on the environment portfolio. It is obvious urban GVRD voters will be the demographics that will be targeted by Harper in the future.

A degree in chemistry does not nessesarily mean a DCabinet Post, not even specifically the environment. Yonah Martin is also trying to defeat an NDP incumbent so she too could be considered, but neither will be because geography plays an important part.

As for people supporting Siskay and is working for a thief, what does it say about voters who support a Premier who was caught
drinking and driving?

Let us not get into that silly argument since we all know how NDP was wiped out from Victoria, and yet there are people who would loyally, or as some may put it, blindly vote for NDP no matter what. But I would diamond-ring-gate is already too low and that argument should be finished.

As for Dr. Leung being a cabinet material. Yonah Martin is a teacher, who is respected very much. But who is the last teacher that made it to the cabinet? The most prominent conservative MP candidate with Asian descent in BC is by far Dr. Leung. True, Bill Siksay will likely never make it to the cabinet, but I hope some nay-sayers will stop being such sour grape and actually vote for someone that can actually do so.

Wake up voters.
Pharmacare is the biggest boondoggle in this election - and it's proposed by the only leader to use a private care clinic.

It's a potential multi-billion dollar handout to an industry that already has some of the highest profit margins in the corporate world!!!!

Housing, food and employment security are much better responses to mental health problems than a handfull of pills.

Congrats Jack. You sound like a new breed George Bush-style socialist. Money for companies, not people. You've sold the soul of the NDP.

It should have been finished after the 2005 election when Svend Robinson lost in Vcr. Centre.

The point was a comparative.

There are many who vote BC Liberal no matter what, including supporting the idiotic carbon tax.

Occupation doesn't have much merit in cabinet selection. It is the individual, their showing of initiative and geography.

That's kind of a silly statement to make, since it dilutes the merits of those who are non-Asian.

and actually, there are only about 2 or 3 Asian candidates running for the Conservatives. So you're advancing one out of 2 to 3 people out of let's say 36 candidates.


True, Bill Siksay will likely never make it to the cabinet, but I hope some nay-sayers will stop being such sour grape and actually vote for someone that can actually do so.

Well might be kind of hard to do, since Leung's election does not gurantee him a cabinet post.

If he does win, he would be best to spend the first term knowing the riding and serving the needs of the constituents rather than playing up to overzealous political junkies who want him in cabinet by the end of the 1st Session of the House.

Jack Layton who is flying around in Air Orange has the biggest carbon footprint of all the party leaders.

This is his homelessness policy.

Layton is only better if you're on medication. (And need help paying for it.)

I'd rather see the political parties fix medicare before they start handing out money to the pharmaceutical companies.
