The Fight

The Liberals have set Ronald Leung in their crosshairs. Big City Lib is drawing further attention to the Burnaby-Douglas Conservative.

Earlier this week the Globe and Mail highlighted the battle between Leung and incumbent NDPer Bill Siksay.

On a side note, Leung's website is not website.com but rather RonaldLeung.ca.

Talk about not paying attention to the details!

This is bad on his part. Obvousily someone didn't read the final print of the design before the plastic plates were made for them.

and to think his campaign manager is getting good bucks for doing the work, not to mention a few others probably.

A text book case of an example to ensure everything is proofread before printing.

Not the first time signs were made in error. The BC Liberals forgot to imprint "Authorized by Official agent" on theirs twice (2001 and 2005) so that meant using butt ugly stickers on every one of them.

His website is not all his own, it is a generic website made by the Conservative Party for candidates, a cookie cutter website if you will. The candidates were not compelled to use it, thankfully.

The BC Liberals had these dumb things for the 2005 campaign (the underlying web constructor was very clumsy to use and most who were using it, hated it).

But as always someone gets the big money off these things and the volunteers are stuck using badly made products.

As someone who knocked on doors in the rain and was shut out by angry home owners, I think I have the legitimacy to agree with some of the criticism that is present. The campaign team appears to be paid very well for what they actually do and their whole strategy is very clear, to let the national party support carry their candidate to the top. Some of the team seem so guarded that is seems even some of the them themselves dont want Ronald Leung to be seen in public. Not to mention the dis-organization, the details!? I would sacked my campaign team members with huge mistakes like this, they GET PAID, for my goodness sake. The only thing they needed to come up is a name and a picture and they can just print out pamphlets and signs and hope for the best.

The signs in the riding have out-numbered liberals by far, and more surprisingly, the NDP. The support in the riding is strong. Dr. Leung's is also a well known figure within the local ethnic community. If he loses, it is not because of the candidate that he is, but it is, no less obviously, the nature of his campaign team. I almost wish Dr. Leung dont get elected just to teach them a lesson who probably cant re-elect Dr. Leung. But of course we know that Dr. Leung in Ottawa will have by far more influence than our incumbent.

Who is the idiot managing the Leung campaign? Is it the same bozo that ran it for George (whats his name) last time?

Wrong website on the signs is total incompetence.

Hopefully this guy is paid by the votes on election day and not just for sitting on his butt in the office.

On a wholly different topic.
A very sincere man runs for council.
Tom Tau is good people.

Ask him about his NBA experience.

They get paid on a per campaign basis, not based on how many votes.

But it is true that incompetence is heavily rewarded in politics, no matter what party.

Probably cuz he doesnt have to decide to either endorse Corrigan or other no-factors.

But he is a conservative and expect him to vote for Dr. Leung.
