Good Time Was Had By All!

The Edmonton Leduc barbecue was very well attended and a great success! The weather was beautiful and the location in Leduc was very nice.

James Rajotte stood out in the hot sun from noon to 2:00, talking to his constituents without even a break for a burger. He gets votes from all political groups because he is one of the hardest working MP's of all political stripes. Every polling station last election showed more than 50% support for James, and that includes the new areas in the riding with many people who have moved here from other provinces. He is even respected by Liberal MP's. We met Liberal MP Shawn Murphy when we were in PEI last summer and he had nothing but praise for James.

James also chairs the most powerful committee in Parliament, the finance committee, and has even kept NDP Mulclair in line, not a small feat by any means.



If there is an election this summer, you can bet that James Rajotte will again be the MP from Edmonton Leduc, thanks to all the people of the riding, not just Conservatives. He serves everyone in the riding with fairness and care for the issues.

My only disappointment was that I didn't meet Jen. Jen, if you were there, I was the one handing out the ice cream!

SQ - actually that was kind of funny. I think the exact same thing about biased media stories about your party.

*sigh*

YES East....that is true. The media in this country certainly do act like they are giving paid announcements.

They should put a disclaimer at the bottom of each article.

My name is Michael Ignatieff and I approved this message.

SIGH*.....

Iggy takes to the airwaves this morning. I'm sure he will mention things like 'probation' and 'we need to spend more money on stimulus' and 'the deficit is too high', but in the end he will play hero by saying Canadians don't want an election right now and you can thank him. Then he'll be off on his book signing tour to the UK while his minions hit the summer barbque circuit begging for money.

I would hate to run into Mulcair in a dark alley - he's one scary looking dude (you can see the anger seething behind those rat-like eyes of his). And he's overestimating the NDP's importance by a hell of a long shot.

Any time I have seen Mulcair on QP, he frightens me, as well. He is always so angry and the anger looks genuine. What is his problem, anyway? He is rude, wordy, offensive, and way too angry.
