I was one of those “organisers” of an all-candidate debate / meeting that the news articles often refer to. Our debate last night in the riding of Ottawa South was quite well attended with around 500 members of the community showing up at a local high school auditorium to hear what the all the candidates . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Debate no-shows – they are slaps in the faces of those who organise them…
Predicting election results is a mug’s game. Any prediction of a result outside one’s own riding relies on an analysis of someone else’s polling results. And these have been, um, a wee bit unreliable lately. Do YOU see a Wildrose government in Alberta? Nope. So I’m sticking to my riding for now – Ottawa South. . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Ottawa South 2014 – John Fraser deserves the MPP gig
No, I’m not talking about the Ontario election leader’s debate that went down last night. The leaders – and more importantly, the audience – remained civil (if you count constantly interrupting each other “civil”) for the most part.

Woot! Come on everyone! Woot with me! I just don’t “get” people who don’t get excited about elections. It is the one tangible time when we, as citizens, can choose what a part of our democracy will look like. As we are CITIZENS, dammit! Not “taxpayers” as conservatives like to call us! CITIZENS!! And as . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: E Day in Ottawa South!

The Liberal Party nominee has come under some criticism during the Ottawa South by-election over some files that were the responsibilities of his predecessor, and the former Premier, Dalton McGuinty. These have not been fair criticisms. I, as a resident of the riding for 10 years and as an active member of the community, would . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: John Fraser has earned the right to represent Ottawa South as the MPP
If Harvey Locke is elected in Calgary-Centre the portfolio of energy critic for the Liberals is wide open. This may be a plus for the Liberal campaign in Calgary-Centre after all.
