The Terrace Daily News featured this video with a display on their front page. It is edgy, well, the repeated screechy ‘Liar-Liar-Liar-Liar-Liar’ is edgy but then, because you know what, you know what? It is true!
The marijuana question was interesting. Christy dodged it and took a shot at Adrian who supports decriminalization.
Because, do you know what, do you know what? It is all about ‘Growing the Economy ‘she
said that at least 20 times during the TV Debate which can be seen over ‘On the Left Side’ if you missed it.
We had Bill Vanderzalm and Fantasy Gardens-Now We have ‘Christie in Wonderland’ with her ‘Fact-Free Campaign’ and her ‘Fantasy Budget’
Quote from Christie, er, Alice in Wonderland If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?

TweetPremier Alison Redford was criticized this week after she harshly denounced her opposition in a campaign-style speech to a group of school children in Calgary.
