Pump ad protest opportunities lost

As per this CTV breaking news report here, Fuel Cast Network the company that runs the Point of Sale advertising at fuel stations apparently won't allow political ads. 

Now that is disappointing, Stage Left, BigCityLib, Dr. Dawg, John Waugh, Red Tory and others were getting a great protest organized where we could actually give Steve and his Neocons some direct Southern Ontario feedback.

You would think if you announced your campaign to the press saying you were going to be on the pumps, you set up your web site with pictures of pumps, you even send out emails with pumps, that you would at least check to make sure that Fuel Cast would run the ads.

These Tories are either the poorest marketers I've ever seen, I mean you must of had a contract right or they realized they were going to get their ass handed to them at the pumps.

Come on they chose an oil spill as their spokesperson, only a Tory would think that was cute.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
