Tories start east coast swing of their cross country Screwed Tour.


Baird took some time off from the main purpose of his eastern trip to announce funding to protect wetlands on the south shore and pet Salty the Owl.

Unfortunately like most birds in captivity, Salty has little control over who is allowed to pet him.

Then it was back to business for the environment minister as he explained the weaknesses of the oppositions plans.
“The people of Nova Scotia get screwed,”  Mr. Baird told the Chronicle Herald editorial board Wednesday.
Of course this is a major improvement over Harper"s campaign rhetoric from previous elections which was "screw Nova Scotia, who needs them".

Harper is scheduled to make a speech in Fredericton today laying out what the Conservatives have to offer as opposed to the Liberals.

It is expected that the people of New Brunswick might get screwed too.

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.
