    This is it!


    The provincial lelection is today, and my run is over as of 8:00 tonight.


    I hope you all have enjoyed the 4 week respîte from the rabid rantings of this socialist sycophant and revelled in the calm while i've been playing in the political sandbox.

    I have enjoyed sharing my thoughts in my campaign diary thread "WHAT I DID THIS SUMMER.". It is onl y the tip of what will be in the book ,once I can talk about it with a retrospective view. There is much that I would say that was not appropriate o share on a public forum "diary" during the campaign.

    But I am going to be back stirring it up on RJ again tomorrow - see if I don't!

    A few people have had it prety easy while i had to take a break, and lest they smell weakness and blood in the water -- I'm serving notice that the upper_cdn is back.

    Some numbers we are now considering:




    Voter turnout plummeted to 77% down from 84% in 2007 when Islanders voting in the dark past fallen trees and downed power lines after Hurricane Juan

    Province-wide

    Liberals down 4901 votes from 2007

    In any district campaign province wide where at least 10% of the popular vote was attained, campaign signs were integral to strategy and represented a large cos

    While one campaign garnered more votes, his % oft he popular was lower, with a coatlier campaign.

    Our district campaign that garnered 10% of the vote was able to reuse federal election signs. for the same candidate running provincially.

    Colin LaVie's election ad

    Published on October 4, 2011

    Steve Sharratt SOURIS – A victorious Conservative candidate here came home from a victory party Monday night to find the tires slashed on his truck.

    Colin Lavie defeated Liberal cabinet minister Alan Campbell by 30 votes. He was in a caucus meeting and couldn’t be reached Tuesday but town officials confirmed the attack.

    “It’s absolutely disgusting that someone would do this,’’ said Mayor David MacDonald.

    The red truck, operated by Lavie, the town fire chief, was parked in front of the town hall on the Main Street when the incident occurred.
