This and that: Guelph Liberal nomination and Conservative shenanigans

I was hoping to be in Guelph this afternoon/this evening live-blogging the results of the Guelph-Wellington Liberal nomination (which I’ve endorsed Marva Wisdom in) but due to illness, my friend and blogging cohort Michelle (who also endorsed Marva), who was headed that way and was going to give me a lift couldn’t make it (get well soon Mich).

So, I’ll be getting the results late tonight from David Graham, and we’ll see how it all shakes out. I’m told by a couple of people the lineups could be lengthy to just vote, much less count, because of the # of memberships that have joined there for this vote and the limited size of the building (if everyone shows up according to 1 person, there could be 2400 Liberal members in a building which holds 400), so it might be a long night there before we get a winner.

2ndly. I know some people have been balking at the Conservative Government’s appointee to analyze federal opinion-polling methods for being a separatist, but as Paul Wells says, more attention should be paid to the fact this fellow isn’t exactly squeaky-clean. Also, isn’t it rather convenient the Tories are excluding looking at public opinion polling practices during their own current mandate? It’s also very interesting they wouldn’t just choose the current Auditor-General Sheila Fraser to do the digging, if things need to be dug up.

    Predictable I’d say.

  • I am looking forward to getting the results, as well as the % of turnout.
