Day 25: Where the leaders are

October 16, 2009

The opposition leaders are busy this week campaigning for their candidates.

Today, Elizabeth May hit Nova Scotia to campaign for Green hopeful Jason Blanch.  One local columnist thinks Blanch could be the answer.  May heads for New Westminster-Coquitlam Sunday where she will be at a William Deverell book signing event in the riding Rebecca Helps is trying to win.

Also today, Jack Layton campaigned for François Lapointe in Montmagny-L’Islet-Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup.

Tomorrow Gilles Duceppe head out to help Daniel Paillé.

The Amherst Daily News inquires if Stephen Harper will come out to help Scott Armstrong.

On a side note, John Turmel has popped up as an independent in Hochelaga.  Turmel began running in 1979 and on occasion has run in Qubeec as Jean Turmel.  This appears to be his 71st campaign.  Chances are the gambling rights advocate will finish last.

Fin Donnelly meanwhile thinks homelessness should be the issue of the day.  His opponent Diana Dilworth was discussing women in politics with Minister of State Helena Guergis.

The local chamber of commerce is organizing a debate on October 27 for Montmagny-L’Islet-Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup.  It will be simulcast on CIEL-FM.  Chances are Bloc candidate Nancy Gagnon may have some strong opinions on culture.
