Liberal Bias at the Huffington Post

Quote:
Another Huff Post article fawning all over Trudeau. I almost want to tell them to get a room. And on CBC yesterday, Althia Raj fawning all over the LPC. They better pick Trudeau or the anti-NDP media aren't going to know what to do with themselves. Its like the Huff Post has become the LPC friendly version of Sun Media.

Arthur Cramer's take on the American Huffpo's intrusion into Canada.

Given the American inability to see more than half of the political spectrum, I wouldn't expect anything else from this source. If it doesn't directly pair with Republican/Democrat, it doesn't make sense, or it's radical and fringe.

Tommy Douglas Stamp

For those who didn't know, Canada Post will soon be issuing a stamp with Tommy Douglas on it.

Buy some when they go on sale, and send them on your letters as a show of support for the NDP.

Etobicoke Centre Watch

Judging by what I have seen so far in the attempt to overturn the results of the May 2, 2011 election in Etobicoke Centre, it appears to me as if former M.P. Borys Wrzesnewskyj may be successful in his bid to have the results declare null and void, and a by-election forced to take place in that riding.

If memory serves, the same thing happened in York North in 1990, when a Conservative elected in 1988 had the results overturned, and Liberal Maurizio Bevilacqua won the by-election.

What do you think the chances are that the same thing will happen in Etobicoke Centre?
