It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

...A Christmas Election!

Dona Cadman will seek the Conservative Party nomination in Surrey North this fall.

I don't wish her any harm, but I have to wonder why she's aligning herself with the party -- and the PM -- that screwed her late husband so badly? I'd love to support her. But not as a PCP candidate.

Dona, Sweetie -- run as an Independent! Give me a reason to vote for you!

...just seven months after the last election, 15 months after Conservatives in Halton nominated a candidate, and with a sitting MP in place (that would be me), that the locals would be told by the nationals they had to strike a candidate search committee, and do it tout suite.

Ah, yes -- the Thorn In The Tory Paw is thinking someone is looking for a pair of tweezers to yank him out of his seat.

Whoever is trying to dislodge Garth as a candidate (not to mention as an MP) should take a deep breath and look around very carefully. Garth's constituents like Garth a lot. The CPC party just might find itself being tweezed out!

And finally, the reason behind why-I-think-we're-heading-for-a-Christmas-election:

The government has said it will consider the vote one of confidence. An election would be called if it loses in the minority Parliament.

So, fellow babies, batten down, gear up, and set your sights. I wonder who's gonna be running the show six months from now?

UPDATE:

Harpr's plane has a skeleton crew and staff to carry as many Canadians as possible, who arrived in Cyprus by ship from Beirut.

Not bad electioneering, eh?

Seriously -- this is one of the most positive moves Harper could possibly make. He's on his way home from the G8 Summit meeting anyway, and it's not like Cyprus is that far out of his way. I give him full marks for this one.

Yes, I do think it was his own idea. From what I've seen of his handlers, they not only wouldn't think of it, but they probably tried to override him on this.

Way ta go, Stevie!

I think they want to try it before the Liberals regroup, not bad strategy really, and his approval rating is pretty high. Probably even higher with the recent airbus rescue thingy...
