New Brunswick goes home again

Congratulations to Shawn Graham and the Liberal Party of New Brunswick for winning the premiership in a place very close to my heart. Bouctouche has given us a premier now, and perhaps another sort of leader down the selfish neo-conservatism that Lord had brought to New Brunswick and that still reigns in Ottawa. One down. Will we see a Liberal tide like in the 1960's? We can only hope.

Also, I see that David McGuinty has endorsed Michael Ignatieff. He is a strong MP, intelligent and articulate, and I've always been a fan. Not sure why this deserves blogging mention and not the enormous Romeo Dallaire endorsement (which seems to have been lost in the summer heat), but oh well.

By the way, did anyone else notice Ken Dryden finally shatter that woodenness on Sunday? His rant about Harper was outstanding. You can say all you want about how it was targeted for that effect, etc., but what's undeniable was the assurance with which he spoke. Good on 'ya Ken. Ignatieff seemed to enjoy it too.

Graham is from Bouctouche? That's awesome. I wonder how the Dixie Lee Boys vote.

Hmm, this is odd, my steelcitygrit stopped updating for some reason so I saw no comments and your latest post I just found from statcounter. Weird. Anyway I don't think I'm far behind.

Anyway, yes so I hear. The Dixie Lee Boys support the Green Party.

Actually the mayor of Buctouche ran as a tory candidate, interestingly enough. I believe vs. graham though so obviously no dice.
