Gong Show in Jeanne LeBer

If your candidate's representative threw a reporter outside a church, you will be in trouble tomorrow morning.

Even the Teamsters were surprised.

Indeed. It was all anybody was talking about. That, and the same gentleman taking the very last number in line so he could legitimately lurk around in the long wait and talk to voters. Ms. Frulla put on a nice little event, btw. The coffee and mille-feuilles were much appreciated in the bitter cold.

Hon. Sen. Raymond Lavigne pushed Philippe Authier, chief political reporter at the Gazette out of the church. The Dion campaign was giving the wrong address when you were calling to get the place to vote in Jeanne-Leber.

Dion is going to get bad press tomorrow morning. Assaulting reporters doesn't give you very good press.

He's got good numbers tonight but with dirty tactics...

It is the Ignatieff campaign that is in royal trouble in Jeanne Le Ber.

In case you were not aware, it is against the LAW, not the rules of the Party, to give any benifit to a voter (i.e. food or transport).

Liza Frulla broke the law last night and a complaint has been registered already. Same in Wajid Khan's riding and in Richmond against Kennedy.

Iggy is very far from the 40-44% that he needs going into the convention.

grit heart...very far? He's at 31%, with only 28.7% of the vote in. Rae and Dion trail at 21% and 20%, respectively.

He may not make the 40%, and I won't even comment on whether or not that's who I support, but facts are facts.

I admire the die hards, but it is time to think about how you feel if your candidate isn't where you had hoped they would be.

Not sure what your point is.

Iggy is at 31% (with now about 45% of the votes in)

That is far off from the low 40's where he needs to be to be able to win at the convention.

I've just stated a fact.

I don't support Iggy or the next two in the pecking order, so I'm not exactly trying to spin here. I'm just pointing out that it is very difficult for a front runner to win a leadership if he fails to get into the "red zone" on the first ballot. That's just the way these thjngs work.
