I have never been to the Saanich riding and cannot speak on behalf of those people. I can only speak to those people. Mr Lunn has won that riding several times in a row, and has served those people in cabinet. I know that personally I would not vote for a "celebrity" candidate who is running in what her 4th different riding? She is RENTING a house in the area. The Greens evidently commishioned some polling firm to determine their best chance of winning a seat, and while they will not reveal the data they insist that it is Saanich. Other pundits suggest that the Greens best chances are elsewhere. What was the nature of the polling? What questions were asked? If they truly polled a sample of the population, certainly Tories were phoned and questioned. I want to know what the Green party pollsters were asking.
The people of Saanich Gulf Islands have to decide between electing a cabinet minister who actually serves them in government, or voting for a tourist that will have no leverage over anything the government does. I live in West Vancouver, and it is nice to know that I have a representative working on my behalf in the government of Canada. Although my man John Weston gets no TV time. Can I get more TV time for John Weston?
