08:22 Bishop Grecco intrudes into campaign over abortion »The Guardian - Opinion
There is something about Justin Trudeau that causes some Catholics on P.E.I. to see red and not Liberal red. The intrusion of the Bishop of Charlottetown into the P.E.I. election campaign is proof of that. The bishop decided that Thursday was a good day to remind parishes of a directive he ...

08:17 The political dance of necessity »The Guardian - Opinion
It’s the season of awkward dances on Prince Edward Island, and I am not talking about upcoming high school proms. Anytime you survey a dance floor, it’s easy to point out the couples that look like they belong. They’re comfortable with each other, anticipate each other’s moves and know that ...

No surprise, the talk was about the provincial election. That’s what you get when you put a political insider in a room with an interested observer. Olive Crane’s old riding? Up for grabs. Ron MacKinley’s old riding, same thing. Hal Perry, after his flip from the Progressives Conservatives to ...

It is plain to see with anyone with eyes to see: Wade MacLauchlan’s claim that he and the P.E.I. Liberal Party are being ‘bullied‘ by negative campaign ads is actually an act of reverse-bullying. The bullied, in fact, is the bullier. MacLauchlan is the aggressor here. He’s the one saying, in ...

Yikes, how bad can it possibly get? It appears to be documented proof, and even Jean Chretien knows, “You have a good proof, if is proven”. PEI Government encouraged a company to use offshore companies and skirt around or ‘evade’ Canadian taxes. PEI Finance looks more like ‘racketeering’, as the CMT lawsuit unfolds.

Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language, Graphic Violence)
Runs: 97 minutes
Director: Yann Demange
Country: UK
Released: 2014
Starring: Jack O'Connell, Sean Harris, Sam Reid

“Jack O’Connell is mesmerizing as British soldier Private Gary Hook, who’s left behind by his squad when a riot breaks out in strife-torn 1971 Belfast... Over the course of one impossibly dramatic night on the street, Hook survives explosions, gunshots, knife wounds, and betrayals by dirty cops on both sides of the Troubles... First-time director Yann Demange matches Spielberg’s or Hitchcock’s knack for heightening the you-are-right-there tension... This could be 2015’s most invigorating directorial debut.” - Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly

21:03 Provincial Election 2015 (476 Words) »PEIinfo.ca | New Topics
Wow....... has this place died?

In the midst of a PEI Provincial Election, and not 1 thread dedicated to it? There is a bit of relevance in the "Ghiz et al." thread, but let's dedicate this space to "coffee shop" chatter.

Any thoughts so far?

Wade and Ranald sparing?

Rob's attack ads?

Wade asking for the stop of attack ads?

Peter's signs vandalized?

Trudeau campaigning on the Provincial front?




Do I feel that the Green Party or NDP have a chance at winning even one seat? No. I feel that they will have stronger showings in certain ridings, but not enough to win a seat.

Personally, I feel that the Liberals are running scared. Perhaps this is for good reason. Wade has said that he wants transparent government, but will not promise to look into his predecessors actions on e-gaming, PNP, etc...... This is anything but transparent. I have heard somebody refer to him as Wade McGhiz, and perhaps this is fitting as the contempt for the people of PEI seems to be same old, same old as the last administration.

Do I condone the attack ads the PC's are running? No. Do I feel that the information is relevant, and should be relayed to the population? Yes. I understand that Wade has not been the Premier for long, and that most of the big questions happened before him. When Wade won the leadership of the Liberal party (coronation......but that is another story), he inherited the right to be Premier of PEI without one single person voting for him. This gave him a distinct advantage entering this election. He has been able to be in the spotlight, as Premier, for a few months making announcements, and setting PEI policy as he sees fit before he called an election. Do I fault him for this? No. In the same breath, as he inherited the advantages of being the party in power, he also inherited the downside.......the baggage.

I feel very strongly that it is the job of the 3 non-governing parties to hold the governing party's feet to the fire, and demand answers for their actions during the last term. This is what democracy is all about. The governing party has no right to ask the electorate to put on blinders and vote for them only on promises going forward. I feel that it is the right of the electorate to have explanations regarding the past decisions made by the governing party, and any attempt to cover over these answers scare me. I feel by not providing answers to the questions, it proves that there is no will to improve on transparency....

20:01 Maybe Prince Edward Islanders Have Been Calling the Wrong Police? »redlikeme.ca
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is under investigation by the Provincial Police, for candidate rigging in the past election. Identical rigging in PEI, by surrogate Premier Wade Maclauchlan, trading a top advisors posting for his riding, goes unmentioned. Emasculated Robert Vessey quickly handed over the reins in the riding. Maybe Islanders can get Ontario Police to … Continue reading Maybe Prince Edward Islanders Have Been Calling the Wrong Police?

18:57 Calgary Reader Sees Similar Elections in Alberta and PEI »redlikeme.ca
There are striking similarities between the seemingly flailing Alberta Conservative party in the lead up to their spring election and the Wade MacLauchlan led Liberal Party of Prince Edward Island as they go to the polls. Both parties had a sort of “coronation” after both ruling parties previous leaders resigned amid scandal. For the Alberta Conservatives, … Continue reading Calgary Reader Sees Similar Elections in Alberta and PEI

If parties can’t score political points on their own strengths nobody wins. Every so often there appears a photo or a video showing a bully getting a taste of his own medicine. To some, the punishment is seen as justified: The ‘if he can dish it out, he should be able to take it’ sort of philosophy.
