Edmonton-Leduc NDP campaign diary, Day 2

Had an interesting and fruitful day today.
  • Organized a short canvassing training session for a few volunteers in the morning, then canvassed for 4.5 hours. Several new sign locations identified, several signatures added to our Elections Canada documentation (we should be ready to march down to their office in Edmonton by Thursday at the latest), several very nice supporters found. 
  • Had a rather lengthy doorstep discussion with an undecided voter in the Greenfield area - he had questions about health care, pension reform, childcare, taxation, Tory "hospitality" expenses - and left with definite support for the NDP and a sign location on a major street. 
  • At the very end of the canvass, talked to a former Conservative supporter who said that he "just cannot force himself to vote Tory this time around". Music...
  • New volunteers identified in Edmonton, Leduc and Devon. Sign placement to activate tomorrow.

    He is currently on an important government body ( Provincial or Federal??)investigating the Oil Sands. conflict of interest???yes , big time.

    He was in the PM's office and was promoting the Tar Sands when he was supposed to be studying the environmental impact of the Tar sands!
